For those of you who watched IDOL this evening,were you shocked on who the final ten were?,and then even more shocked on who were picked for the three wild card spots? It was bad enough that two of the best female singers didn't make the top then,and then to add insult to injury,Randy,Jenifer&Steve chose the two black female singers of whom were the least impressive of the six wild card contestants. It was so obvious that the judges were more concerned that they would of been declared racists if they didn't have at least one black female singer amongst the final 12. This will likely come back to haunt them. Let's just wait and see who gets eliminated first.
I don’t have a television and don’t see American Idol, but you must not have received the memo from Eric Holder-up: America is a Chocolate Country of “My People.” Any other outcome is unacceptable.
I missed most of the show tonight.
I did see most of the audition shows.
I am surprised that I do like the additions of Steven Tyler and even what’s her name,,,,Jennifer Lopez. I am sure not a fan of hers musically although a couple movies with her in it were not horrible. I couldn’t even name 2 of her “hit songs”. I like Tyler more now that I’ve seen him. I always loved old Aerosmith songs. Not so much the newer stuff. He’s funny, and entertaining on the show.
I really thought getting rid of Simon would kill the show but, I like it fine without him. I liked his honesty.
Anywho, will watch the show next week and see if I find anyone who stands out as a winner.
PS- if there is such a thing as a FR American Idol ping list and you own it, please add me.
I was just totally disgusted. this season we had more than enough great singers. especially with the girls. why didn’t they just pick the best 12 singers,not 6 and 6..just the best 12. you could of easily had 8 girls and 4 dudes. One of the guys chosen for the top ten just didn’t belong there. Something Smells !!!
I thought they ended up with a pretty good demographic mix that represents the American population.
The wild cards picks won’t go far, though, as they were mostly chosen in a sympathy move by the judges, which reflected their own ethnic preferences. One Hispanic; one black; and one multi-ethnic.
Your kidding right? FReepers do not waste their time on this liberal crap.
you know, you could of had another josh groban and charlotte church in the mix,up against two average black&hispanic girls.and lets say they already picked 12 white singers,and needed to add two wild card picks(like tonight),,what do u think the judges would have done?

Sort of like affirmative action and not talent?
maybe they chose the two black girls at the end because Obama and his Husband Michelle were watching?
They are all talented and gutsy. Real Americans pursuing their American Dream.
I don’t get this thread. ???
Don’t sugar coat it kid, give it to us straight up.
I predicted the wild card picks. My wife poo pooed me - until it happened. Goodbye American Idol.
One Josh Groban is enough, and one Charlotte Church is more than enough.
I think you have another pingee. lol
My mother moved in with us on Sunday after my dad passed away in December. It’s rare I’m on FR these days, really rare. :( I miss you guys on the AI thread. Just came across this poster and thought I’d ping you.
I have AI on my DVR since 2/10, I’ll NEVER catch up!
Could you please add me to your American Idol ping list?
Granted they have a strong crop this year, but I was shocked.
for those of you who watched, can we assume that Casey will be in the final two? and that 15 year old Asian Girl THIA is already putting the other 6 or 7 girls to shame!(not that the other 6 or 7 can’t sing,but Thia just blows them away!!!)
