last year there were a bunch of us that where always here every single week and after every single show. there are some that come here and there and pop in and 1 person that is there after every single show because he gives me all the updates because i cant watch it right now :) thank you BIGFOOT my point it i was woundering where everyone had gone... there can be a number of reasons...1 you dont watch it anymore 2 you dont feel like discusing it (no worries it doenst bother me i was just woundering) 3 maybe you just do not like the new judges 4 maybe you dont like the new rules and chages ect ect ect.... i was curious what your reasoning is i know a lot of people just simply stoped watching it all together because of the judges and the rules and people do not like the contestants at all...

I have few explanations for that, first the ratings of that show dropped, so some of the people who were discussing must not be watching this season. Then we have people who cant stand the WGWG winnings half a decade streak so they jumped shift to the voice, X-factor and in my Case, Eurovision. Then there are people who dont like the new judges,Nicky Minaj kind of annoys me, i hate her music but wo kows I ma like her as a judge. This one may sound ridiculous, last season is overhyped because of a Filipino American contestant. You know how obsessively supportive Filipinos are....They over hyped every single Filipino American in American Idol.I think the Filipino members here dont watch American Idol if there is no Filipino American contestant.(that is not my reason for skipping this season though) Anyway My reason for not being able to discuss and watch this season is my work shift (my job have so much responsibilities) and you can also blame the videogame Tomb raider,after work instead of watching TV, I am helping Lara Croft in her adventures. okay, give me a week, I will marathon all episodes of this season so we can discuss it, I will be half a season late but I will catch up in one week, Let me download the episodes first. I will take a break from Lara Croft for now, as I had been frustrated by the thousands of "game over" I had been frustrated on seeing her dying over and over again because I am in the hardest part of the game at this moment.

I hadn't noticed that the rating had gone down but I am sure there are a lot of people who just stopped watching it all together. yes I have heard of a lot of people changing what they are watching...I do now watch x-factor on youtube sometimes but I still would watch americam idol lol. nicki annoys me a lot to specially as a judge. at auditions her and Mariah spent most of that time bickering and arguing. it has stopped for now and I am glad about that but still didn't like it and I am hoping to have new judges next year. exactly!! I think that I had a few Filipinos discussing it here with me and I guess with no Filipino on the show they ask themselves "whats the point in watching it" I would watch it either way but I do see why they may not be here with us this year. I can understand your reason as to not being here to discuss it. your job is definitely more important than this discussion and the show!! what are you playing that game on? (xbox. wii, ps2, ect ect.) the game over would annoy me to much lol and I probably would have given up a while ago lol well took a break from it at least lol nothing wrong with it being half a season late :) me I cant even watch it until I watch it online the next few days. I get the updates on the show right here at mylot after each show. I will say this last nights discussion brought in a lot more people tho and it was nice lol so when you get time we will be waiting :)

Unfortunately, Adriano was not as good as Jessica Sanchez because her voice is so plane and same goes with the other lady who didn't qualify. i think future fil am contestants shouldn't compare themselves with past fil-am singers. i think it got off also when nicki asked if she was filipino, that probably had gotten her lesser votes

i dont know about lesser votes because of being a filipino because it seemed last year that the filipinos were hammering the votes for the filipino contestans...but i could be wrong

yes nicki is one of the judges and i am not to fond of her myself. i dont know if you watched any at all of this season but at the beginning during the auditions nicki and mariah spent a lot of the time fighting back and forth about stupid little things...it has gotten way better and they havent been arguing as much. it would realy be nice to see a diffrent panel of judges next year!! which one of the judges do you miss the most fompast seasons? i miss steven tyler a lot. i really really miss simon!! i do miss J-Lo to but i do not think that she will be coming back but you never know...

