+ 'american idol starts tonight', criag ferguson announces, 'season 12 starts tonight. the ratings are going to be huge! the other networks might as well just run test patterns- dont change a thing, nbc. this is the third season without simon cowel. people thought the show wouldnt survive without simon cowel, and these people are called 'simon cowel'. i think the new judges will be great, each new judge will bring something new to the show: mariah carey will bring wisdom, nikki minaj will bring sass, keith urban will bring... stubble. supposedly there is a bit of tension between the ladies on the show, but what i've seen though, ryan seacrest and kieth urban get along just fine!'
