American Idol ratings have been on a free fall this season and bloggers seem to be rushing to the rescue of Nikki Mirage. Nikki is the sole reason Idol has fallen off it's perch and Idol producers should cut their losses and fire her mid season. She is disruptive, knows nothing about music and singing and is always seeking ways to bring attention to herself. Her "critiques" are long, rambling and totally meaningless. She continually insults a music industry icon Jimmy Ivene and frankly I am surprised he hasn't called her on it. American Idol; Do You Want To Survive??? Cut the cancer from your show and get rid of Nikki Mirage.

I used to be an avid fan of American Idol, hardly missing any of the shows including the replays because I loved the chemistry among the judges, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson. Nowadays, I hardly watch Idol not because of Nikki. I simply find it uninteresting without the previous magic.

OMG you are so right! I watched only three shows this season and couldn't take Nikki Minja for another minute. I have watched every year from the beginning. I just think she does not have the time in the business to be a judge for anyone. Her voice alone is like chalk on a blackboard. The producers screwed up with giving her this gig and if they want to bring it back to the standards it was, they need to get rid of her and fast. I'm not even missing it at all because it's just not as good as last year and the years before.

aside from Nikki who had been annoying by far, the 5 years in a row "white guy with guitar" winner trend in the last also hurts the show. It alienated adult and male audience because Teenage girls keeps on voting for their "Prince charming" The show became prdictable because the same person kept on winning.Then the last few winners ends up as either one hit wonders,no hit wonders and sophomore slumps. Anyway all TV shows dropped ratings because there are more Tv networks now,giving the audience a more diverse choice. around the early 2000's a show with 9 million audience is considered a flop, now its considered a hit. I think Idol needs to have " allstar season" bring back the familiar and memorable contestants who didnt win and give the a second chance to win idol. It will bring back some of the alienated fan base. Idol is the only decade old reality show that didnt have an allstar season.

I think Nikki just plays it safe much of the time, saying only nice things about the singers. The judges lack someone like Simon whose criticisms were honest although at times brutal. However, that's how they get top ratings.

I haven't watched American Idol since the first two times it was on. It's just not the same any more. From what I've heard Nikki needs to go.

well said nicli being a judge with all the changes is a good reason as to why the show lost all the ratings they had just last year. yes they definitely just need to forget it and let her go now. did you see where she told those 3 to get off the stage?? yes they really werent that good but still she was being way to harsh and over the limit there. as far as Jimmy goes she shouldnt have done that and it was wrong. she should have been kicked off right then. honestly there are many times she should hacve just been sent home. and your right most of the time she tries to take the spotlight so to speak and that isnt what a judge is all about!

I quit watching it (I only watched one season, last season when that talentless Flip Flip won) because they don't do anything but sing and blah blah blah. Deandre (sp) was from San Jose, CA and we saw him once while out and about, other than that I don't care for the show. I can't stand Nikki "Mirage" as you call her, she is a worthless waste of skin, she knows nothing, says even less and should be judging a nasty foot competition. I will never watch American Idiot again, I'll just wait for the people who get voted off to make better music than the dolts who win.

I have not seen the show this season, but someone special to me said they feel the same way about her. They are not a fan of hers either...Makes me curious enough to want to see what all of the talk is about!

Maybe because they are trying something new on the show but it did not work out. Its up to the producers and staff to decide on what to do on it. Hopefully they can bring it back the way it used to be in the ratings.

I think american idol has , also fallen because of the changes in the way the show is. I want it back to the old way. The way we votes, the way people were kicked off. its all wrong this season.
