I can't believe I am actually going to talk about American Idol for three consecutive days. The only way I would have ever thought that possible is if Randy, Paula, Simon and Ryan all took turns with each other and it was caught on tape.
So, when the week began you had Randy, Kara and Ellen. Now, on Friday, Ellen is gone which I did not see coming at all and Kara was fired, so at least I got one right. So, that would leave Randy as the sole judge. That would be fine but you could guess what he was going to say. First singer would be dawg and awright. The second singer would be pitchy. Third singer would be dawg and awright and so on. Every once in awhile he would stand up or say he just wasn't feelin' it, but it would definitely grow repetitive.
I think I would prefer one judge to what it looks like it is shaping up to be. It looks like for sure that one of the judges is Jennifer Lopez. It makes sense because she has no career, and like Paula can't sing worth a crap so she might as well judge people on their singing. The only difference is that Paula was sweet and friendly and a dingbat and Jennifer is cold and calculating and everyone will be given a complimentary stress test backstage while Marc Anthony haunts the hallways smoking cigarettes and looking for his next “singing partner.”
One report says that Steven Tyler will be joining the judging panel. That would be a good fit, but I am telling you Nigel Lythgoe has a huge ego and loves seeing himself on television. Until I see Steven on that panel, I think Nigel will be the third.
