    It's hard to believe that Season 12 is starting tomorrow night, it sure doesn't seem like the show has been on that long.

    Alright Alright!
    I'll be honest....
    I am not sure I would be watching this season if my partner was not pushing for it.
    He loves trash TV. Honey Boo Boo / Shahs of Hollywood / Snookie........ all of it.
    I really don't. And I have been really concerned coming into this season that Minaje (or what ever shes called) is going to just bring the whole thing to a Trash Tv level.
    I mean I really don't like her being there at all.
    But alas, I am stuck watching it.
    So I pray against hope, that it is going to be about contestants and finding a really great American Idol.

    Actually, I've been watching all the previews (a new one was released yesterday) and I'm super excited for Minaj on the show. Based on what I've seen, she's gonna breath new life into this dying show. WOO.

    Everything that I have seen from people in the media who have seen the first two shows love Nikki and say that she is great.

    Yea, MJ did a whole post from industry folk who were watching it, saying Nicki was great. I'm hoping she's honest with the contestants. That's something that drove me crazy the past few years. The judges kept telling everyone they were great...that's boring. At least Nicki will be entertaining. lol

    Ok, so there is one bright side that I can agree with.
    I am not the least bit interested in hearing the judges tell every person who stands at that mic that they are great!
    IF Nik can come real with some of this, than I will at least not be "yelling" at the screen like I did so much last year.

    And I have been paying attention to the "change" in positioning that they have taken in "promoting" the show. They seem to have completely changed gears in the way they are selling her.
    and just cause she can "play" nice, doesn't mean she is.
    What I did see was who she really is. And I am not a fan of mean people who yell obscenities at innocent bystanders who are just trying to do their jobs.
    So I am still reserved.........

    I will definitely be watching, but I'm reserving judgement on the new panel until the live shows get underway. Steven and JLo showed great promise in the audition shows, yet couldn't deliver under the pressure of live television. I hope that Nicki, Mariah and Keith fare a bit better. Keith is a really knowledgable, well spoken individual, so I have high hopes for his critiques. For all the talk about Nicki, I have high hopes for her as well. I'm honestly not expecting much from Mariah nor Randy. Randy has been useless the last few seasons with his unfair critiques.

    I think that if they could have found someone else who is a name producer he would have been gone.

    I guess Jimmy wouldn't look so smart if he had to critique immediately after the performance. lol.

    I just hope that the judges comments don't take too long with four of them.

    Agreed.
    I suspect the audition rounds to be alot of hi-jinx and shinanigans with the judges.

    Keith is the best of the new judges-- hands down. lol Love him already and it just got going.

    Mariah is doing well to be fair. Nikki is sort of out there but she gave a few good comments. The bickering gets annoying, but I do like this panel so far.

    Should be a good year!

    Feels good that Idol is back!

    I just tuned in via an online stream because my stupid tv isn't working I guess I will watch the first 50 minutes I missed tomorrow somewhere but this live stream is good quality so I'm ok for now. All I saw so far was the Jessica guitar girl they said no to because she isn't ready.

    I was really impressed with the show. It was a good mix of judges bickering, joke contestants, sob stories and successful auditions. I'm glad they didn't feel they had to bring back the mean spiritness (that's probably not a word) to get the ratings. I agree with Tee, Keith is the best judge however I'm kind of biased. lol.

    I thought for sure that Keith would be very insightful which he was and I was surprised at how insightful that Nikki is, all of that might change when the live show starts but I liked what I seen tonight.
