    Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly posed a suggestion last week how about just edinng the show? With the lackluster season that just finished, I'm not totally opposed to this idea. I know Fox would probably never even consider it given how big a cash cow AI seems to be but as a viewer, the series has just deteriorated season after season in the past 3 years. With Simon gone, who cares, really?!


    it's over for American Idol might as well ditch it and start with something else and //so you think you can dance is not classier - idol has been ok the best part is the bloopers and those who audition and can't sing - need to have a show like that more like americas funniest video but singing / maybe fsv funniest singing videos - hay hollywood there's a new show for you // but brett michels would be great as a judge


    JLO as a judge on Idol? kind of a step down for her; I could more see her as a judge on So You Think You Can Dance as it is a classier show. Really, Jennifer, I love you but it's not enough to make me watch Idull again. Face it; the show has reached its zenith; go out in semi-glory before it's too late.


    I'm thrilled that J. Lo will be one of the judges. She's funny and will lend humor to the show, knows her music and she's gorgeous!!!

    I have not been watching AI because of Adam Lambert - to me he was the ultimate Idol and really rallied for him. Still keeping up with him as he becomes more and more famous here and in other countries. But now that Jennifer Lopez will be one of the judges I'll probably start watching it again just to see her.


    Would love to see Bret Michaels...he has the knowledge, the personality, and the good looks to nmake me watch.Another guy is Steve perry of Journey.He really knows his stuff too and his fans would love to see him anywhere.I like Jo Lo but not a s a judge please.They should not have gotten rid of Kara.Ellen who is one of the funniest women on the planet and has a great love of music was not hard hearted enough for this show.Having said all that I think idol has run it's course....without Simon it is doomed Love him or hate him,i'll be bored without him on no matter how good the talent is.Who has Simon ever said should replace him?i'm so curious!!!!


    wont watch idol so stupid some of the people they audition


    I like Kara so I am sad she is gone. She had the songwriter background. I never thought Ellen had any credibility on the show. They need another producer to fill Simon's position. I probably will not watch the show much after this new panel of judges take over. The last 2 seasons have been very weak anyway


    You're joking, right? Steven Tyler is going to be on a mediocre at best show? So the rumours that he isn't going to sing with Aerosmith are because he wants to be an Idol judge? Right. Can't wait...


    Either way, with Simon gone I think the show's ratings will go down. No matter who else will take the judges' place. I think Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are good picks because they know a lot about music and have been in the music industry for so long. Ellen was nice and funny but, you gotta admit, her place is on the Ellen show (which I like haha). She doesn't strike me as someone who knows a lot about music... she probably just did it because it meant more money and she was interested in it. I knew Ellen wouldn't last on the show, even though I like her. And Kara... idk I'm surprised she's gone, but not many people liked her. I'll still watch the show though - gotta love Randy! I love American Idol, I'll never sop loving it. I'll also be watching X-Factor :D


    They jumped the shark.
