I think Harry Connick Jr is fabulous! He is a talented musician, honest, and is funny. I adore him! I started watching especially for him.

I miss Simon. The new judges make up for that. Love all three of them, the lack of bickering is great.
If Niki M had been on this year, I would have passed. She should have been replaced mid season.

I personally believe that the American Idol format is the best. The focus is on the contestants winning, whether we agree with the end results may be another matter, but all in all AI remains my favorite. Unfortunately Simon Cowell's sometimes brutal honesty, is sorely missed. I like the Voice's blind audition's at the start of the season, then it seems to be all about the judges, not too cool for me, it gets old. As for the X Factor, here it's not only about the judges, but it's also about Simon always wanting his cake and ice cream too! Simon was GREAT on AI, but he's like a spoiled child/bully on his own show The X Factor. I even watched a partial season or two of the X Factor Italy, and even there most of the focus is which judge will end up winning!!
I believe that in order for American Idol to regain it's form it will need to find a good panel of judges, ones that are not afraid to say the truth and not afraid to go against the grain of what the other judges say. Is this years panel the right ones? We'll have to watch and see, I'm hoping that I'm wrong about Connick.
