American Idol Rest In Peace: Nicki Minaj And Mariah Carey Responsible For Your Demise!

By Robert Paul Reyes

As American Idol lumbers through its 12th season, it seems impossible to believe that this show once ruled the ratings, decimating the competition.

Idol`s first winner Kelly Clarkson still rules the pop charts, but lately Idol has turned out one unforgettable white male singer songwriter after another.


Is it any wonder that ratings are down about 50 percent from its nadir? Is it any surprise that the talk around the water cooler is about the latest Harlem Shake video, and not Idol?

If TLC created an amateur singing contest hosted by Honey Boo Boo and with the child star`s family serving as judges it would destroy Idol in the ratings.

Idol desperately tried to save the sinking ship by hiring a diva, an Illuminati puppet, and a winsome country star to serve as judges, but America ain`t buying it.

I haven`t seen a single episode of my former favorite show this season, and unless God smites Minaj and Carey while they are dispensing pearls of wisdom, I have no intentions of doing so.

Idol turned Ryan Seacrest into a megastar entertainer and producer, and if he has any sense he will bail after this season mercifully ends.
