He says there is now too much focus on the judges. "Idol back in those days was about the contestants. Kelly Clarkson and Justin [Guarini] and Tamyra [Gray] and Nikki McKibbin, they were all the stars of the show." "When I was on, Ruben [Studdard] and myself and Kimberley Locke were the stars of the show. Now Idol is about the judges. I don't even know if they remember there are contestants anymore."
