No! Badness!

I don't like that Simon man. He is a big meanie and makes all the singing people cry. That is bad. And I don't think that he can sing at all. Why does not somebody hit him and make him cry? Bastard man!

Very pointless show, with scripted drama, cheesy liners (how many "after the break"s and "dawg"s do we need?), cheesy music/band, forgettable singers (I mean, name the last 5 winners-without researching), and not even Mariah Carey can save this show.

Looking back, you know that this is a pointless television program when the most entertaining singers (for a lack of better term) are William Hung and Sanjaya, and the rest of the contestants are either dire or boring. How would music be without American Idol and Simon Cowell?

Favorite American Idol Performances (1 tv items)

"#50 David Cook - Billie Jean http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_aiawC-9aM Let's start the list off with a great performance of one of my favorite songs of all time. It took me a really long time to come around to this one. Billie Jean is easily my favorite Michael Jackson song, and easily in my Top 10 songs of all time, so to hear someone sing such a different version of it really threw me off at first. #49 Siobhan Magnus - Think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYyOgLqUyvE Siobhan was a great"

" Day 06 - A show you hate I'm using American Idol to represent all reality shows because I hate them all with the heat of a thousand suns - they are ruining Television - Idol is particularly loathsome for butchering some of my favorite songs."

The Worst TV Shows of 2010 (14 tv items)

"Worst Casting Choices: American Idol Season 9 was wrong for a number of reasons. On stage, the decision to bring in Tim Urban as an alternate proved disastrous as the untalented bangs-enthusiast delivered awful performances and still made it to the top 7. However, there were equally bad casting choices at the judges’ table, with the addition of Ellen DeGeneres, a perfectly funny lady who’s lack of musical knowledge only served to reinforce the notion that this is not a singing competition a"

The Biggest TV Disappointment of 2010 (18 tv items)

"Simon's Sendoff on "American Idol": Simon was always our favorite part of this train wreck of a show, so we expected a big, fabulous sendoff for the cranky judge. Instead, Paula Abdul tried to hijack the night by ostensibly talking about how much she loved Simon, but then unleashed the crazy with some random "jokes" about Simon knocking her up. Source: TWoP"

What is their appeal? (TV) (15 tv items)

"And all of its foreign off-shoots. Come on, people. This is just common sense. If you got the best of the nation on the first season, then the second season would just be the rejects. The third would be the rejects of the rejects. The fourth, the rejects of the rejects or the rejects...you get the picture. Do we have to get William Shatner up their crooning some Lady Gaga before you recognize that the show has gone to hell. It was a bad idea in the first place! "

"A Massively Multiplayer On-air W/CC, American Idol is a tour for the best singer in America aided by three judges and the nation's ability to decide who's good and who isn't. Season-by-season complaints are of good singers being booted off and of bad ones staying. Of the three judges one is generally positive, one is generally negative, and the other's disposition depends on whether he did his yoga that afternoon."
