  • Hunter Riley
    Hunter Riley 5 days ago +1

    The complete downfall of American Idol began when they stopped showing the horrible singers and started that path of giving full bio's of singers, even before they opened their mouths...basically when they stopped being real...and of course when Simon left and they brought in the bitch fighting "girls"... The reboot should have NEVER HAPPENED

  • Cate D

    Ohhhhhhhhh Merde!!!! #5 oh honey...oh I know you wanted get on T.V. but come on! Ten years of training in sounding like total sh&%! Wow! That was absolutely horrible and I hope that it was fake and just made up for the show! Finally, number 1 I think was just trying to get on t.v. by making a fool of himself. I am sorry if any of these people actually think they can sing.

    I’m disappointed with the way the judges reacted to the first three auditions in this video. honestly, each person had a good voice - the range, the power, the vibrato - each had a genuinely good voice - but they obviously weren’t 100% where they needed to be. I think with some strong vocal coaching over a few years, they could be very good singers. but the judges always come down so hard on them - and send them out with a negative reaction instead of encouraging them to find help with their voice. clearly these people love to sing and to hear that they sounded bad and there’s no hope for them has got to be a big discouragement. hopefully they didn’t give up on their dreams and were able to find a good teacher.

    I HATE THIS SHOW. They just embarrass people and a lot of them are really nice and nervous and just want to sing. Just b/c someone is a bad singer doesn't mean they should be humiliated and laughed at on tv by smug judges and producers making this tv show millions of dollars and while they are the ones really making the show exist and they don't get paid a cent. (I'm a singer btw, a good one, and I know what it's like to be scared at your first audition and blow it, that shit can scar you). but the guy at the end holy shit

      +Cate D As I said though, just because they may be delusional and can't sing doesn't mean they should be exploited for profit and ratings and made fun of by these even more smug judges (and sometimes they can sing but just have a bad audition and they get humiliated as well). But yeah I wonder if a lot of the bad auditions are faked too. I've heard stories about how fake American Idol was by people that have worked on the show before and there are videos on youtube about it too, about how they get signals from the producers off screen and they look over to them as to whether or not a singer gets accepted or not.

    • Cate D
      Cate D 5 days ago

      Oh come on! Did you see how smug that first woman was?! She cannot sing, like, at all. And how long had the show been on for at this point? Everyone and their Mom knew what Simon was like at this point. I of course wouldn't be surprised if some of the "bad auditions" were faked, and I commented above that I actually hope some of them were fake because if these people actually think they are good? And I am not trying to be mean or cruel saying that, it is just the truth.
