  • Nancy O'Dell and Jewel have pulled out of the show because of injuries. Should be interesting to see who replaces them. I can't wait for it to start I really don't care for Idol anymore. They have really messed it up in my Opinion.
  • oh wow I had not heard that...was really looking forward to seeing Jewel dance.....will be interesting to see who they replace them with.....

    hugs debbie
  • I watch it and totally enjoy it. I was sorry to hear about the two that had to bow out. Knee surgery is no fun been there done that.
    I have no faves yet in the "non pros" but love Cheryl
  • I really liked The young gymnast shawn.....she did really well and I like Melissa.....The guys have a lot of improving to do . I did like that they really did try to dance .......

    I was not a fan of Dennis Richards dancing.....but I am not a fan of hers at any time so maybe that is why....

    Hugs debbie
  • I don't care for Denise either but also like Shawn a gutsy young lady
  • I am so excited about this new season - I loved Shawn but really didn't like Denise Richards - She looked so stiff but I don't care for her anyways which seems to be the general consensus - I thought that Bruno was really brutal in his observations which was surprising to me - I think this will be a good season & am looking forward to next weeks show!!!
