American Idol returned with new judges and while most thought it was going to be a disaster, they’re doing a pretty decent job. Who knew Randy could actually be a decent judge? I guess Simon was stifling his honest juices (eww!) and/or they finally got him off the weed. Knock on wood, I haven’t heard “dawg” come out of his mouth in a long time. Jenny from the Block has been inconsistent, but she brings the nice with some constructive criticism thrown in. Much better than Paula in that regard. Thank goodness we have Steven Tyler to bring the crazy. It’s like they took all the old judges’ quirks, threw them in a pot, added a singer, pseudo-singer/actress/fly girl, and a bassist for Journey and pulled out a decent judging panel. I miss Simon’s strange analogies, but we can’t have it all. So here’s my take on the Top 11.

That being said, anyone who allows a munchkin to do their makeup, and I’m talking to you J. Lo, has no one to blame but themselves.*
