... When you think about what the show is actually about and represents … I feel like it’s taking away from the quality of what ‘Idol’ is all about. This is about people accomplishing their dreams, you know, experts guiding these young people to do what they’ve done."

My wife is the strongest and classiest woman that I’ve ever met, if you watch the video, she just maintains her composure … I don’t think she’s moved by the theatrics and pageantry of it all. She signed up to do a job to help young people accomplish their dreams and this is like a sidebar. I hope that’s not what this show becomes, about the cat fights."

The show is solely about a singing competition, that’s why America loves these shows, they want to see people reach a certain goal or win … and then to make it about something it’s not, it kind of shows that the producers and the network are losing their foot a little bit,” Cannon said.
