Despite all the changes, this show is pretty much exactly where I left it.

We have about five thousand years before we actually get to the performance episodes, so I don't want to make any premature predictions, but I am optimistic about this season, if just for the reason that it's not going to be last season.

Call me a sentimental fool, but after two hours of mostly terrific musical performances, the sight of 17-year-old Scotty McCreery hugging his family and fellow contestants was the kind of happy ending that was hard not to love.

The era when [American] Idol was seen as a supernatural force seems to be at an end. The time of thinking of Idol as just a TV show among TV shows may have arrived.

I couldn't help but to notice how much the show's standards are lowered with Simon out of the picture.

As Idol careened toward irrelevance, [Steven] Tyler tried to keep the show afloat. I think he deserved to win over any contestant in his inaugural season.
