      I want to get a dialogue going with regard to the judges on American Idol.  Let’s talk about what you like or dislike about them.  Are their comments truly constructive or are they down right rude or mean?

      Does Simon seem bored and look like he’s just there to fulfill his contract for this last season? How would you look if you were being paid $100M to stay for the last season?

      What about Kara?  Do you think she’s shakin’ it up a little because she is going to be the next ‘Simon’ of the bunch?!

      How are Randy and Ellen doing? Is Randy’s ‘What up, dawg’ getting too old now?  And what about Ryan?  Is he getting prettier and prettier every day or am I just imagining it?

      I love American Idol and if I was younger I would have auditioned!  Who knows if I would have made it but I have lots of courage and fear nothing!  I watch this with my children but really cannot have adult conversation with a 6 and 10 yr old!

      Let’s chat!

        • It’s funny that this post comes today.  I have recorded tonight’s results so haven’t seen them yet, but after last nights show, I generally felt bad for a couple of the contestants.  The judges weren’t necessarily wrong with their opinions, but the way they delivered them left me feeling uneasy.

          I’m a huge Ellen fan and think that she has been a wonderful addition to the panel with her humour.

          I think Simon is softer this year than in season’s past - and what’s up with him and Kara?  Is it just me or do they (she) seem a little to touchie feeley?

          Just my two “scents”

        • I have to agree with Kelly. There just seems to be something going on. Why is Kara always half on top of Simon? And I really like Ellen. But sometimes she tends to go on and on...and

        • I totally agree about Kara being in Simon’s lap.  I think she is just trying to fulfill Paula’s former duties.  Smothering Simon!  It’s actually nauseating! tongue out

        • The judges have to be very derect most of the time, I mean these young adults want to fullfill their dreams and become big rock stars, or recording artist and they need to know what they are getting therselves Into. The world out there Is going to be more demanding and more cruel then the judges are being. IMHO happy

          Simon...I think he Is being a bit softer at times, but he still being simon as well and I love the way Simon Is, Honest. As for him and Kara, I think they are just acting the way him and Paula did, basically Kara Is just taking Paula’s place next to Simon. I think It’s just play for the show.

          Kara...I really like her, shes a female Simon..lol, she tells It like It Is, straight forward.  

          Ellen...I love Ellen, shes funny and shes so sweet and she just Is Ellen, I can see she trys real hard to be mean at times when shes judging the contestants, but she so sweet, It’s hard for her to do that...lol,  Gotta love her!heart

          Randy... Yeah, I am kinda getting tired of the Whaddup Dawg!!  thing, and the calling everyone Dude!, look Dude! Yo Yo Dude!..worried So listen here Dude!!..I don’t know, I guess It’s just something about calling the girls Dudes..Blah!

        • Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that Miley Cyrus looked terrible chomping on her gum!  She was made up so beautifully but ruined it by chewing like she had no manners at all!

        • I think that Kara is a dip stick...sorry but that is my opinion...not sure why though...she just is...lol

          One thing that really gets to me is when they tell one contestant one thing, example would be not to change the song too much, then turn around and tell another contestant that they need to change the song and make it their own...like that to me sounds so contradicting. If I was a contestant that would surely frustrate the hell out of me.

          Ellen is great...she adds a little zest to the show that is refreshing.

          Simon is Simon...and although he seems a little softer he sure can be a d**k head at times...and half of the time I do not agree with him...

          Randy is still the over grown kid...drives me nuts the way he talks....drives me nuts when my kids talk like that...grow up Randy!

          I love Ryan is doing a great job and have no complaints with him.

          I have to admit I do miss Paula...I think she did add a lot to the show...happy

        • That totally drives me crazy and makes me confused when the judges say to change it up a little and when the kids do, they say something like....you‘re not supposed to change a song like that!!!  If i am confused, how do the contestants feel???  lol

          And I didn’t agree with Kara when she told Tim that he should be touching any of the fans hands because he is ‘not there’ yet.  YES he is!  These kids have already developed a fan base even if they are not the front runners AND they are going on Tour with the bunch at the end of the season, so excuse me Kara, he does have the right to reach out to his fans who are reaching for him!!!

        • Actually one thing that keeps pissing me off...LOL, I know right? like they would even care about my opinion..haha, Is when they keep bring up that Paula Abdul song that Andrew Garcia sang and they loved It so much and now they keep comparing his other songs to that one paula song.. Get over It!  It was that one time and they can’t forget about It. It‘’s like what do they want from him? All Paula songs or what?tongue out

          I agree with you Cristina about Kara telling Tim that. I felt so bad for him when she said that. That was kind of mean to say something like that. They say you need to have eye contact and have fun with the Fans and yet when he was doing that, he gets a bad comment like that from Kara.heartbreak

          I don’t like Miley Cyrus. I love her dad...lol happy

        • I think Simon seems at lot softer this year, still Simon, but a softer more likeable version of him (although I’ve always liked him).  I really like Kara too.  Don’t really care one way or the other about Ellen.  A lot of times her mouth is going but she’s not really saying much, kinda like Paula did.

        • Has anyone else noticed that they lip sink the group song at the start of the results episodes?  I think that’s a mistake - most of the time seasoned professionals can’t lip sink well and these kids REALLY can’t.  No jab at them, they just aren’t there yet.

        • LOVE,LOVE,LOVE Ellen heart  Although she rarely has a negative thing to say and uses the same words (great, amazing) quite a bit she lightens it up and makes it fun w/her quick witted humor! How can anyone not appreciate that as it is always great to laugh/smile tongue out

          Randy, well to me is just Randy and honestly I find myself barely listening to him anymore...what is with the “that was dope” when someone has an amazing performance? Must be something new kids (big kids) say-guess I am out of the loop!

          Not into Kara much at all and I liked her last year...I read that she writes her comments for each contestant as she listens to them rehearse. She must then practice her delivery.  She comes up with deep/detailed feedback and she did not use those types of analogies last year, especially that quick..it makes sense to me but I know you can’t always believe what you read.?.

          I have come to appreciate Simon and actually look forward to his comments.  He speaks bluntly and is a straight shooter-although I only agree with him half the time..I do get upset when he is downright mean though...to me that is completely unnecessary.  There are ways to get your point across without being ugly.  It will be interesting to see how the show does without him.  

          Lastly, the Kara/Simon thing is nauseating!!  Does anyone notice that sometimes Kara and Simon either roll their eyes or nudge each other when Ellen gives feedback-what is that about?  I don’t think Kara and Ellen like each other?  Maybe I am way off???

        • I again, didn’t like the way Simon was with Ryan.  What is his problem now a days?  I truly believe that he is not liking being there especially since he knows he’s leaving in 9 wks?
