Yup, that's right.

Not only are there new judges (J.Lo and Steven Tyler), but American Idol is being completely revamped for its tenth season.

Some of the new changes include an updated set and online voting as well as original songs to be written by hit songwriters and producers for the contestants so that they don't just have covers to choose from.

Also, going back to its original roots, the contestants will be living in an Idol mansion together. Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe "was keen on it," a source says.

And that's not all. Other changes include faster elimination rounds, faster music releases, theme week makeovers, and even possible music videos to test out contestants' acting skills and ability to incorporate backup dancers.

Hmm, seems like they're afraid of a little competition (ahem, US X Factor).

What do U think of the new changes? Will U be watching??

    Sounds a bit more ambitious. Original tunes give it a bit of cred, and at least beats the yawning karaoke cover versions of O.P.'s songs.

    You really need to get off X-factor's dick. And as someone else said, both shows are on the same goddamn network and at different times of the year. I wish people would remember that.

    sounds like they aren't doing so well if they are throwing in the whole kitchen sink.

    Yuck. I've been done w/ American Idol for two and a half years now. It's garbage. I do plan on giving the X Factor a shot though.

    I only hope that Lopez chokes on her own vomit on live TV. I will miss it of course (thank goodness for you tube) as I will NOT BE WATCHING!!!
    Rest In Peace A.I.!!!

    American Idol is dead. They know it and so does everyone else.

    Can't wait for X Factor though!!



  14. 14

    IDOL AND XFACTOR ISNT EVEN ON AT THE SAME TIME OF THE YEAR ANYWAY. IDOL IS JANUARY START AND XFACTOR TAKES THE FALL TIME SLOT. XFACTOR UK IS SUCKING THE LAST 2 YRS. IT'S JUMPED THE SHARK ALREADY. THESE LAME REALITY SINGING CONTESTS HAVE HAD ITS RUN. YAAAWN!!



  15. 15

    Original tunes won't make a damn bit of difference unless the contestants themselves wrote them. This is a talent show right, let them write their own songs and prove they have talent.



  16. 16

    Still won't watch it. JLo is too annoying. When and where is X factor showing?



  17. 17

    People will watch out of curiosity and then tune out.



  18. 18

    Whatever, too late I already lost my desire to watch the show. They should pick Shania Twain. Yawn, yawn, ZZZZZZzzzzzzzz.



  19. 19
