I just grabbed a commercial advertising the new season of American Idol that aired during today’s Dallas/Seattle football game on FOX. No, it’s not the commercial featuring David Cook.

What do you think? features a hot chick in a bikini, of course. Simon Cowell lets her through to Hollywood, despite the fact her singing, like, totally sucks.

This one’s for the guys watching the game, naturally.

    I’ll admit, I laughed outloud when it aired.

    Why yes, I am easily amused by Simon’s facial expressions (see also: Fantasia’s performance), why do you ask?

    And it sounds like the new chick can throw down so maybe she won’t be a useless addition after all.

    I think we have figured out who that one is?

  • leome

    LOL That was fun. If Simon passed her I guess Randy said yes too, and now that’s probably part of the fun with the new judge, Simon gets to decide when there’s a tie.

    Is the bikini girl the same with the sexy site?

  • cheese

    I like that weird noise that Paula made and Randy’s hideous shirt. Anyone know what song that was?

    It’s good to know that mj is glued to the TV grabbing Idol commercials for us on Thanksgiving, lol.

    Is the bikini girl the same with the sexy site?

    I’m guessing so.

    I literally gasped when I saw it said AI8 commercial, then I read it wasn’t the one with David.. LOL, damn.

  • hypertwink

    OMG, I think I’m going to watch this season for Kara. ha ha ha

  • Barbariba

    I think the judges just might be the most entertaing aspect of the show this year. LOL

    Yep. LOL

  • leome

    Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m guessing so.

    Oooh, and I was thinking she could actually advance to top 24.

    Noticed the backdrop? There seems to be a certain lack of proportion between the faces… Taylor is smaller, and with a plant covering part of his face…

  • CookieLove1983

    What the hell? She got through! Seriously?! I luaghed at Simon though

    Give me 15 minutes…

    New commercial! ;).

  • cheese

    Yay, I actually caught it on the big screen. Much more appealing than the girl in the bikini. : )

  • FolkFan

    MJ, you rock. I was in transit and missed the commercial.

  • CarolS

    Am I the only one who thinks that letting her in was disrespectful to the people with talent who try out? :flush_tb: Hopefully this isn’t an indication that the show is going to go downhill this year. Last year had so much talent.

  • Jocelin

    Look out contestants; here come the judges. I have a feeling they are going to steal the show. Hee.

  • May

    Hopefully this isnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t an indication that the show is going to go downhill this year. Last year had so much talent.

    I’m guessing they’ll have the usual balance of great talent and great…well. However, I do find it a little weird that the only way Simon doesn’t get what he wants is if all three vote against him. Not sure I like that.

    Why yes, I am easily amused by Simonà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s facial expressions (see also: Fantasiaà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s performance),

    Fantasia’s performance + Simon’s face= win

    I realize that this commercial is simply a teaser with the hopeful end results of gaining more of the (I would assume)male audience but I also found it very disrespectful (it’s one thing to have her make the judges round for laughs but all the way to Hollywood it a bit much). It was all so fake and cheesy (even the judges). :thumbdown_tb:

    I think that Kara is going to try and be the complete opposite of Paula, something like a Simon “Minni Me”. I think one person Simonizing is enough but time will tell. :ohh_ee:

  • maracaibo

    think that Kara is going to try and be the complete opposite of Paula, something like a Simon à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Minni Meà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ . I think one person Simonizing is enough but time will tell. :ohh_ee:

    Yeah.. I am not really convinced about Kara’s addition either.

    The judges table seem so crowded and if the show is going to be about them it just doesn’t work..Not liking the interaction between them. She is trying to be the female Simon for sure.

    I think they are hoping that adding one more judge will increase the ratings, but I am not liking what I am seeing. I hope I am wrong though.

    Having watched Britain’s Got Talent (which has the perfect judge panel), Simon can funny this way, although I don’t care about this girl LOL. I thought they’d be all serious and dull like So You Think You Can Dance Australia, which desperately needed Mary Murphy, but no, they’re all kinds of fun and tease each other.

    If Kara is going to be “the serious judge”, Simon might loosen up a bit, for a change. It can become a great season. I’m still not going to watch…

  • Tony

    My dad saw this during the game and cracked up.

    I saw this during the game and was totally lmao.

    I can. not. wait. until the new season starts. I’m really excited about Kara and thankful that she seems to be another Simon, judging-wise. It’s about damn time they have someone else with sense on that panel. Heh.

    I wish TPTB would give more credit to Taylor. That was such a GOOD season and he was a great part of why I loved it so much.

    After watching seven seasons, I am hoping thos season will provide excitement as Seasons 7, 4, and 5 did!
