American Idol Is Going To Change!

| Filed under: TV NewsAmerican IdolJennifer Lopez

American Idol judges new

Because of low(er) ratings, FOX plans to cancel change American Idol … again!!

A FOX big wig recently confessed that there are going to be a LOT of creative changes to the show. He revealed at this morning's upfronts:

“our challenge for [American Idol] next year is to put some fresh energy in. We probably didn’t do enough this year.”

Fox entertainment prez, Kevin Reilly, confirmed this, adding that before next season Idol will undergo “some creative tweaking.”

WTF does that mean???

Are they going to get spinny red chairs, or have group acts? Since Reilly was unwilling to elaborate on the changes, we don't really know. Howeves, we're pretty sure Idol's newest judges, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez don't need to worry about their job security.

The FOX prez says he thinks the judges are the cause behind the ratings drop. He describes the trio as:

“terrific and have great chemistry and integrity.”

We are excited to hear updates of the show's metamorphous, whatever the hell it may be!

    "metamorphous?" what the heck is that? you mean, metamorphosis!

    you have a lot of typos, mario.

    another example:

    "The FOX prez says he thinks the judges are the cause behind the ratings drop. He describes the trio as: “terrific and have great chemistry and integrity.”

    —So the judges ARE THE CAUSE behind the ratings drop???

    American Idol is boring; it's stale. Tyler is annoying and Lopez is stupid. Maybe the show has run its course.

    The lack of creativity in entertainment today is incredible. The executives are chasing the money dragon. It won't repeat itself. Let the writers develop something new. This show sucks, has always sucked, and will continue to suck.

    Re: La Garse – Exactly! Why is this show still on? There are too many damn singing shows on tv now and half of the American Idols, you never hear from again. It's been on the air for over a decade and only one third of the winners go on an make it big. And if you're a guy who wins it, forget it!

    get rid of Seacrest and stop letting the judges on stage to promote their projects and albums and in Jlo's case, introducing her boytoy. The judges are on stage more than the contestants and Ryan without Simon is just a man holding a mic. He is overpaid and over rated.

    Umm, GET RID OF THE BORING, ANNOYING, NAME-DROPPING RANDY DOG JACKSON would be a great metamorphosis to begin with…

    Re: gwen01 – Couldn't have said that any better! You are exactly right.

    S. Tyler really offers NO constructive critique. JLo, although nice to look at, also had very little "real" critique and does show her bias too much. Randy has become a cartoon and also offers very little. We need some judges who are not affraid to tell it like it is and be REAL with the contestants.

    Also, the VOTING PROCESS needs to be changes. ONE vote per telephone number. Lets stop the fan club homerism and see who really is the most popular out there.

    The themes are the same boring crap every season and only teen girls vote over and over. So BORING!

    I love how people are saying to cancel it.

    You do realize it is STILL the biggest show on television right?

    And yes it has way more viewers then the voice.

    "…the Fox prez says he things the judges are the cause behind the ratings drop."
    But yet, they're terrific, have great chemistry and integrity??
    Is the Fox prez loopy - or another case of Perez not proof reading his own crap? Do a better JOB, this isn't rocket science.

    If the judges are the cause for the drop in ratings then why would you retain the number one reason for the shows decline. Still a far superior show then X Factor and The Voice.

  16. 16

    The judges may well be the cause for the drop in ratings. They freaking always agree with each other! Also, I think it's time for the boot, not a reboot. Think of something new, folks!

    get rid of that head line grabbing idiot, j lo. shes a poor speciman of a judge, the look on her face gives her thoughts away, how they tried to sabitoge scottys win by giving him the song of kenny rogers,he fooled them, that year they crucified hally, this year holly, what scumbags, why do they do that, thats not constructive work, thats plain meaness. next year its over, why not give j lo the directors job, she has no shame, clothes, ingorant, and self promoter

    I think they should get rid of the auditions it's too long and boreing.I lost interest after a few weeks.I use to love the show and vote every week but not any more.

  19. MARIA says – reply to this


    I feel AMERICAN IDOL is not the same since JLO! It does feel as if the show is fixed. SINCE Jlo saves the wild card for Jessica. Elise ended up getting eliminated,she was very good and lots of people liked here.Elise picked good songs and was different. I remember last season with Pia Tascano she was always put down by JLO until she got eliminated and she was just as good if not better then JESSICA SANCHEZ. SO JLO why didnt you save Pia WITH your wild card! Like i said its all FIXED!
