Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

It’s okay..

In my opinion, Diddy is waaaaaaaay too big headed to be a judge on this show. He interrupts people including other judges when they have just as good of advice as he does, sometimes even better. Just because your “diddy”? That kind of attitude is just ridiculous to me. It shows how selfish & ungrateful he is. You made the audience apart of this show so when hey give their feedback about a performance or if they don’t agree with what a judge says then they are allowed to do so!!!! After all, we are the ones that make or break your careers. The listeners & fans are everything & he shows he doesn’t appreciate them. I’m very disappointed in the show in this aspect. I could barely watch because of his ignorance.

Pompous artists should not be in charge of a show.

Meghan is fine, she is cool and collected. But the others are trying way to hard to make themselves more important than each other and the show. The format is really bad, I have seen good artists over and over again stopped from proceeding.
