    American Idol New Season

    Is anyone watching the new season? What d you think of Harry Connick Jr. as a judge? I do love that he is musically articulate, and not above some self-deprecating humor!

    Anyone have any favorites yet?

    I knew I'd like this panel of judges. I wasn't let down!

    My favorite has to be a local girl that tried out last season and was cut in Vegas (I think). Her name is Brianna Oakley from Antioch, CA.
    We actually saw her perform about 5 or 6 years ago at an event hosted by the shelter I volunteer with. She was about 11 years old. And at that time I said.....that girl better try out for Idol in about 5 years!
    I am good at remembering names and made sure to remember hers.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I really like this judging panel, possibly even better than the original. It should be a good season. No favorites yet, since it is so early.

    I do so find HCJr so much more articulate than Randy or Simon Cowell! And no one had said "pitchy" yet! That always grated on my nerves. It's "off-pitch" folks, is that so hard to say? Okay "Off key!"

    I haven't been a fan of AI for a few years now. I do however watch it when there is absolutely nothing else on Last year was total mess with Mariah and that other one who I can't remember her name, suffice to say I didn't care for her much at all. Love Mariah tho.

    Harry does seem to be more serious then the rest and he is strict too, I like that about him. Jo Lo is a terrible judge and just a little fluff on the panel. She cannot judge singers since she can't sing herself or act either. I never liked her and is one of the reasons I don't watch much.

    Urban is adorable tho, just love his accent.

    Yeah last year's other judge was Nikki Minaj - between she and Mariah, the posturing and preening was pretty awful! Cannot say I miss either of them.

    I love all three judges,i am a big fan of Jlo, harry is awesome and i LOVE LOVE keith, You know he was born in NZ., he is so cool and down to earth.Redbird come on down under you will hear many accents just like his, i think he is a mixture of kiwi and aussie, the aussies have claimed him now, but he came from here originally..

    I will be missing idol as it is on a channel i cannot tape and watch other programmes, we have yet to get a system that does both, they cost too much, so i am a bit gutted as i love IDOL.,so i will just watch what i can.

    Hmm, I wonder if it will be posted on the Internet somewhere, and you could watch episodes that way?

    We do have a service tv on demand and I can watch things on my computer but unfortunately they changed the channel from tv 2 to prime for idol and it does not have that facility,I'm hoping they might repeat it on Saturdays,they do that with a lot of programjes ,they did X factor,I think I missed last weeks,forgot it was on grr.

    So is anyone watching? I thought the "telling the Top 30" this year was very drawn out, and designed for people who had not seen any of the show so far! We don't need a recap of every individual's story, it seemed like they were filling time, rather than making a compelling program, as none of the "so far" stories seemed to contain anything new ....

    I know the Olympics are also on, but as much as I like this panel, I am ready, so ready to get on with actual new singing! I did think the "instant sing-offs" during the narrowing down were good, it really was telling in a couple cases.

    I'm watching! I really like the judges and I agree about it being drawn out. I always think the drag out the early shows. I'm ready for the actual singing and contest to begin!
