It’s a little early for an “official” thread, but there’s already a controversy with Season 15; one of the contestants who got a Golden Ticket may have a current recording contract.
The real story here seems to be, if you look at the “camera 3” shot in the second photo, you will notice that San Francisco is in the distant background; in fact, the scenery shots seem to be taken from an area that doesn’t have any buildings.October 12, 2015 at 3:39 pm #555954
The one thing about Idol is that its always been consisant, and i have no doubts it will end strongly and will be missed. Just pray to a god that fox dont bring back x factorOctober 12, 2015 at 3:44 pm #555955
I love American Idol, always have and always will. I think it is one of the best shows of any kind ever on television. It was amazing when it was really good, and I think it was one of the few shows that absolutely anyone can enjoy at any age. It launced the careers of more superstars than I can count. Many more than The Voice ever has. What an amazing run.
I would’ve absolutely loved if they brought back the original judging panel for the final season, or at least Simon, but no, we are stuck with J-Lo, Harry and Keith. Well, at least two outta three of them aren’t bad.
I’ve come so far, I might as well finish up the 15th season. My dreams of auditioning one day will never come to fruition (I live in Canada and I can’t sing worth crap, so fat chance anyways), but I will always love this show, even if some of the seasons have really gone to pot.
The only thing I wish is that they would maybe bring it back for like a “where-are-they-now” special, or at least a retrospective special at the end of it all, and maybe an “American Idol: Redemption” series for the fan favourite contestants who made it to the Top 24 but not the Top 12. I would pay good money to see that!

There’s a reason this is Idol’s last season, and the possibility of it being replaced with The X Factor isn’t it.January 6, 2016 at 4:41 am #555958

The end of an era begins TONIGHT! Sniff, sniff.
According to the press releases, tonight’s episode features Denver and Atlanta, and tommorow’s will have Little Rock and San Francisco. (The only other city is Philadelphia, although there is also the “bus tour”.)January 6, 2016 at 7:06 pm #555960
It’s the beginning of the end. First episode was pretty good. I’ll give my thoughts on the singers who auditioned later on.

Loved all of the people that went through except for the one with the bass or whatever that was and the Jphnny cash sound-alike.January 7, 2016 at 7:38 am #555962
Honey, the American Idol final season premiere was a total snoozefest. Yawn!
The talent is very limited already. The guy with the guitar and the girl who sang James Brown tore it up.

Clay Aiken slams ‘boring’ American Idol judges:January 7, 2016 at 3:48 pm #555964
I would be lying if I said I didn’t understand what Clay was coming from, but I still say it’s good. I am an Idol idiot (as I call it) and I always will be. Besides, cut it some slack, dude. It’s the show’s final year. But Clay is still somewhat in the right.

Another boring episode of Idol.January 9, 2016 at 3:54 pm #555966
Last episode was a little more boring, I’ll admit, but some really great talent was showcased. Brandyn Burnette (I think that was his name) is an early favourite of mine!
