American Idol…And Then There Was One

First Simon.  Then Ellen.  Now Kara.  Randy “that was just aight” or “that was pitchy dawg” Jackson is the last man standing on American Idol.  That is definitely a WTF moment if ever I saw one. 

Rumor has it Stephen Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are the front-runners to replace Simon and Ellen.  OMG…can’t we do better???

Unless Simon Fuller pulls a rabbit out of his hat I am so done with AI.

Ellen Is Leaving American Idol!!!!!!!!

Boy oh boy, that didn’t take long!  Ellen said she didn’t feel is was the right fit for her.  She didn’t like hurting people’s feelings and her schedule became more hectic etc….  Wonder if Simon leaving had anything to do with it?  I will be hard pressed to watch anymore unless something magical happens.  Could it also have something to do with Ellen starting her own record label???

Nigel Lythgoe, who is awesome IMHO, is being wooed to come back.  If you watch So You Think You Can Dance, Nigel is a great judge.  He won’t blow smoke up your dress but he can be very complimentary, when warranted etc…  I would definitely tune in if Nigel came back!

Randy “you’re pitchy dawg” Jackson is still under contract…ugh…. Kara is year-to-year but she is ready for Season 10….don’t like her at all.  No Simon and no Ellen.  That sucks for viewers.

FOX better pull a rabbit out of their hat pronto!

TEAM NIGEL!

American Idol Returns!

Mark your calendars folks!  American Idol returns to the small screen on January 12th!  Ellen takes over for Paula 😦 and there is a host of celebrity guest judges this year as well.

Guess time will tell how Paula’s departure effects the dynamic of the show.  Personally, I will really miss her but at least Ellen is funny. 

Finally, something new to watch on the boob-tube in a couple weeks!

Ellen DeGeneres Replacing Paula Abdul On American Idol!!!!!!

How weird. Ellen announced on her talk show that she will be replacing Paula Abdul as the 4th judge on American Idol. It’s a singing competition people! She’s a stand up comic and a talk show host. Not sure how that translates into a judge for a singing competition.

Aren’t there any more qualified people out there????? Nothing against Ellen but for cryin’ out loud!
