American Idol should stay off the air. The winners never do anything. My thoughts on Katy judging get those coins :lol:

In the United States, "American Idol" is the only show that has produced credible and solid music stars tho (Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, etc).

"The Voice" may be seen as "cooler" these days, but still to this date I haven't seen an actual big star coming out of that show, well, Melanie Martinez did, but not like Kelly or Carrie hit.

I know a handful of Idols winners. I know no artist attached to Voice. I know Melanie but never knew she was part of it :lol:

The voice only seems to excist to give some underperforming artists a nice extra check, and for Blake and Adam to be able to live their bromance :lol: replace the contestants with dolls, puppets or even cats and dogs and you probably get the same ratings :lol: :lol:

The Voice is getting old, it's pretty much a vehicle for artists to get career buzz again. At least with American Idol, artists like Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban are very articulate in judging the contestants even if they use the show to promote their music. Katy is probably going to be like Nicki Minaj or Mariah Carey, using the show for publicity more than anything.

Do they really pay her $25m? If so, then she did a very clever move by accepting the offer.

KATY PERRY SCORES $25 MILLION DEAL For 'American Idol'

Katy Perry is getting a staggering $25 MILLION to judge "American Idol" ... this according to sources familiar with the negotiation.

Multiple sources tell us ABC was desperate to sign a name before the Upfronts last week, when honchos announced she was the lead judge. As one source put it, "Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they'd be screwed."

TMZ broke a story way back in 2012 that 'A.I.' was trying to get Katy as a judge but she rejected the network's $20 mil offer.

As we reported, ABC tried to get Kelly Clarkson but at the last minute she jumped ship and went to NBC's "The Voice." NBC also snagged Jennifer Hudson.

We're also told ABC is "on the verge" of signing the deal with Ryan Seacrest to host the show. Sources connected with the first run of 'Idol' tell us Ryan was making $15 mil a season at his high point. We're told Jennifer Lopez was also raking in $15 mil a season. So Katy blew them both away.

That's a ton lotta money! I hope it doesn't flop like Britney's X FActor gig where she paid millions of millions and the show was a disaster.

Huge drama at ‘American Idol’ over Katy Perry’s $25M deal

Katy Perry’s big $25 million payday at “American Idol” has created huge drama at ABC and at the relaunched singing competition.

The “Firework” singer’s deal left “pennies” for fellow judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. We’re told that Ryan Seacrest’s hefty salary of about $15 million also cut deeply into the budget.

So I guess women don’t always get paid less than men :o :lol: jk...I think the pay here should def be more equal!

She's worth $5m at best - can't believe she managed $7m more than a legend like Mariah.

It's not the 1950s either but it doesn't stop Elvis Presley selling more albums than Katy Perry.

Name and status mean something and it's very hard to lose them - shade her weight, shade her looks, shade her lackluster performances, but she'll always be Mariah Carey.

A bad Mariah is worth more than an excellent Katy - just the way it goes.

^^^ Not true at all. I know we are in UKmix but everything isn't about how many albums an artist has sold. :lol: :lol: :lol: They want to pick who they feel will be a great judge. They had Mariah on there, and that whole season was a mess. Katy has personality, and that is needed for a show like that. Ratings is what they want.

In my opinion, both worth nothing and are talentless. Barely penned any songs and had huge teams doing all the stuff for them.
Get me at least some Bono to even out the ridiculousness of the show itself.

Mariah has written or co-written 80-90% of her own material over the years, including (I think) 17 of her 18 US #1s.

Anyway, American Idol isn't about songwriting - and songwriting isn't a necessity anyway, performance and vocals are both crucial.

Might not like her stuff, but to say Mariah Carey hasn’t written any songs just isn’t true. Half them are crap i’ll admit, but she’s a very successful song writer.

All I Want For Christmas Is You alone is more successful than some people’s entire careers

Anyways, they should let Idol die, then bring it back in 5 years. Doubt anybody will watch this

Songwriting credits and actual songwriting (it's not ''a portion of the lyrics'' or ''the general idea'') are two very different things though.
Anyway, back to the point of ''American Idol''...Is there anyone still watching it? Even ''The Voice'' as a format has stopped being exciting long time ago. They need something new, in the current pastiche pop music climate I suppose 'Dancehall Idol'', ''Reggaeton Idol'' or ''Faux Latin Pop Idol'' would be more suitable.
