An inquiry through the Better Business Bureau (BBB) yielded no further information about these allegations.
It is wise to consider two main factors when deciding what and how much
tto plant: 1. Due to its location near the Twin Cities, the areas unemployment rate was morre
than three percentage points below the national average in May.

American Idol is ten times better than “The Voice”! American Idol rocks!!!!! Every Year it gets more exciting and better! When people say the voice is better it’s an opinion not a fact.

The whole thing seems rather political, in my opinion. It’s very clear that they eliminated some of the strongest “female” voices this season – opting instead for the weaker female voices, in order to ensure that a male voice is the ultimate winner this time around. And yes, it’s quite obvious that they can’t simply rely on unbiased talent to direct the outcome, but rather on only what’s considered “fair” representation, by eliminating amazing talent in trade for ethnic diversification. I’m so disgusted by all the micro-managing, that instead of watching American Idol, I’d rather watch The Voice – which actually has some really impressive talent.

right away, and don’t know anything about HTML, you often turn to web design software programs as a solution.
Nowadays, millions of websites use flash to display products, showcase services, and

Ii think the public sees through Harry’s non answer. You can’t just say it’s complicated and and there is a lot that goes into it. We are not blind. When the top contestants look like the united nations with a couple of them representing the LGBT as well we know how the contestants were chosen. It’s why I stopped watching a few years ago. I tuned in to see if anything has changed with the new judges but it’s still AI pandering to the people that write hate mail because there isn’t equal representation. A straight cute white girl gets the boot because they have to include MK to represent the LGBT community.

Yeah, you wanted to represent every genre. We get it but..how come the Top 5 boys then? Can’t we at least have 1-2 girls like Kenzie Hall or Majesty in Top 5 girls as well?

Really disappointed with the choices of girls this year!!!! I would have loved the have seen Kenzi… I think she was so original, darling, different, great stage presence etc.. Booo American Idol! You should have let America vote before you selected the girls to sing. I think you would have been surprised that people wanted to hear from this girl!
And… can’t the girls you didn’t hear sing be selected for the wild card?

I am furious with American Idol! What were they thinking with this Rush Week concept? Who ever created the concept should lose their job! I deleted this season’s series without giving the guys a chance! If the judges truly have input they missed the mark this season! The girls are a huge disappointment! I have been a devoted fan each and every season, but no more. I am done! Bye American Idol…bring on The Voice!

I am no longer watching, all of the girls they kept are the same, they should have kept Kenzie. Definitely think there were politics. She is talented and will make it without them. American idol definitely missed the boat on this one!

What does Harry mean by everyone has to be fairly represented. Is this liberal idol now? It’s about who’s good enough and charisma. She had more talent in her pinky finger than most of the other girls put together. What an absolute JOKE!!!!!!!!!! I hope she gets really famous before the next season

Disappointed but we are not the judges. They have their criteria and I am not there to hear or see the contestant. Hopefully she will be back next year.

I truly hope Kenzie finds another outlet to share her music other than American Idol. The show is NOT what it once was. As much as I loved the addition of Harry… the show is still run by out of touch, heartless producers.
