I think it's Paula.
I'd heard rumblings last year that she was leaving. Think that's why the other lady was brought in last season, to make the transition easier for the viewers.
I won't miss her too much. I always liked Simon and Randy better.
Kara gives excellent critique and intelligent advice. I'm surprised they waited until now to replace Paula.
Yep, I think that Kara offers a lot more advice and understanding to contestants. I think Paula is making that she "chose" to leave but I think that it's Fox that wanted her to leave...what do you guys think?
I don't know about you all, but I think by now, American Idol has become very passe. I liked it at first, and watched it pretty religiously for the first couple of seasons, but I honestly don't really care for it anymore. Maybe getting rid of Paula will spice up the show a bit. Who knows--maybe I'll even start watching more than just the finales again! ; )
I could really care less personally. I watched Idol for like two or three seasons, whenever carrie underwood won, then quit. I didn't like that Paula cried so much. Maybe this new person will offer something new to the table, but I still won't watch it.
She already does. She was on for the whole of last season. She knows her stuff. She can write. She can really sing.
I haven't watched Idol much over the years, just catching the audition process and seeing the truly woeful embarrass themselves in front of an audience of millions. Someone should slap their parents for giving them false hope. I love when Simon Cowell rips into them.
After that I lose interest. But this time I stuck around. My wife was enjoying it and Kara's addition made the Top 12 (actually 13) part of the show far more intelligent and palatable than previous seasons.
I wish her well. I worry she does have a substance abuse problem and needs to get her life in order. Hopefully she will find other creative outlets in her future.
We'll see if AI is better, worse or the same without Paula.
Four judges was too much last year. Took too long. If she is leaving that will bring it back to three. Much better.
i agree - 4 judges were too many, besides Paula had a way of staying in the middle of her reviews on the talent
I agree, three judges are plenty...plus, it was time for Paula to get help
I liked Paula , but yes she needed help.
Kara is ok ,but you know (gosh that got irritating) she copied everything Randy said...so she's not that much better IMO.
I only watch right near the end ,the hype is nausating and so hyped!
Here's my humble opinion on Idols - IT SUCKS ASS. Big hairy ass! I hate it. Phoniest thing ever to grace TV. I would rather watch a Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy than watch that garbage! All the judges are fake and should all be removed - except maybe for that Englishman, who's at least decent enough not to always wanna kiss the contestants ass every damn time! Another show I hate is Don't Forget The Lyrics! Geez, I puked my guts out when I saw that. I practically block it on my satellite. Who even comes up with these phony ideas! I would rather watch the Kardashians than watch that piece of bull. I know I know, great big exaggeration, that show sucks bigger ass too. But at least you know you're coming out for the phonies!
It would seem that every thread you post the idiotic "I am about to ruin this thread" you are ruining.
So kindly stop the stupidity.
No more discussion from me, I'll just be using the report link.

Why is nobody anywhere I've been online discussing who will become the new Idol? Ok, Scotty or Lauren? who is going to be? my vote goes for Lauren, she's always been my favorite because she reminds me so much of my niece. How about you? Also, why does no one...

If so, I would like to engage in a discussion about this unhealthy addiction of mine.I predicted the who the Top 5 would be Seven weeks ago and I'm basking in it, but I'm also concerned for myself. To understand this type of absurdity must not be healthy at all.

Despite being disappointed by last years outcome, I'm looking forward to AI 9. Although, once it's on, I tend to become obsessed and since I review it, I spend WAY to much time on it! It's wild to think that in a few months I may be totally invested in something that won't change my life a bit!

Who are your favorite contestants from the past seasons of American Idol?
by Susan Keeping 11 years ago
Again...the 2nd best person wins...The finale was great though, all those 70s music guests. Great for people my age And Joe Cocker still has it!I can see Crystal having a great career ahead of her. The other guy? Not so sure.

Well, Stephen Tyler has quit, Jennifer Lopez is probably quitting...and I just heard that Randy Jackson is also out as a judge.Who would you like to see as an American Idol judge?
