If you've only got ONE shot at FAME you might as well get it right!!


  1. Tony, Ryan has a life. One he built without help from a famous younger sibling. Something to think about.

  2. Agree. Why knock Ryan, he's one of your brother's most valued friends and not a hanger on, like some i could mention. Don't be so snide with your comments, you don't have the charm to pull it off like Simon.

  3. You are right Tony. Ellen is not the hit everyone was looking forward to. I read an article yesterday from a guy who just wants them to cancel Idol right now and be done with it!!! No judges chemistry at ALL. And Paula needs to replace Danni for the whole series of BXF this fall. The British press likes to act like Paula doesn't exist, but the fans loved her when she was on the auditions a few years ago. The Brits deserve to be treated to Simon & Paula magic just like the Americans.

  4. Oh goodness, I don't know what the hype about Paula is. All she was to the show was one big joke, rarely saying anything worth listening to. She was most fun during Season 5 when she seemed drunk the whole time, otherwise, I was more than happy to see her go!
