Yes, it's true. American Idol fans love to say dumb things on the Internet. Because it is, after all, the world's greatest Karaoke contest.
I personally have been a fan of the show since Season 4 (Season 9 just ended, for those of you who don't follow). I can tell you with a reasonable amount of knowledge that the show is going far downhill.
Thefans seem to be going down with it.
