American Idol is getting a MAJOR overwhaul for season 13!

New showrunner David Hill thinks Per will be the man to bring Idol back to its ratings glory days.

American Idol Just FIRED Executive Producers Nigel Lythgoe & Ken Warwick! Find Out WHY!

american idol producers nigel lythgoe ken warwick fired fox ratings judges nicki minaj mariah carey randy jackson

After a season of unacceptably low ratings, Fox is hellbent on reviving American Idol!!

Unfortunately, according to one source, that means canning executive producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick!

Both men helped produce AI's inaugural season in 2002, but a decade worth of dedication isn't worth much in the high-stakes world of network TV programming!

Especially when viewership is at an all-time LOW!

That's the lucrative game producers sign up for, though! If they preferred hugs and ice cream sandwiches to pink slips, they could've gotten a degree in continental philosophy!

So, Nigel and Ken are now jobless!!

Three of the show's judges departed, too, with the fourth — Keith Urban — reportedly still on his way out.

Even Fox's alternative programming guru Mike Darnell was shown the door!

What happens now?!

Glambert Doesn't Feel Like He's Struggling!

Filed under: American IdolAdam Lambert

As we previously mentioned, Adam Lambert is an America Idol mentor and executive producer Ken Warwick gave some deets about Glambert and his career - or his opinion at least!

Warwick said:

“at the moment [Lambert's] not doing quite as well [in his career].” Hopefully, his Idol appearance will put him “back firmly where he belongs, as a major star,” and adding that “it kind of breaks my heart to see someone with that much talent struggle a bit.”

WTF?!

At a post-show press conference, Adam responded to the comments with true grace!

He said:

“It’s so sweet of him. I don’t feel like I’m struggling at all. I think things are right where they need to be. My single ‘What Do You Want From Me,’ is just breaking into the Top 10 right now. I’m really glad that they had me on the show. I really enjoyed helping the other contestants."

We think Glambert is gonna be just fine!
