What Would Make "American Idol" Better?

What Would Make "American Idol" Better?

"American Idol" is still crushing everything on TV, and yet people are starting to grumble that this season just isn't very good. Does "Idol" need to be fixed? And if so, what would return it to its former glory?

I always kind of wanted to vote people OFF instead of voting FOR people. I want nothing more than to vote against either Sanjaya or Haley.

A) Better singers, B) Do catagories like they did last night instead of having them sing Diana Ross (seriously??), C) Get rid of Paula's drunk a$$, and D) Get rid of Seacrest. The end. Oh yeah... not a fan of Randy anymore either!

Just get better singers for sure. And let the boys and girls compete together right from the top 24, that way we don't get stuck with some crappy singers only because there is a quota. Last year the girls were bad, this year the boys are. There's just no winning. Why a show like this is divided by gender when singing ability has no such boundaries is beyond me.

My favorite part is the bad singers for the first 5 episodes..but can't we cram the whole season into a few weeks? Other than 24 and House what shows are on FOX?? Can't they just show Idol like 4 times a week? Then it could be over in just a few short weeks...like baseball playoffs! I also agree splitting it men vs women when obviously the men aren't up to par is silly! Let the BEST singers compete!

i meant for this year... about the xx chromosome. not a general sweeping statment. i hope no guys get upset by my comment.

i'm with maggie mae. it's so obvious the talent is with the xx chromosome. an all-star year would be pretty awesome... but who would be qualified to compete? interesting...

I hate the boy/girl division until the top 12. What the hell? The guys were awful this year and didn't deserve to have 6 in the top 12. Let the best people through and more people will watch.

Ditch the 5 freakin' weeks of showing us bad auditions and just get to the good stuff!

Love Jinx's response! But, since that's probably not going to happen, a shorter season would help as would better talent. This year is particularly bad.

HAHA I agree with Jinx. This show is crap and has always been crap.
