    Oh, I love you! You're everything this show's all about! That's why I've always loved you since the beginning! I'm your biggest fan! This is why I do this show--I love you, dog!

    I'm so done with AI. Since Simon left, it's all a love fest where there's no critique at all 'cause they don't want to hurt the little darlings feelings, whom, btw, they all picked so they don't want to look bad. Stfu. It's boring.

    Simon was a shit head at times but now you see why it worked. Way to much ass licking / kissing on the show.

    Several of the "sent-homes" were a hell of a lot better than a few that were chosen.

    I don't know if any of you have auditioned for AI or know anyone who has, but the entire process is ridiculous. You have to audition for the producers before you even get in front of the three 'judges'. I have extremely talented friends that didn't even make it to the judges because they are fat or boring or don't have some horrific sap story that the producers can use and abuse to warm the viewers hearts. The entire process sucks. I won't watch the show anymore.

    You actually thought the judges see every participant? Lol.
    The whole thing is eventually voted on by girls under 18, its nothing but a high school mentality popularity "contest".

    I'm not sure who said that but if you are referring to me, no... I never thought that. I just don't like the process the producers use.

    Kinda my thought process too. I'm not huge into these types of shows anyway, but if I'm going to watch one, I'd rather watch The Voice.

    Sorry, not directed at you.. should have been "some people acctually believe the judges see every contestant?"

    I'm not. Its on 3 nights a week in the other room. i try hard to ignore it. (very small house, if I could escape it I would !) Thats why i made it a drinking game!

    Yes I pretty much said the same thing.

    Not judging at all... More like "fuzzy feel goods" for every contestant..

    Before Tuesday and Wednesdays shows, the judges were on hand for an early rehearsal so that gives them more time to see them sing and prepare for their comments that night air time.

    How long does it take to prepare for saying "Yo!"

    I used to love this show, with the three original judges. I watched it for the first time in a long time this past week and was incredibly disappointed. It seemed like a terrible karaoke contest. I've become more of a fan of The Voice instead.
