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!
