    But why do they keep going back every year to TX instead of replacing it w/ an OK, Arizona, or so?

    I read that too. It sounded to me like Nigel thought THAT was the big reason why AI6 didn't do so well. I don't think so at all. It might have been a minor piece of the puzzle, but the talent just didn't do it. We didn't have a good mix.

    Paula Abdul Dishes on the Idol Auditions
    October 15, 2007

    It just wouldn’t be American Idol without a little name-calling from Simon Cowell, now would it?

    “He [now] calls Randy and I ‘Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.’ I’m Dee, Randy’s the Dum!” Paula Abdul told PEOPLE over the weekend at Lili Claire Foundation’s 10th Annual Benefit Dinner and Auction.

    She says Cowell came up with the unflattering name during the audition process for the show’s upcoming season, which recently wrapped up.

    “What’s happening is Randy and I have been agreeing on the talent as he disagrees,” says Abdul. “He thinks we don’t know what we’re talking about, and the truth is Randy and I do know what we’re talking about. It’s Randy and Paula against Simon. I’m on the winning side!”

    Despite the teasing, Abdul says that she and Cowell, who have a love-hate relationship, are getting along. “In the past couple of cities we’ve had no arguments. He’s still pestering me like hell, but we get along pretty well.”

    Jackson, meanwhile, sums up Cowell’s attitude by saying: “He’s cranky.”

    But the bright side is that the audition process has been “really, really good, I must say,” Jackson tells PEOPLE. “You still get the crazy buffoonery going on, but for the most it’s been pretty good. I would say somebody with skin and teeth is definitely going to win!”

    And Abdul agrees. “Last season, I’m going to be real honest, I wasn’t as excited, I wasn’t sure, I wasn’t certain. As the season progressed it was fun to see how Jordin [Sparks] really came through, and she’s such an amazing kid. This season the auditions [have] some very, very exciting talent. All different—good-looking kids, crazy kids, great back stories, interesting backgrounds, and kids that really went out there, went out on a unique limb to be different and to capture our attention.”

    Still, not everyone is hitting the right notes with the judges, Abdul concedes. “Oh God, there’s going to be one person who’s probably going to have a bigger career than William Hung, let me tell you!” —Jenny Sundel
    Simon has a bit of nerve to be saying that. It took a long time for him to warm up to Kelly Clarkson. He didn't want to put Chris Daughtry nor Taylor Hicks through. If it weren't for Paula and Randy, we wouldn't have had the opportunity to enjoy these talented people.

    I posted this in the media thread, but this might have been a better place to put it. AI7 will begin with two 2-hour shows on January 15-16.

    Re: American Idol Season 7 *~*Spoilers*~*

    The AI wannabes are back for final elimination cuts. Different things this year....

    Today was the first day of cuts. What I am seeing is 160 auditioners total. 80 auditioned on Monday-24 were given a "fast pass" to tomorrow (Thursday). On Tuesday, there were 80 who auditioned again and 24 were given a "fast pass".

    Those not given a "fast pass" had to sing acapella today. They cut alot of people today! Looks like they are favoring guys this time...more girls were cut than boys!

    They are actually in Pasadena rather than Hollywood right now. Hollywood will be tomorrow and Friday.

    They haven't had any group songs and rumor has it that there won't be any....unless those left after the cuts today were told they would do groups tomorrow and then the room eliminations on Friday.
