Worst Things About American Idollukestheman4 It has to be said. American Idol is doing a lot of things wrong and they need to be addressed.
The Top Ten
I want to hear my favorite songs the way it was made, not your stupid original bullcrap. - lukestheman4
You know the "rock"-style covers were not original ("make it your own") but rather past rock covers of songs in the past, right? (e.G. Higher Ground, Billie Jean)
The hottest guy from Season 8 was Adam Lambert. He didn't win (lost out to boring Kris Allen who sounds like so many others) Where is Adam now? Touring the world with his own music and fronting for legendary Queen, making millions of dollars in the process. Where is Kris Allen? At the local pub strumming a few uninteresting chords on the guitar.
Its incredibly unfair! Gosh, the whole point of American idol is to find the person with the best voice. Now we can't have that with girls like this. - boeingrules
Couldn't agree more nothing tics me of more than to see a good singer go home and a boy with long hair and an ok voice go through. IT SUCKS! - the-rate-it-guy
Prime Examples: Kris Allen & Scotty McCreary. Neither of them were stand-out singers, but they managed to win because the girl viewers liked a little eye candy every week and wanted a boy who they think is cute to win, even though they will never meet this boy for him to appreciate it.V 1 Comment
Colton Dixon (Season 11), Haley Reinhart (Season 10), Adam Lambert (Season 8), Laksiha Jones (Season 6), Melinda Doolittle (Season 6), Tamyra Gray (Season 1), Kimberley Locke (Season 2), Jennifer Hudson (Season 3) and many more. It's very unfair, they are some of the best voices on IDOL and they didn't even won! Shame on you, IDOL voters.
Colton Dixon was the most amazing and talented contestant in American Idol history and he only got seventh place. -_- - TheStupidHobo
For some odd reason in Season 10, Haley Reinhart placed 3rd when she was better than both Lauren Alaina AND Scotty McCreary, but even further back, Pia Toscano placed 9th (even the judges were angry with that low of a finish) when she was probably the best singer of the group. And for what? For Paul McDonald and Stefano Langone to go up on stage and suck for a few more weeks? Come on, this just doesn't seem right to me.
I agree with you. Lakisha Jones is an example of those contestants.V 2 Comments
J-Lo and Steven Tyler will probably be good judges, but Paula and Simon were epic. - lukestheman4
Seriously, he is annoying and creates unnecessary drama/nonsense in this godforsaken show.
Doesn't seem fair for the contestents from seasons 1-7 who got voted off for good and contestants from seasons 8-future had a chance. - lukestheman4
They choose the worst people to win because you never hear from them after their season on American idol. There is only three people that made it big time. They are Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Chris Daughtry.
They do have careers but they all suck. What does that say about the rejects?
Sorta Sucks! Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Kris Allen - lassidoggy
I hate your Music, I'm Gonna ignore You thanks A lot! You're not Incredible, you're Not cool adios.V 1 Comment
Only a few contestants can sing very well.
This is where the show finally jumped the shark.
All the contestants, during and after the show, sing songs with nothing hardcore in the lyrics or tone of music, its all boring classical pop junk about relationships. - lukestheman4
In the first six seasons, we had a lot of diverse winners, like Taylor Hicks, Kelly Clarkson, and Carrie Underwood. Now that they started allowing instruments, the winner has since been a while guy with a guitar.
As long as this stream of manufactured music from this insipid show continues, we will never have a daring/remarkable music artist on our hands again.
American Idol ruined music, how's that?
We're not saying we hate the show. The show just has flaws.
The heck is this?
The show has always been full of talented people and a lot of replay value, so just be satisfied instead of complaining about bs that's either minuscule or not true.
That's the point. The bad auditions are suppose to be funny! They aren't very often so it wouldn't kill you to not take it so seriously!
Millions of Americans supporting mediocrity by buying their albums en masse...
