I realized the other night, that I have been watching americain idol since the first season for one main reason. Simon Cowell. He will take you throught the whole emotional roller coaster. He will P*ss you off , but then again lots of times you are gratefull to him for he is the only one who will tell the truth, whether it is politically correct or not! I watch each week, waiting to here what he will comment on. He is not afraid of what anyone will say. He just speaks his mind. You go boy!!

Like what he'll say: 100% yes!! I agree with you 100%! The only reason why AI has ratings that literally go thru the roof is because of Simon Cowell. I mean if all the judges were like Paula and Randy going, "oh it was just a bit pitchy..." or something like that, the show would have been a bore. But Simon is the voice of the living room audience! What the stage audience don't know is there are people who are actually saying, "Hey he sucks!" or something like that but can't actually be heard by them so Simon does the talking. His comments are actually very reliable because most of the time he's right about it! I think he became less rude this season because he stopped criticizing on Sanjaya and has been really soft these days. Well the main point here is, Simon's the best! yey!

There seems to be a lot of people who watch for the same reasons you do. I think we like to get our emotions stoked once in a while to remind us that we are alive. Bottom line on Simon, the man does know the industry and recognizes good talent vs. bad. I can understand being in his position seeing so many people and just wanting to cut to the chase. He knows he is entertaining and that people love to hate him. He would be a fool to ever try and change anything about the way he does things.

i think simon had a little problem that he thinks that the contestents cant sing well and he thinks that in the world only he knows whats good and whats not but some time i also feel that simon commenst well too bcuz every one dont sing too good too and for being and idol that the first most important thing if the singer is not perfect in singing and is not confident while performing the sing cant become an idol

I agree simon could be a tad bit more open, but listening to people sing, and telling them what he thinks is his job, on and off idol.

I really love Siomon Cowell, even though some of the people hate him. I totally agree that he's the best judge between the three of them. Well, sometimes randy agrees with him, but paula have an opposite comment on the other hand. Another thing i noticed is that every time Simon will be the next who will comment on their performance, everyone seems too listen on what he will supposed to say, and end up cheering "boo's". But I think the contestants admire him, even though he said something about his/her performance. And once they hear it, and if it's bad, trust me, the next performance will not be as bad as before... Really love him.. Simon... wooooohooo

I agree with you, and I think the contestants try really hard to impress simon, If he says something nice about thier performance, they seem to get more excited, than if paula or randy would say something nice.

He's like that strict teacher you have in high school that everyone wants to get an approval from.

I like this analogy, It's also the same teacher you look up 10 years later just to say hi, because even though you couldn't stand them at the time, you could never get them out of your head!

I agree with you -- Simon Cowell is probably the main reason I watch the show also. The thing about Simon Cowell is that if you don't like him, you still want to watch. I think sometimes I watch just to hear him tear someone apart when they give a bad audition, or to hear him praise an artist he actually enjoys. When I first started watching American Idol a few years ago I didn't like Simon Cowell, but I have grown to like him.

I wait to see who he is going to say nice things to. Sometimes I can call it, but sometimes he completely throws you for a loop.

I love Simon Cowell he is the reason I watch the show. Randy is alright and Paula too nice to the contestants. I like Simon because he is straight forward and says it like it is. I think I'd stop watching if he left the show. Although I do enjoy watching to see if Paula looks to be drunk or not.

I love how honest he is- He isn't afraid of the fans booing- he could care less- I actually think he likes it when they do disagree and make noise. He likes the part of the villian. I like it to with him. Paul only agrees with everything Randy says-- Randy says Dog too much! Simon is the honest one.. Tell you like it is- He is a big part of why I watch the show too!

I know, I am so sick of the word dog, and have you noticed this season, Randy's new thing is that everything is pitchy, no matter who is singing, or how good they sounded.

Me too. I watch American Idol every night waiting what Simon Cowell will comment to the contestant. Before when I saw the first session of American Idol. I really hate him. When the days goes I watch the American Idol, now I understand him. I really like him. His really honest and true to himself. Just like you said, he speaks his mind. Go Go Simon...

He is a type who can give rude criticism but can't take it when it comes to him.
