According to a new report from Vulture, FOX is considering a new twist on the judges for American Idol next year. In a bid to boost dwindling ratings, serious consideration is being given to the possibility of having former contestants on the judges panel. Their sources say Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson have already been approached and Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken are also being considered.
I think this is a great idea. This show has gotten incredibly stale since the judges table has become a revolving door of overpaid celebrities who just want to boost or promote their careers. The meddling of the producers who seemed frantic this year to manipulate the results has become increasingly apparent and this could be the breath of fresh air we’re looking for. If the show can get back to its roots and become genuine again, I might actually start watching again.
If I can’t have Harry Connick Jr. (who seemed frustrated with the show’s b.s.) I would love a panel of contestants. I might prefer to see Jordin Sparks instead of Hudson, who seems to be everywhere on my TV lately. If she’s not warbling at me about Weight Watchers, she’s taking over Smash. David Archuleta probably wouldn’t be considered because he’s just too nice. While his criticism wouldn’t exactly be constructive, it would be hilarious to watch him attempt to be critical of someone with his smile and laugh. How would he have reacted to William Hung or any of the awful auditions? Think of the look on his face! Cutie pie.
Who would you like to see on the judges panel next season? Can American Idol be saved?
Oh, look who it is Pretty Little Liars fans. Everyone’s favorite creepy baby killer costume. All aboard the Rosewood Halloween Ghost Train! This is a Dark Ride, the special Halloween themed episode, airs October 23rd as part of ABC Family’s 13 Nights of Halloween and features special guest Adam Lambert.
Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer are looking forward to some good old Halloween fun now that the traumatic events with Nate are behind them. But once aboard the Rosewood Ghost Train, the girls are in for much more than just some childish trick or treats. With “A” running amuck and unexpected party-goers popping up at every turn, this Halloween event becomes one killer party.
Check out these spoilery stills from the episode:
Uhoh! Who’s attacking Spencer? These girls should just walk around with Mace or a box cutter or something to protect themselves.
At least she looks gorgeous.
And hey! Caleb is alive!
Hanna looks gorgeous too!
Have the girls put aside their differences with Paige?
Rumor has it a judge on the popular FOX reality show American Idol will not be returning next season. Even more intriguing: American Idol‘s own Adam Lambert has been in talks for the past month to become the new judge.
I’ve been hearing that Randy Jackson is the judge not returning. If that were the case, I’d be really shocked. Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler both have hectic schedules with new albums and tours coming up.
What do you think of this news? Would you like to see Adam join the show? Which judge would you like to be replaced?
Doctors better wake up and get out of their Nursing Pajamas to tend to the extremely excited Idol fans if this is the case.
If I had to choose which judge to replace, I would probably pick Jennifer.
