- They show too many crappy people
- They spend too much time on each crappy person
- They encourage crappy people to audition by giving them so much airtime
If the auditions they show are a representative sample of the actual bad to good ratio, then it's no wonder the judges seem drunk half the time. But me thinks the load the audition weeks with all the annoyingly bad people.
I really like the Idol. I do. I love seeing people with talent compete and test themselves. It's the reason I watch Project Runway.
But bad auditions kill. Seriously.
