Selebraties Suck    

It's supposed to be about the contestants, not the ego maniac judges. They have ruined the show.

Idol is going to be a train wreck. Too many signs, too much competition, too much emphasis on judges, and way too little on showcasing talents.

AI sucks without Simon. There has only has been 3 successful people to come out of it. Kelly Clarkson, Carrie underwood, and Jennifer Hudson. That's it.

America is only 10% black, so why has American Idol chosen a 100% black panel for the show? It is very disproportionate and makes no sense. Call me racist, but it is a turn off, and I will certainly be turning off American Idol.

Guess American Idol desperate & making stupid mistake. American Idol, you had me ready to watch again when Mariah signed on. Now you're trying to get Nicki signed on? Bye bye.

SERIOUSLY, Nicki Minaj?! If that's true, BYE-BYE American Idol! The show hasn't been that great lately anyway. I guess they want to lose viewers.

That is pretty petty of Mariah. I mean.. she's 42, and the other girl is younger. So what? Welcome to life. She seems way too old to be jealous of another female possibly getting attention she thinks she deserves.

What a JOKE! I guess it's not surprising this is how American Idol is turning out.
What the hell does NIki MInaje (or however the hell you spell it) know about talent????? The music industry has officially bottomed in America! Everything is so inbred now. The studios handpick idiots and write them songs (because they sure as hell can't write anything themselves) and then create stars out of thin air. Niki MInaje doesn't deserve to own a mic let alone judge other talent. She's a studio creation and her only talent is having a fat ass!
At least Mariah Carey can sing.

And please for the love of god fire whoever does your voiceovers. HOLY CRAP HE'S ANnOYING! It's like listening to Bob Saget on crack! ANd there's too much personal opinion in these dumb stories. I would imagine most people hate Minaj and prefer Mariah Carey yet TMZ always seems to have some strange hateful slant on every story that caters to whoever's younger.
