TV show description:
A pop singing competition reality show that has become phenomenally popular.

Contestants (ages 16 to 29) are found via nationwide open auditions. The number of contestants is narrowed down, through subsequent single and group auditions, and are judged by people like record producers Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson, and singing-star Paula Abdul.

In the final weeks of the competition, the judges critique performances but only the most popular singers (determined by audience votes) stay in the competition. At the culmination of the season, the most popular singer is named “American Idol.”

The series is hosted by Ryan Seacrest.

We all know that black people can sing, but once you run across a white person that has rapsiness in their voice, the world has to go crazy. Bernell should have never gone home and is shame on the judges that allowed it, this show needs to be gone because too many artists have let the talent go. I never realized the money was that important to turn your back on real talent, hope you all go away.

Used to watch it – used to look it. I think it is time for it to go. I dislike most reality shows anyway. There are afew worth watching but not this one. It has gotten to be too much drama.

I do like American Idol and there are not many reality things that I like. This gives talented hopefuls a shot at what they desire most in the world, a singing career, and the opportunity to hear the truth from true experts in the field of entertainment. Plus, we the audience, get to hear some amazing singers. It is a competition based on the individual’s own talent, not some arbitrary choice made by some horny man who may look good but has no soul or integrity. The Bachelor -now, that is a show that is worth replacing.
