American Idol Worship Presents: Face-Off

at . Comments
We've all seen the American Idol auditions. After five seasons, humiliations, broken dreams and rags-to-riches tales have become synonymous with this time of year.

But should we be subjected to this ritual every season? Or are the auditions something that should be done away with by the producers? Do we need to see William Hung on the way to Katharine McPhee? Do these early rounds even serve a purpose, or are they integral part of the show's fabric?

It's become the subject of much debate around here, and in our first Face-Off, our panelists explore the issue.
