    Gave the show one last chance because of the new judges but what’s the real problem with American Idol is who they put through. Three singers on the first night should not be in this years final 30. Two of them were terrible and the other was borderline but other ones who were eliminated were better. All three are black. Jordan and Malaya were horrible but at 15 and 16 there’s time to grow. But this is what Idol is all about. Lets use them for the shows purpose. Same goes for Emannuel. His story is what the show is using just like Odette last year. Four singers who got eliminated were better than these three. Keri, Madelyn, Casey, and Leah were way better than these three especially Keri who was fantastic. There is no way that these three great artist picked these terrible singers to go through without the producers urging. Totally scripted. It amazes me that this country is made up of 18% Latin American or Spanish and there is just one contestant. The Afro American percentage is 15% and they have 10 contestants already in and Nico may be eleven. Where are the Asians who make up near 5% and a growing percentage of Indians who make up the 2nd greatest population on this planet. I asked this to American Idol and they will tell you that will not make good television. So use these young people and give them false hopes especially these two young singers whose best advice was to go home and practice and develop your singing. Day two was a little better but again they picked a singer who just don’t have the voice in Maryaelle Sellers but she again will give you good TV. Yes she is also black but before you call me a racist, I think Savion Wright deserved a spot and he is black. What I am saying is why American Idol is losing viewers and will sink like the X FACTOR is they won’t let the real talent just dictate the shows success. They arranged this last year with Candice Glover winning when all the polls had Angie winning and the judges were hailing Candice the next Whitney Houston. Was part of this, the on going lawsuit with former black contestants versus American Idol. Yes I do and also the white guitar playing male artist was a part of the result last year. This year you gave us a facelift with these judges who are good but let them decide on the talent. American Idol you were worth watching but now you will be a dinosaur soon. Fox, you had a good thing in Idol but you let these producers ruin it.
