    Between Clay & Adam….ADAM!

    If Mariah or Keith are not there, they should just CANCEL the show…

  3. 3

    Expect even lower ratings next year…

    Having Jennifer and Adam might have worked a couple of years ago, but I think this ship has sunk.

  5. 5

    This is a bad part on Jhud. AI is a sinking ship she should have never joined. But then again she signed on to be on "Smash" and that sunk to it's low.

    Not Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken…they are the 2 most annoying former contestants. The show will surely be cancelled

    Adam was on the finale of AI this year and it was the LOWEST rating for a finale yet. So I really don't think he would be a good choice at all. Jennifer Hudson, I think, would be very low keyed and quite boring. The latest report from Kelly is she is not interested….smart girl!!!!! This is probably all hype anyway and AI is really good at that.Anyone in their right mind would steer clear of this sinking ship…too much competition out there now .

    Great moved, it's about time they stop bringing on these Divas, like JLo that have to rely on shows like this to keep their careers alive?

    American Idol season 13 doesn't "air the Fall", it will air in January of 2014. Just like every season, the program runs from January to May. Get your facts straight.

    air this fall*

    First of all, it says "multiple sources." Until Fox or Idol producers confirm this, then I don't believe it. But…if this is true, this will not work, AT ALL. This show is a mess right now. Again, they should have two permanent judges, then bring a guest judge every week. I still think that Harry Connick Jr should be on the panel next season.

    My choice for judges would be Angie Miller, Adam Lambert, Tim McGraw and Jennifer Hudson.
    Angie would bring back all the viewers that tuned in this past season, Adam would be a huge draw in himself, Tim McGraw would attract the country music fans, and Jennifer Hudson has wide range appeal. Ratings could skyrocket with these 4

    Idol airs in january, which is winter, not fall…

  18. 18

    Kelly will never do it. Idol is dead. They could have stopped after season 1. They found their superstar that year anyway.

    Re: Jeffee Teddee Bear – You just killed AI with your four selections. Horrible choices. Good thing you don't run Idol.
