American Idol

American Idol Is Burnt Out

burn out idol
Mar 31, 2011 - American Idol has been around for a several years now and it's been the subject of judge-related controversy recently but maybe that's because it's burnt out. The idea isn't genuine anymore. True, it's funny to watch the new season's singing flop auditions but beyond that, I lose interest. These people sound exactly the same and the judges express the same thoughts with every season. Then when it all ends and a winner is chosen, only a few have gone on to make something of their singing careers for longer than a few months. I understand the potential this opportunity can offer to the right person but it's the same contract and the same deals year after year.

The quality of the judges has really gone downhill and I think the reason it lasted so long in the first place was because of the almost mean, brutal honesty of Simon. Now there are judges who will laugh at a bad singer but will ultimately skirt the issue when it comes down to honest responses. I've rarely heard anything about Idol hopefuls from the beginning of Idol, save for Kelly Clarkson. Most of the American Idol winners are only given publicity or record sales upon the event of a scandal, such as Clay Aiken's coming out (which apparently no one foresaw.)

The recent years of American Idol hasn't held much hope. People go on, they sing and get through, or sing and get told to go home, and then they're put through a rigorous singing routine every night until eliminated, and yada yada. There's nothing unique about American Idol anymore and I don't feel compelled to watch the auditions anymore because of the same old thing. It's expected for some singers to be crazy and who is chosen is usually predictable based on which celebrity they sound like and their appearance. When it first came out, I thought it was great because it offered an opportunity for unfound singers to be heard. Now it's a publicity circus.

N/A said: American idol this year has been so bias and racist. How do you let all those good singers go for those one trick pony country singers. Bias I tell you. J-lo of course is not going to pick anyone better than her. You guys don't know what talent is. You need new judges. Bring Simon, randy and paula back!!!!!!! This show has become so bias. People would rather have a white show than a group of talented people.

Mariah brings class & poise to this show! She is a beautiful person. Nicki, is a spoiled B----!! Put some class back in your show, and your ratings will go up, up, up again. Randy, Keith & Mariah have been awesome, & all my friends & family say the same!! Thank you...Sparkles

Tonya said: I'm not personally burnt out, but I will not watch the show again if Nicki is on there another year!! In fact you could finish the season out without her.She is talented and all.. but her behaviour is not family appropriate. The comment about her breakfast choices was the stupidest thing I've heard

Why do those in charge tolerate her sexually charged comments and actions? If I had young children I would not allow them to watch AI. You need to get Miss Potty Mouth off the program ASAP
