"American Idol" is really bothering me now. I totally sympathize with the British guy. These people literally walk off the street, and EXPECT to be told that they are deserving of a major record contract? And if you don't tell them that, they get MAD? What the hell. Never mind that the show is giving them an opportunity to perform in front of an audience of millions that they would normally never, eeeeeever get. I can't believe these people, most of whom seemingly have zero musical training or experience, cop an attitude when someone tells them that they're not one of the best unsigned talents in a country of 300 million people. Yet the show seems to mostly be about booing the British guy because he's a bad guy. I'm not feeling it.

Simon Cowell became the most hated man in Britain when they ran the original series "Pop Idol" over here, but he's more like a panto villain just being nasty for the sake of it. Besides, a lot of the no-talents deserve to be told they're not going to make it.
However, if the end result is anything like our verion, you'll end up with a couple of bland stiffs releasing dirge that clogs up the charts no end regardless of Mr. Cowell's efforts.

The problem with Cowell is that he manages WESTLIFE!! The fact that he is responsible for one of the worst bands created tells me he has no idea what musical talent is. Well, apart from when he said that the eventual winner, Will, was bland and had no vocal range.
It it is like the UK version, it will be fixed as well. Will over G-gareth? Purlease!
Is heard Fat Rik Waller has gone over to try and win American Idol. Has anyone seen him on it yet?
