The auditions for season 9 of American Idol are now completed and we’re moving on to Hollywood Week. New judge Ellen Degeneres will take her seat among the judging panel next Tuesday putting an end to the celebrity guest judges who have been filling her chair for weeks. So we want to know….who did you love and who did you hate?
American Idol took a slightly different approach this season in the audition phase, opting for celebrity guest judges to fill the seat once taken by long-time judge (and resident mayor of Crazytown), Paula Abdul. In reality, the guest judges were there temporarily while the American Idol producers scrambled to find Abdul’s replacement. That replacement turned out to be funny woman Ellen Degeneres who signed on to serve as the show’s fourth judge earlier this year. But in the meantime, we’ve had to endure our share of the good, the bad, and the not-so-entertaining stars who popped up during the auditions.
The celebrities who showed up during American Idol‘s audition round this year ranged from a sitcom star to a R&B legend to a Broadway leading lady to a Spice Girl. We want to know what you think! Who did you love? Who did you hate? Who should be invited back next year? Who should be banned from the show forever? Weigh in at our American Idol message boards or comment below!
And for those of you with a weak memory, here’s a little recap of who stopped by the American Idol set this year:
Victoria Beckham (Boston & Denver)
Mary J. Blige (Atlanta)
