Jordin and Ruben look good and have both lost weight but the rest have aged badly. Sanjaya looks like he's aged about 20 years. And Bo bice would kind of look like Caleb followill if he cut off all his hair and shaved off that thing growing on his face.

My all-time fav. is Adam Lambert...He's the best singer ever on Idol,and no matter what anyone thinks about him;he does have the most talent.I hate Idol w/the " big star" judges...I'd rather have Simon back & even Paula,than Jaylo and the others ( like that woman last year--niki monage(sp?) what a JOKE she was!!Harry Connick Jr...no!!! Keith Urban is ok,I guess,but I don't think A I will last much longer @ this rate.After Adam Lambert in season 8,I think..it's all downhill from here on.My slideshow above didn't work right;doubt A L was among these people.

You are right! Adam was the very best. I loved the way he performed on Idol...actually I liked those performances better than any I've heard him do since. However, I did prefer Jennifer Lopez as a judge. I watched every season except last season. Couldn't stand a minute of those judges.

Fantasia looks better, Ruben looks better, he did lose quite a bit of weight. Sanjaya aged a lot. Frenchie needs to lose weight, she would look better. Melinda and Danny looks better. Jordin Sparks looked better before. For the rest, whatever. I don't watch Idol anyway, never did. I hear about some of these people on Wendy or TMZ.
