    Re: Part 2 of what do you dislike about American Idol

    The whole show is a joke anymore. It's hard enough to make it in the music business let alone find a star out of no where every year. I think the season Carrie Underwood won was the last one I've watched in its entirety. Let's take a look at the winners:

    Season 1: Kelly Clarkson: has had good success
    Other notables: Justin Guarini: currently competing on CMT's Gone Country 3, Tamayra Gray: had some success acting, most notably on Boston Public
    Season 2: Ruben Studdard: anyone hear of him lately?
    Notables: Clay Aiken: again, see above Josh Gracin: having some success in country music
    Season 3: Fantasia Barrino: big flop and recently in the news that her house is being foreclosed on
    Notables: Diana DeGarmo: competed on Gone Country 1 and supposedly has moved to Nashville to try a career in country. Jennifer Hudson: has gone on to have a successful acting career and has won all 4 major acting awards (Jennifer Hudson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) also performed at this year's super bowl.
    Season 4: Carrie Underwood: no explanation, the biggest star yet to win AI.
    Notables: Bo Bice
    Season 5: Taylor Hicks: his Ford commercial might be his greatest accomplishment sadly
    Notables: Kellie Pickler: having success in country, Chris Daughtry, Bucky Covington: 3 hit singles on the country chart on debut album
    Season 6: Jordin Sparks
    Season 7: David Cook

    Outside of Carrie and Kelly the winners haven't amounted to much while some of the runner ups have gone on the have some pretty good success, especially in country music of all places where AI is trying to find the next pop music star.

    Re: Part 2 of what do you dislike about American Idol

    Simon tells it like it is and I agree with him 99% of the time I would say. Paula and her tearful stand up and applaud the departing contestant and Seacrest being Seacrest is probably my biggest issue with it.

    Re: Part 2 of what do you dislike about American Idol

    I've just started watching this show for the first time (girlfriend makes me lol) Is it supposed to be in HD? The auditions were in HD, but I haven't gotten it in HD since then.
