I still love American Idol but it doesn’t seem to produce stars as it once did.

Idol doesn't know how to hawk merch... That's it that's the opinion... lmao :P

 

 

It's best merch get was probably the few times AI toys were made for a McDonald's happy meal! :wub:

I hope there is NO clear frontrunner for season 18... :ph34r:

 

 

It get's a little redundant when you can predict the winner from their audition... :|

American Idol wasn't able to get Nick Jonas as a judge, but The Voice was able to get him as a coach. The Voice is better than American Idol right now for that reason alone. He also would have made a better American Idol judge than Miss Katy tries too hard Perry.

Disagree, and you couldn't pay me enough money to sit through an episode of The Voice.

Idols biggest mistake was losing the bidding war for Kelly Clarkson to The Voice - The Voice ended up paying Clarkson $560,000 per episode = $30 million per year.  Kelly Clarkson's career is the greatest testament to the value of an American Idol win - and ABC blew it.

The FOX Network and NBC network are way bigger and more successful than the ABC Network. That's why the ABC Network had no chance at getting Kelly Clarkson as a judge on American Idol. Maybe if they didn't spend a majority of American Idol's budget getting Katy Perry to be a judge and keeping her as one, then they might have gotten Kelly Clarkson to judge American Idol. Katy Perry is the worst judge American Idol has ever had and that's a fact that a lot of people agree with.

THIS. So much this! ❤️

 

 

By the way... AI15's Avalon Young is underrated and deserved to go farther in the competition... ;)

 

 

P.S. Trent Harmon going the country route is one of AI's biggest disappointments for me...

Avalon was super good. One of the most studio ready contestants we’ve ever seen. I liked her and Sonika better than Trent and Laporsha.

I disagree. I like Katy as a judge, and I think Kelly would have been a good judge too but I'm not sad she's at The Voice.
