The auditions are the best! I still watch it, but agree that the quality of the show has been in steady decline

I watched every single season after the first, but I’m going to try and resist this year. Without Simon I think the show’s pretty much dead. The quality of the singers were lame last two years anyway. Besides I can’t stand Jennifer Lopez!

I was talking about this with my Fiance today.  I never really watched the show until a few seasons ago, and last season wasn’t all that great…. I think the judges started looking too much for ‘unique’ people and didn’t get the genuinely good singers out there.  I actually think without simon, the show might get a needed facelift.  I like his honesty, but he is such a stereotype, I kindof got sick of it.  I’m gonna give it a go with the new judges and see how it is this year.  I think it might get back to the way it was with just good singers.

I normally don’t, but I know someone whose relative is going to be one it, so I will probably tune in for a little while.

I’m anxious to see what J Lo and S. Tyler are like this season. It will sure be different without Simon!  I generally only watch the auditions, though.

I was a die hard AI fan from almost day one, and stayed with the show solidly through the 6th season.   Die hard as in my boyfriend at the time and a couple other friends and I would make pools/bets from the initial auditions on who would make the top 10 and stuff like that.  I was pretty decent at it too…they still tease me/don’t understand how I picked Taylor Hicks as the winner from his initial audition. (Lame, I know…)

After the 6th season I feel the “quality” really went downhill – I really lost interest.  I felt the contestants weren’t as good, it got boring/ridiculous, and I gradually stopped watching all together. 

Simon really was the best part of the show for me (along with Paula being CRAZY!) but I have to admit I am very curious to see what the new judges bring (I love Aerosmith).  I’m also sort of curious to see about the reported changes that are being made to the show.

I’m going to give it a try this year, at least for a little bit.

the auditions are soo funny, but now its edited in such a way that its just so much of ryan seacrest talkin on and on about the contestants and less of the actual fun itself. They spend like 20 mins tellin us the story of one person and then they fly through the rest. the 1st few seasons were the best

I have it season passed from last season (as I discovered yesterday when asking what my Fiance was groaning about), so I’ll probably watch a couple episodes out of sheer curiosity.

I’ll admit, I’ve watched pretty much every season (I missed a couple in the early years.)  I tell myself every year I’m not going to watch, then I inevitably get sucked in again.

I’m weak. 🙁
