Come on and come back to reality Jennifer Lopez, Jena cannot sing but she can scream, you need to re-evaluate your comments. Gena with a J stinks – open you ears and eyes!!!

3 over paid, unqualified judges. Keith . I LOVE that …. That is my favourite song (crap). Jennifer should be ashamed to collect 15 mil for the garbage she spews out. Randy Jackson – knows NOTHING about singing ! This program has gone to hell in a hand basket !

Alex Preston is a foxy guy where is his comments Jennifer .when you favor one or another contestant it’s not fair . Either treat them the same with the comments or standing up you sway the world one way or the other. Harry’s right acting like you prefer one contestant impacts others. Just voice your opinion .PLEASE

i hate what this 3 judges have commented to Alex Preston . i dont know how and what they heard on Akex version of the song he sang last wednesday . i may not be a professional singer ,but Alex Preston did a wonderful rendition of every breath you take song . Its so easy to give a not so nice comment but didnt they realized how hard to rearrange a song and made it so smooth sounding in the ear . I think this judges needs hearing aid to help them out !!! i dont care even if they are professional singers . But they made a lot of mistakes judging !!!! Calling your attention judges, this is the worst season !! My heart goes with Alex Preston last wednesday . he was sooo good , amazing arrangement . Iam so impress with you ! with your talent of arranging songs . that’s what you call talent judges!!! You still have time to change your messy judging ways before american idol goes down to trash !!!

Are you kidding, Keith Urban couldn’t hide how much he was impressed with Alex. Keith admired Alex and his ability to play different instruments

Best judges Idol has ever had. They all have musical experience and try to share it in a constructive manor. I am interested in the talent being entertaining not the judges. Last year was a total disaster and got to the point that I did not care if I missed the program. I dislike hearing adults bicker like spoiled little children looking for attention. It is one thing to disagree, but do it in an intelligent way and like an adult! Great program this year and great talent!!

Best judges since beginning. I stopped watching last season. Having judges fight is annoying. Divas… it’s not about them .I feel the judges give criticism without being cruel. Bravo

I TOTALLY RESPECT THE EXPERTISE OF THE JUDGES (KEITH, JENNIFER, HARRY). I’M A BIG FAN!!! My only complaint, is when Jennifer and Keith share thoughts about these young contestants privately while these singers are performing. Very disrespectful as a judge!!! I believe it would be more PROFESSIONAL and FAIR for them to share thoughts of the performances after contestants have finished performing… I’m sure the contestants as well as the viewers would appreciate that gratitude…. These young stars need their thoughts independently, not conversely… I”M JUST SAYING, JUST SAYING… God Bless!!!

KEITH, JENNIFER, HARRY, A terrific combination, the “best” team . I’ve been watching for 11+plus years.. Love the show and personally think Harry’s comments are honest and from the heart. I hope he is back next year. It’s wonderful to hear “sensitive” positive helpful comments from all the judges. I hope they are all back next year. Right On!

What are you talking about, Simon, they just canceled X Factor. He doesn’t have it anymore. Love this panel, best they have ever had by far. Love Keith Urban especially !!!

Harry Connick Jr. tells the singers to understand and believe the words they are singing. How can Keith and Jennifer encourage a singer to believe in words like “run faster than my bullet”? These judges have a responsibility to help young stars understand they have an impact on their young listeners. If they don’t believe the words, they shouldn’t sing them.

Harry Connick Jr. is condescending, sarcastic and depressing. I personally hope he is NOT invited back next year.

Too bad Ricky and the band are totally over rated…the drummer didn’t come in- in the right timing on Sounds of Silence…and WHY didn’t they have that great snare hit to bring in the band behind her ? That is classic and they came in out of time and limp wristed..with a cross stick drum beat-WEAK!

Earlier in the season they butchered “Paint it Black” behind Jena (I believe it was).
That was THE weakest version I’ve ever heard on the musical end of it-but the girl still was strong.
Fire the band!
