If I cared about this horrible show anymore, I’d say this is the worst upset in American Idol history. But since I love pointing fingers, I’d like to take this opportunity to point my fingers directly at these terrible judges. If you watched the show last night, you might have noticed that the judges complimented every single person that performed. You know what happens when you don’t insult anyone? America has absolutely no guide — and it becomes a crapshoot. Actually — they did insult someone. They insulted their best singer — which was Pia Toscano, and now Pia Toscano is packing her bags. Specifically, they said she lacked performance quality. Even though that might have been true last night, they also neglected to give every other performer the same criticism (in addition to other, much deserved criticism). You cannot sit back on your throne complimenting terrible singers and expect America to get it right. Believe it or not, Simon Cowell’s criticism affected the votes, and that effect is missing on this season’s show. So good job guys. You have no one to blame but yourself.

I can’t agree more with you. If Randy Jackson starts to say something negative, that big butted Jennifer Lopez will shush him up. Why can’t they just be honest and give constructive criticism for once and let the contestants improve on their weaknesses.
Now the save has been used and one of the better singers on Idol has been sent home. STUPID STUPID STUPID!
You are so right! She does shush him! They all suck! I’m so angry with this show. I wish Simon and I were friends so I could call him and gossip about this. I’m sure he’d agree with me too.
This is the truth! Well said.
It’s total bull! They always blame America, as if we are the ones at fault
for this disaster. They need to take a look in the mirror!!
I BLAME IT ALL ON JENNIFER LOPEZ. SHE WAS VERY JEALOUS OF PIA FROM DAY ONE. JENNIFER WAS SO CRITICAL OF PIA, NO MATTER HOW PERFECT SHE PERFORMED, OR HOW BEAUTIFUL SHE LOOKED THAT NIGHT, JENNIFER NEVER COMPLIMENTED HER. THERE WAS ALWAYS A CRITICISM. EVEN MARK ANTHONY HER OWN HUSBAND DISAGREED WITH HER. I ALWAYS WATCHED JENNIFER LOPEZ REACTION WHEN PIA PERFORMED, NOTHING BUT JEALOUSY AND ENVY. AS A SINGER, ACTRESS,DANCER, SHE HAS ABSOLUTELY NO TALENT, NOW AS A JUDGE, SHE IS THE WORST EVER. EVEN HER CROCODILE TEARS LAST NIGHT DID NOT CONVINCE ME THAT SHE WAS SORRY TO SEE PIA GO. GET RID OF NO TALENT JENNIE FROM THE BLOCK. SEND HER BACK TO THE BRONX.
That’s a very interesting take on this, and I can’t say I disagree. I found
it to be quite odd that Pia was the only person that Jennifer Lopez said
something negative about. Think of every performance that night and how
terrible some of the contestants were. You mean to tell me that every
single other contestant was worthy of unconditional admiration — EXCEPT
PIA! It’s ridiculous. I’m not against criticizing your most talented
contestant — but I’m certainly against it when you aren’t criticizing
GET RID OF JENNIFER LOPEZ AS A JUDGE. SHE IS A PHONEY, WITH HER CROCODILE TEARS. SHE WAS SO JEALOUS AND ENVIOUS OF PIA, SHE ALWAYS MADE A POINT TO CRITICIZE PIA NO MATTER HOW BEAUTIFUL SHE LOOKED ON STAGE AND HOW FLAWLESS SHE PERFORMED. EVEN HER OWN HUSBAND MARK ANTHONY DISAGREED WITH HER CRITICISM. ATTN . JLO FROM THE BLOCK, YOU COULD NEVER HIT THE NOTES AND SING AS BEAUTIFUL, OR LOOK AS BEAUTIFUL AS PIA. SHE HAS A LOT OF TALENT AND A LADY WITH A LOT OF CLASS, YOU DON’T AND YOU NEVER WILL. I WILL NEVER WATCH AMERICAN IDOL AGAIN UNTIL THEY GET RID OF JENNIFER LOPEZ.
WOW — you really don’t like JLO, do you? 🙂
I used to and I gave her the benefit of the doubt as a Judge on AI. But watching her shatter the dreams of a young Woman like Pia, there is no justification. Not everything is about JLO, she came from nothing and she should of all people understand what it’s like for Pia to reach out for the stars. Every weak, I dreaded watching and listening her criticize Pia, who was so FULL OF CLASS and took it all like a PERFECT LADY. As far as JLO, SHE IS SHORT OF TWO LETTRS FROM THE WORD CL … ASS.
Yeah — she definitely picked on Pia. My bigger complaint, though is that
she didn’t pick on anyone else. It’s just weird to only criticize your best
performer. This never would have gone down with Simon Cowell. But now
Casey Abrams is going to win.
i expect some to blame JLO because they maybe just never like her but why? maybe they themselves just don’t know…it is just like Steven said..Stereotype…..lmao.
Jlo did not push the voters to not vote for their favorite…EVER THOUGHT THAT? JLO did not tell votes to feel secure of their favorite…did you think that too as you are so smart…asss??? lmao.
Keep it real and recognise that if the judges are to blame then it would be EVERY DAMN ONE…OR NONE…At least Jennifer told Pia what she should work on from here on…what did Steven tell every contestant?? short and sweet words…so we can critize one because we want to or keep it real.
You have no clue what you are talking about..I am sorry if you are a J-Lo fan but yes she was jealous of Pia and put ONLY Pia down..Did you not watch the show??Judges have weight and the voted to vote off the only one bad things were said about Pia ..because like you they like Jennifer..I am disgusted and no longer a fan of Jennifer.
We can blame the judges for critisms or lack there of but we cannot talk silly nonsense and blame jlo saying she was jealous…because i would like to know why the hell would she be jealous?? now that is ig right there…. jlo spoke of exactly what Pia admitted of..she said she got nervous and stage fright..so YOUR POINT IS??? KEEP IT REAL AND TELL IT AS IT IS……THE JUDGES SHOULD GIVE MORE JUIDANCE TO THE VOTERS..ALL THE JUDGES.
Perhaps jealous is not the right word. Nuts is more like it.
I blame Steven Tyler just as much. Randy is definitely the best judge.
But I also wouldnt’ say they criticized Pia bceause they didn’t like her. I think they really wanted her to win and they just wanted her to be absolutely perfect.
So they really didnt’ care enough to criticize all the others.
I blame everybody.
I blame everybody too! But it’s just insane that so many of those singers
were terrible and they criticized Pia. When Leona Lewis was on X-Factor
Simon practically begged the audience to vote and not assume she was safe.
He’s smarter than all their pea sized brains put together.
I quit watching when they sent Kendra Chantelle home….
I still watch — under protest.
Wakie up FOX – Get rid of JBlo – What a Waste of Money! She shows how jealous she is of Hot YOUNG Girls like PIA – and wants the show to be ‘al about her” — poor Marc Anthony! He had the TALENT & VOICE FOR YEARS & ALWAYS WILL HAVE A HOT UNIQUE VOICE! – Yet, he let crying JLo (who CANT SING FORTH A Sh–) into his Life – and this is How she thanks him! Just like she did the rest of em! Use ’em up! I SAW DUMP THE IDIOTS OF FOX AND DUM THE SHOW! Gone is the ORIGINAL IDOL that HAD CLASS!!!!
