American Idol Judges Diss The Voice, Weigh in on Male Champions

by at . Comments

Oh, it is on between American Idol and The Voice.

During their panel discussion at yesterday's Television Critics Association winter press tour session, judges Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler left little doubt that they don't care much for NBC's singing competition, which gets underway on February 5.

Three Idol Judges

Among the disses lobbed at The Voice by this trio and/or Fox executives:

“It’s a compliment to Idol. We’re not hiring a lot of people from The Voice to be on our show.” - Fox reality president Mike Darnell on Kelly Clarkson joining The Voice as a mentor

"It was almost like second chance people; it wasn’t some new artist.” - Randy Jackson on The Voice champion Javier Colon having had a contract with Capitol Records

 “This is the show that produces the stars.” - Producer Ken Warwick

“We will never, ever rip of Star Trek like The Voice did with the chairs.” - Jackson

Finally, Randy responded to a question about why four consecutive Idol champions have had a penis, saying: “May the best talent win. If it’s another boy this year that’s the most talented person, that’s who should win... Look at the success of Justin Bieber; there are a lot of girls who vote for boys, that’s just what happens.”

Which singing competition do you like best?

Randy has more eeenripxce in the music business than Jennifer. His opinion matters and J-LO should not be interupting and dis-agreeing argumentively while he is voicing his opinion. I happen to agree with Randy on those he didnt care for. I also was part of the audience that was not moved and quite unhappy with J-Los rudness. Just because she sings doesnt make her opinion matter more. Get off the pedastel J-Lo. Randy knows what hes talking about. If i quit watching the show it would be because of her.

The Voice is much more enjoyable than American Idol. The Voice is new school. American Idol is old school. The Voice viewers and judges vote based on talent not looks.

I like The Voice better. They judge off what they hear, not what they see.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
