It's Back....bring on Mr Nasty!

American Idol returns tonight and this show is a total weakness of mine! Generally I don't do reality shows, but ever since Pop Idol started the brand in the UK, I have been a fan. The Hubster just tolerates it, which tells you he loves me!

The next two nights are 2-hour audition shows, our fave part and always entertaining. This year they have introduced a new female judge, Kara DioGuardi, a former room-mate of Paula's and songwriter. The Hubster thinks this is tactical, so if Paula finally tips over the edge, they have a replacement in situ'!

Here's hoping Simon hasn't softened up, I love him to bits (not fancy you understand!) and he is rarely wrong. Bring it on.....

I have to admit that I don't get into American Idol nearly as much as Betsy does.

I love watching the X Factor - not seen American Idol yet though.

Attention Hubster: Dude, lets go grab a beer and shoot some pool while the other halves hog the TV with that utter silliness.

I'm watching it right now. And they were in Phoenix, only 50 miles south of me.

Yes here I sit glued to American Idol myself. I can really do without the bad stuff but I'll get through.

I know!!! I know!!!! I can't help myself either!!!! What did you think of the new judge? She's a little annoying but has potential. I like how they did the flashbacks tonight. Bikini girl has to go!

Oh you beat me to it. I hope you're pronouncing Kara's name properly.

EPM - no I never pronouce Kara right, we have one in school and I say it just like Simon.

Pam - think she maybe a bit of a biatch, but I love that Paula is trying to look more serious with specs!

Ralph - AI is just more glamnsnd way bigger!

George & Rob - Hubster feels the same way!

Loved the limited vision guy and the girl rocker wit pink hair. OMG how bad were some of them, the XRAY guy was the funniest though. Bikini Girl defo needs to go, way too much I love me going on!

Love love love it! :) What did you think of the new judge? I wasn't too keen on the idea at first, but I like her.

Love American Idol. The really bad auditions are annoying, and, yes...bikini girl must go.

I saw the first Pop Idol and that was OK, Ant and Dec helped make it bearable when they presented it. Never watch X Factor, can't stand it. Thank goodness it's over but I hate the fact it's totally spoiled wondering who has the Christmas No 1 record.

If Americam Idol is as bad as X Factor by gum, hubster must love you to sit through it!
