    One Judge Quits 'American Idol'

    From yahoo! News about 12 minutes ago:

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Rapper/disc jockey Angie Martinez discovered she wasn't tough enough to be an "American Idol" judge.

    Martinez, who was to join original judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson for the Fox talent-search show's second season, quit after the first few auditions.

    It became "too uncomfortable for me to tell someone else to give up on their dream, especially when I realized that many of them have supported my musical career," Martinez said in a statement.

    Fox will stick with a trio of judges and not fill Martinez's slot, a spokeswoman said Wednesday.

    The first edition of "American Idol," with the acid-tongued Cowell offering blunt assessments of both would-be pop stars and his fellow judges, became a summer hit for Fox.

    Texas cocktail waitress Kelly Clarkson won out over 10,000 entrants, claiming a recording contract. Auditions for the new season started last week. No air date has been set.

    I know, I thought the same thing, lobeck! When I saw the headline, I was like "yay, Paula quit!"

    I just heard about this in the news. Guess she didn't have a tough enough skin as she thought she did. I, too, wished it was Paula who quit.

    Hmm, I wonder if "The One" will come crawling back, since we beat that other web site with this news by at least 3 hours?

    I sure hope so. I mean, we aim to be first in American Idol news.

    omg John

    I saw a brief intrerview with Angie on ET.
    She said we can all sit at home and criticise the bad singers, but it was so much more difficult when they were right in front of her.
    She just couldn't bring herself to do it.
    I guess it's better that she gave up before the latter stages of the competition.

    .
    Christ, it's not like she has to rip them a new one, she just has to be honest. That's too hard for her?

    Sounds like she would've been another Paula.
