I think Gladys makes a good judge....she's experienced and knows what she is talking about, the only thing that worries me is that sometimes she is way too nice kind of like the paula abdul of the group...I may be mistaken but I have never heard her say anything negative to any of the contestants. Deborah Gibson on the other hand is a better judge because although she lacks the experience of Gladys, she knows about the pop scene and she has shared some negative thoughts when she has any. Debbie and Gladys are in my opinion doing a fine job, it seems every week that the guest judge is the only one that stinks as a judge except for maybe Brian McKnight. Eh in the end it doesn't matter anyway, we all judge the contestants anyway.
