American Idol is coming to an end, and everyone is weighing in!

Former exec producer Nigel Lythgoe believes the time was right to pull the plug. He said:

"I'm grateful they decided to pull it. I'm likening it to a heavyweight boxer. You have to know when to quit. You don't want all these young kids coming along and knocking you out and taking all the credit. When you have been such a heavy puncher."

Nigel left the show to create So You Think You Can Dance, which this season adds former Idol judge Paula Abdul to its ranks!

So what does Paula think about the end of an era? She said:

The Haunting Of American Idol!


Oh man! This has low-budget, direct-to-DVD horror flick written all over it!

The remaining American Idol contestants have reportedly moved out of the Beverly Hills mansion they were set up in at the beginning of the reality competition…because they believe that it's HAUNTED!

LOLz! No, we're not making this up. AMAZING, right?!

Source closes to production claim that the cast has repeatedly complained about lights flickering on and off inside the house, followed by an out of the blue spider infestation. However, the deal-breaker for them was when multiple people watched a bed sheet float down an empty hallway ON ITS OWN!

They then demanded that producers move them to a different location, to which they were obliged!

Poor guys! Didn't they realize that all the 'paranormal activity' is from the ghosts of contestants past?

Why do you think no one has seen Taylor Hicks, Kimberly Caldwell, or Sanjaya in a while?! Their spirits were trying to warn the newbies that their careers get trapped in that house once the show ends, too!

LOLz! Or worse! They could end up in purgatory - like Brian Dunkleman and Paula's prescriptions!

Former Idol Host Responds To Seacrest's Drunk Digs!


During Ryan Seacrest's inebriated escapades on American Idol this week, he made a pretty flat joke directed at former co-host Brian Dunkleman's current irrelevance!

Dunkleman, of course, responded by pretending to take the high road, but he still managed to take some equally flat digs at Secreast!

He says:

People really came to my defense, which is a satisfying thing. But it was a joke. Well, it was an attempt at a joke. But unfortunately for Ryan, instead of a laugh, he got applause. That’s never really been his strong suit. But it was a joke, and whether it was mean-spirited or not is irrelevant. A joke’s a joke; you can either take it or you can’t. And quite honestly, once you’ve had Jimmy Kimmel say in a monologue that you should be punched in the face, and at this point you’d probably be receptive to a knife in the gut, I think what Seacrest said was pretty tame.

We think that congratulations are in order to both of them!

We can all agree that neither are particularly funny!
