Ugh Nicki Minaj is terrible. I especially hate when she starts rapping in a "british accent" in super bass. >:(

I don't really like her either, I find her insufferable and I'm not really a fan of her music... but as an Idol judge I just... I can't. She's barely a musician.

Then again, I guess Ellen DeGeneres wasn't a musician either...

I forgot Ellen was a judge

Well at the very least, Ellen was funny. Perhaps she was a judge because she uh knows about pop culture/the industry?

At the very least, I can see Nicki Minaj being slightly better than Kara DioGuardi... that woman was insufferable.

    I don't mind Nicki Minaj at all. She's definitely not all that great a rapper but... loads of people aren't at all great at what they do and they don't get so much flack for it. Some people who are nothing short of terrible, which I don't really think Nicki is, at what they do are really popular tbh. *shrug*

    Agreed! She seems so... annoying ;; She seems to think she's much better than she is and it's kinda irritating to watch :x But I just change the channel and it's fine :D

    I actually like Nicki Minaj. I wouldn't go out and buy her CD or buy a ticket to her concert, but if I hear her on the radio I don't change the station. The lastest song by her I've really liked was "Beez in the trap".

      My housemate thought Nicki Minaj was a) a British radio presenter and b) a man until last week. He's not so unhip and down wif da kidz to be completely oblivious to such stuff, which made it all the more hilarious when I found out last week!

      Oh, and Monster/Till The World End Remix >>>>> anything else she's done. Still kinda weird that she's an AI judge, but eh.

      Mariah Carey does add a huge dose of legitimacy, but overall it's a huge downgrade from what it was.

        I'll point you to the title of this thread for my opinion on the subject.

        I know that it still gets loads of viewers, but does it still have the same zeitgeist-y impact that it did in its heyday? I genuinely don't know, as it's been absolutely ages since I've watched it.

        Was American Idol ever relevant?

        I never got why it was always people singing (from what little I saw of it) and never anyone who had, say, any other musical or entertainment skills?

        X Factor has surpassed American Idol as far as TV show goes. Star quality? In the US, not yet, but it's only a matter of time. C:

        I can't get into X Factor. The whole format to me is nonsense. I liked the Idol series' better because it was just a much simpler, straightforward singing competition. They didn't need to complicate it by going with that whole 'mentors' and 'teams' nonsense.

        I don't really watch any of them anymore and haven't for ages, but that's my take on it. I much prefer Idol.

        I haven't watched American Idol since Kris Allen's season. I don't remember what season that was, but I'll be watching American Idol this time just to see a) Mariah Carey's diva antics and b) What Nicki Minaj has to say. I'm interested in how she'll do, Nicki Minaj, because I don't view her to be a very talented vocalist. I don't particularly like her, but I listen to her music every now and then because she has a lot of ear worms and her music is just fun. Sometimes that's all I want in my music, and I don't particularly take her very seriously.

        I imagine it's only a couple of years, maybe three, until Idol gets cancelled, regardless of the star power they're pulling in. Unless Mariah & Nicki (lets be honest, like three people from Nashville or something will watch Idol for Keith Urban) prove to be some kind of ratings dream team the show hasn't seen since the heyday of Simon and Drunk Paula, Idol will finally be off the air, something that I think should have happened to years ago tbh. Besides, they can't exactly compare with the likes of Britney Spears & Demi Lovato who currently doing quite well as judges on X Factor. Simon knew when to jump the sinking ship; the rest don't.

        The auditions were the best, but I HATED when they'd do a "sob story" and focus on one person for the ENTIRE last 15 minutes of the episode. Not trying to be harsh, but: i get that your life is sad and you are an awesome person, but this is a singing competition not a whose life is the saddest competition.

        Fun fact: my aunt's boss's daughter is on this season of Australian X Factor (I know, right? Such a claim to fame) and she didn't have a sob story so they made her invent one for the show.

        Her sob story was that she didn't have a sob story. So tragic.

        I hate seeing people's sob stories (they make me sad) unless it's showing them actually making it to something important, like getting to the Olympics or hearing about J. K. Rowling making it big after struggling. "Appearing on American Idol" isn't gonna tip the scales enough and I'll be left feeling sad.

        I don't know that I'd even consider JK Rowling's story a 'sob story'. Her parents died while she was an adult and she happened to find herself in a situation where she was terribly, terribly poor. Usually sob stories are like "I have cancer and so does my dog, but my husband left me and singing is how I get through the day" or "my husband is in Iraq and I'm raising his four children because I couldn't keep it in my pants. He hasn't even met the youngest, Bessy"

        Then again I guess hers would be a sob story... maybe it's just the matter-of-fact way she tells it that makes it seem otherwise lol

        Don't you just love how realistic reality tv is? Even when it's fake, they do such a good job of making everyone's lives/lifestyles SO believable. (like Snooki's, or the real housewives)

        I watched the last Season of Survivor because we happened to turn it on late one night and then we got hooked... because trash TV is actually surprisingly addictive.

        But no, it's not real.

          I have never even watched survivor. It is like.. they are starving and then there's a cameraman right there with a bag of chips or something. I don't get the concept.

          I think it's some kind of suspension of belief thing. There isn't really a camera. They really are struggling for survival. And it's... entertaining?
