  1. I didn’t like the “fixed” winner last season. I think Idol’s run is over.

  2. Thinking this may be Idols last season. Judges do not excite me at all> Not interested in watching at all!

  3. Don’t think this is going to be a good mix or season.

    Now we’ll see who fills what role. Who will be the goofy space cadet? The snarkily sarcastic hard-to-please one? The helpful constructive criticism giver? The useless seat-warmer?

  6. Ughh, I love the Keith Urban being a judge thing! But everything else, I have no idea. I think it is soo stupid that they think all the judges need to be musicians…

  7. Cindy says:

    why on earth would Keith Urban be so dam low on the earnings totem pole!? That’s crazy. hmmmmmmmm