I watched about the first half hour of the first audition... Yes it was all the bickering that turned me off..It was like the show was about them and not the contestants.... When the panel of judges had j-lo, and Steven Tyler I thought was the best.... I do watch Simon on the X factor.

well i almost stopped watching it because of the arguing because yor right it really did take away from all the contestants that were auditioning. well like i said it has gotten better bt nicki's attitude just isnt something i enjoy seeing on the show. when she gets upset about something that happens it is like she takes it out on all theother contestants rather they had good performance or not.... yes last year seemed to have been a really great panel of judges and i would like to see them again... iheard that simaon was on the voice t but i havent ever really gotten intoi that show and i can nver find th x-factor on tv so i aalways miss that to...

i like the set of judges today. they are not like the judges last year who just agree with each other. but i can say the contestants are not that good. i think i can think of only 5 contestants who can possible win. that's it.

yes these judges are way diffrent than the ones last year. i do miss the old judges and at the beginning of the season all the bickering and fighting between mariah and micki really got to me and was annoying but it isnt to bad now. yes tehe talent is way down from last year. i agree there are only a few possiblilites on who might win. but there is only 1 who is really sticking out in my mind that i want to win and that is Angie. do you have a specific person you are going for to win already?

Based from the episodes I watched by Far, Niki is a female canine, she is so annoying and it sucks that she is in the position of power to judge people who are ore talented than her. I notice they were desperate for a female winners they eliminated a lot of the "cute guys" before top 24.

that is a good point they really did get rid of the guys early on. now here we are at the top 5 and they are all girls. this is the first time in idol history that it has ever been like this! maybe that is what they were doing when they started this year making sure a female makes it to the top spot... Nicki...all i can say is i hope that she is gone next year and i do not have to listen to her. yes she can be nice and she can be mean at times to but there is something about her that annyos me and i wouldnt be sad if she wasnt a judge next year!

Hello crazzy, first i thought Nikki Minaj was awful as most people say it because she annoys Maria Carey but i realized later that she's not that bad since they judge her way too early in the show. second, i don't want to feel hype the way it used to last year, honestly it was my first time to fully appreciate American Idol last year specially with Jessica Sanchez being on it. third, am partly watching it because Candice made it to the top 9 and she used to be with Jessica and Deandree in a trio group in Hollywood. this year, girls are topping up, i doubt the guys can do any better

at the auditions i was really unhappy with nicki and all the arguing her and mariah were doing. i was ready to throw something at the tv. as the show has progressed that has stopped. makes me wonder if a bigger arguement is coming but i really hope not. last year was also my first time to really appriciate the show fully and this year with the new judges and the new changes it just isnt like it was last year. candice has surprised me a lot and i am happy watching her :) does that mean you are rooting for candice this year? i am rooting for angie miller to win :) did you get to see jessica perform the other night on the show?? she was just AMAZING!! the girls are definitly better than the boys this year and i hope that the votes will show that and we will have a female win this year

I thought last year was the best year since the beginning. I started to watch this year but was aggravated with Nicki Minja and the way she was treating Mariah Carey. I watched for about three shows and said I can't watch anymore. The judges are boring and its just not good chemistry between them. I'm not even missing it at all. I watched only the performance of Phil Phillips last week because I heard he was going to be on.

honestly I agree with you. last year was 10 times better than this years. the fighting and bickering from the judges drived me crazzzzzzy at auditions. I discussed not watching it myself but I stuck it out. I really hope they choose different judges this next year! I will admit the arguing has gotten better between nicki and Mariah but still hoping not to see nicki back next year. did you enjoy his performance last week? i think that he was a lt better and out of pain so it made it that much better for everyone! Jessica sanchez was on the show tonight.

Last year the show was on the cable channel that I always watch. This year they don't show it there anymore. It was moved to a free channel which I can't watch. Anyway, I follow the show from news and your discussions here... I can't really make any comments about the show as I don't watch it myself. I do know that the girls seem to be much better this year and that one girl named Candice seem to always get good reviews. Last year there was also Jessica Sanchez which seem to attract many Filipino members to join discussion on this topic.

that sucks that you cant watch it anymore...that is the same problem that I have. I have no cable so I am unable to watch it until few days later online off of the idol website. if you want to try there you might be able to watch it yourself online.. nothing wrong with that :) and you are more than welcome to join in anytime that you want to :) yes the girls are most definitely better this year than the guys. it always seems that the guys get the votes but I am hoping that isn't the case this year! yes that is very true...she was actually on the show tonight and from what I heard she was very very very good tonight!!
