I watched the first half of night 1 yesterday. Not only are the judges new, but
the format for the auditions is fresh, with more emphasis on finding a star than
on the drama and all the bizzarros looking to express their individuality and
alternative lifestyles.Connick, Jr and Lopez are great additions.
With Urban they won't be as controversial as Carey/Minaj or Simon Cowell,
so maybe those looking for sensationalism won't tune in.But as
a father, I feel more confident having my family watch with this crew and
Both Urban and Lopez have tattoos, I wonder if they were - or will be -
offended. It's a two against one battle so I won't be surprised if
there will be a morality melee sometimes during the season.

I am looking forward to the rest of the Idol season hoping that it will return
to the cleaner, wholesome days it once knew.
Very funny first episode for American Idol. Harry Connick Jr. had our family
