When she actually takes the time to seriously evaluate the contestant’s performance, she’s often very good. However, her antics during the rest of the show are so over-the-top it’s exhausting. If you ramp up what you saw on MCAU about 25 notches, you’ll just about have some idea of why I’m not watching American Idol this season. She’s also somewhat inappropriate with young males auditioning, especially if they are very good-looking. Sometimes it’s just good fun, other times it’s icky. I can guarantee that if Luke Bryan or Lionel Ritchie treated young girls the same, they’d be fired. I have nothing against her and like some of her music, but her act wears thin.
While I thought everyone going nuts when they saw her was amusing, I tried to think of one living person who would cause me to react like that and I can’t. I really can’t.
Sad to see Hayden go but he seems a bit out of his league in this group so it was inevitable.
