Can't you just feel the excitement in the air?
That show needs to just die already.
Oh boy, this is starting out great. Look, I'm no Idol-worshipper myself. I tried it last season and was repulsed. But I refer you to the following in the TV Show Talk forum rules:
This thread will probably be around for several months, we tend to have these long rambling conversations on this show, so let's start off polite.
Well, to be fair to df, mine was a kind of self-crapping thread comment anyway.
I hope that this season is absolutely amazing but somehow I'm not feeling optimistic. Last season did a lot of damage to the brand, and all the changes this year... well, the jury's still out.
Looking forward to it. My DVR already set. This will be a make or break year for AI.
Yeah and there better be DL links here. A little early for this thread though don't you think?
First show is tomorrow night.
Yes, I would normally not allow the thread so early, but historically we've done it this way and it works.
I probably won't be watching, as I'm still recovering from last year, but I wish you all the best.
It's going to be interesting this year with Jennifer Lopez. I heard she could be a real handful and likes to pick fights.
AI is one of my guilty pleasures.
I'll be there ..
I have watched this show since season 2 and I don't believe I will be watching this year. Last season was brutal and I just don't see it getting any better.
Well I stopped watching last year about 2/3's of the way into it but I'll give it another shot this year since there are so many changes.
I will say I am going to miss Simon thought. He was the only judge that usually told it as it was. I hate the cheer-leading these judges do, they aren't there to support the contestants, they are there to give feedback to the singers. Quit blowing smoke up their behinds.

5 minutes in and this is gonna be different.
Yea, I loved it. Totally different this year. Not the same old Simon crap.
That was a great line.
It really shows how negative that show was with Simon. Lot more fun so far.
Steven Tyler was great. He was funny, a little crude sometimes, and honest with the contestants. It seems like Randy kind of caves to Tyler and Lopez. It almost seems like all 3 are more lenient than past panels.
Never heard the word Karaoke, or self-indulgent...I wonder if they'll have guest judges?
50 people made it through (If I heard right) .. Maybe the producers decided to send more singers through this time around than knuckleheads. It's possible it was a "too many" situation early on, but they really may be looking at this year differently and want to get the best product on the stage for the final 10 or 12 or 14 (whatever they come up with)
Doug, you can start a new thread if you want. This one started out off on the wrong foot (my fault).
I'll be watching the first show soon to see what the changes have brought/wrought.
Last year was such a dud. I was doing a crossword puzzle the other day and came across a clue with some of the letters already filled in from other words. The clue was 2010 American Idol Winner. I had something like...
__ E __ D__ __ Y __ E
...and I still couldn't for the life of me figure out who it could be. That's how swiftly last year's winner passed from memory (and believe me I'm not bad at crossword puzzles)
