All jokes aside, I watched the first couple of audition episodes and hated this season I found the whole judging panel too contrived and scripted. Very different from early American Idol seasons imo. I just think pigeon holing viewers of the show by age, gender or genitalia preferences is ridiculous.
Besides tastes change and mine have there are heaps of reality shows that I used to be obsessed with that these days I cannot believe I even watched and I am sure I am not alone.
Still watching.......but Mariah is driving me insane. I'm fast forwarding through everything she says. Not a constructive thing to say. I would like the panel to be Keith and Randy. Get rid of the breathy diva and the nutball rapper.
