The past couple of seasons I have only watched the audition portion and I've enjoyed it but when it gets down to the actual show I tune out. I enjoy the Rockstar series about 10 times more than Idol - far more talent there.

Hopefully they will have more of those "singers" who are auditioning solely for "entertainment value."


One of my favorites from last year was the girl with the cell phone hanging out of her pocket whose mother was called into the audition room who dressed and acted like her daughter.

I like AI, but I agree, some of the other music talent shows are a little better. Although I'm not a country fan, Nashville Start takes the cake when talking overall talent (playing instruments, singing, writing their own material, etc.). I'm not saying those on AI can't do all the above, but due to the 'type' of show, the producers won't allow them go show anything else off other than their voice and looks, so I have no way of knowing like I do with Rockstar and Nashville Star.

I disagree...some of the `rock singer's in the last one were horrible and wayy off key..Judges still would say they "were great!"

Carrie was better than anyone on the last NS..can't judge any other NS finalists though.

In any other medium, she would have been bounced out on her ear long ago: showing up drunk or stoned on air and hitting on young, male contestants (wonder how much it took to buy that guy off?). But the producers of AI have such a gold mine going, they're not going to do anything to rock the boat, and that includes shaking up the "talent". Pretty sad, actually.

I take it you are not a Country music fan then? Have you seen what she has done since?
