Idol Producer Nigel Lythgoe Wants Judges For One-Year Terms!

Nigel Lythgoe Idol Switch

Are you sure we aren’t just having a déjà vu with this whole American Idol judging switch up?

Haven’t we been here before? Is there ANY reality competition nowadays that keeps their cast members…?? LOLz.

Well, if you are wondering when Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler's replacements are going to be announced, it won’t be ANYTIME soon!!

Whomp, whomp.

Idol exec. producer Nigel Lythgoe recently said how the "spotlight of the press" isn’t helping the situation and that the show has their work cut out for them!

As far as prospective seat fillers? Nigel stated:

"I'm sure nobody's name will be mentioned at this time while we're getting it together. [T]here are so many names coming at me at the moment. I joke about it and say, 'Oh, I'm looking for the Three Stooges or Jerry Lewis."

Nigel continued:

"But at the end of the day, I think what we've seriously got to talk about is just using people for a year…If we do want these big stars, and we do, you cannot take them away from what they do. That's depriving the public of a star for a start and stopping them from earning a lot of money."

Not a bad idea, Nige!

Though he was "really upset" by Jennifer and Steven’s departures, he respects their decisions and understands that they have other career goals in mind.

Hm…maybe Nigel should call up his good friend Simon Cowell for some advice on handling the cast change! Ha!

    Nigel, the show has hit rock bottom - don't start digging.

    I thought you said yesterday that they were fired.

    I have this feeling that a one or 2 year term has been the secret case since Simon left because the performers have not been that great since then. So what better way to get all of us to continue to watch,

    Someone mentioned Gene Simmons. I know he is one of the highest paid celebrities on television but can you imagine how awesome he'd be? He likes to pretend he's tough but I can see him misty-eyed over some sad song and brutal over someone awful!

    Re: Angelia – Got to agree, no fun since Simon and Paula left, so I have not watched it, Sounds like I am not missing much.
