Here we are at the end of another year of American Idol.

Personally I am glad it is over.  This has been a very bad season for the show.  This is especially true if you were a guy.

Week after week, the guys got knocked out of the competition until there was nothing but 5 girls remaining.  Was this a setup or was it just coincidence?  My belief is that people purposely voted all the guys out just because they were just no good at all.  The only exception to this was Curtis who I believed could have won it all.  Surprisingly, he was the first one to go.  However, I found it ironic that Nicki Minaj didn’t hear his performance and didn’t show up until the second person performed.  Coincidence or purposely done—hard to tell what the truth really is.  No matter what it was still strange nonetheless.

After the guys were gone, we saw other better girls like Janelle and Angie exit leaving us with Kree and Candice.  So who will win?  My money is on Kree winning it all, but it will be very close no matter what.

The next big question is who will be next year’s judges.  Randy is already got his bags packed to leave and the others will probably get their walking papers soon (hopefully).

Here is who I think should be considered judges:

  • Kelly Clarkson – Who better than the original idol being a judge?  A perfect fit as far as I am concerned.
  • Pink – Her songs are used regularly on the show so why not put her in a chair?
  • Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus — A daddy/daughter reunion from two different genres would certainly shake things up.
  • Harry Connick Jr. — He has been a mentor several times so it’s time for a chair.
  • Carly Rae Jepsen – She is hot and cute and I wouldn’t mind looking at her every week.  Who cares if she is Canadian?
  • Any Disney female star – It’s worked on “Dancing with the Stars” and “X Factor” so why no this show?

 

And now for those who should never be a judge:

  • Elton John – Too much British.  Too much diva.  Just too much.
  • Ke$ha – Too much glitter everywhere, but I still love her.  Just leave the glitter at home please.
  • Any former judge from Idol – Please no rejects from years past.
  • Anybody NOT in the music business – On the road judges have seen some interesting choices none of whom would know enough about music to be a real judge for the show.

 

I believe wholeheartedly that there should not be an unlucky 13th season to Idol as paranoia would settle in on everyone.  Let’s end it now at an even dozen and call it a wrap.

 

Lastly, I must comment on the season-long building of Carly Rae Jepsen’s song of “Take a Picture”.  It was hard to understand without closed-captioning turned on and overall was a mess.  This should be a lesson:  NEVER LET THE PUBLIC WRITE A SONG EVER!!  My ears and eyes are still bleeding over that song.  Certainly not her best work.

 

Seacrest out and done…
