I am offended by the question asking if "judges should all be black.". What kind of fu**en question is that. You know if you would have asked if " judges should be white you would have the NAACP, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the million match at TMZ's front door demanding that you take that question down and pay for damages. HOW ABOUT THIS, WHOMEVER IS QUILIFIED FOR THE JOB GETS IT! Black or white. Didn't MJ say it doesn't matter if you're black or white. That question is a disgrace and TMZ SHOULD BE A SHAMED OF YOUR SELF. USA BEOCHES

TMZ STRIKES AGAIN!!! MOST OF THE STORIES AND VIDEOS CONCERNING AFRICAN AMERICANS HAVE A RACIST UNDERTONE OR SLANT TO THEM. THE POLL QUESTION "SHOULD ALL OF THE JUDGES SHOULD BE BLACK?" IS CLEARLY ONE OF THEM. TMZ YOU REALLY NEED TO WATCH YOURSELF. YOU SEEM TO BE SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR A RACE BASED LAWSUIT.

When Idol first came on tv, i really loved the show, but since Simon, and Paula left, and now Randy, sorry i think this show is completely done. They were the 3 musketeers of this show, and to me no one could replace them. They were funny together, and to me got the job done, everyone else after them, can't compete. Sorry, just my opinion. thanks.....

Who are these crazy people that come here to bash American Idol. So negative and full of hate. American Idol will be around a long time. Personally I can't stand XF or The Voice as both are way OTT and are copycat of shows in other countries. I especially can't stand to watch XF but I love Simon.

Idol's viewers now are only fat fraus from middle america that eat fried chicken all day. they just vote for WGWGs (white guy with guitar) that they would like to have sex with. WGWG will win Idol forever.

At least with X-Factor and The Voice people can get different kind of winners.

What about having no judges? Gay Secrest presents the contestants and then people vote. Just it.

I'll watch more American Idol in the next season if they get Alanis Morissette to be a judge instead of Nicki Minaj.

Minaj hasn't done squat in her career compared to Mariah Carey or Alanis Morissette. She's really only been a star for what 3 years?

not going to vote on the ridiculous question "Judges should all be Black". Surely a better question is does it matter what colour the Judges are and the answer should be no. Judges should all be Talented is what i want
