    i think i good judge would be piers morgan


    It really doesn't matter who judges. I watched IDOL since the very first season. It used to be about the talent and who America voted for, but the last couple of years have almost been a joke on America. The talent has certainly been there both years but the producers/judges have tried to force a certain winner and it's so obvious by the themes. There is just no way that they are going to try to keep the "Country" singers around. They just don't get it yet that their best publicity over the years has come from country artists --that SELL... The audition shows last too long and are mostly boring. I love all genres of music, and I used to love IDOL but I quit watching the week that Janelle was eliminated. It was like saying goodbye to an old friend. The best current thing IDOL has is Ryan. I will however, contine to watch The Voice, as I have from the beginning, and enjoy the great talent that I see there each and every week. It's so nice to see the coaches playful banter and the compliments that they pay each other, but especially all of the positive feedback that they give the contestants. Most of the music there is current and the show lets America decide when it's down to the finals. If they someday try to force a winner in I will see it and probably look for something else to watch.
