It seems to me that American Idol may be on it’s last leg. This season there will be no Simon, no Paula, no Kara, no Ellen and no Ricky. (Ricky Minor the music director is also leaving the show.) So that leaves us with Randy (come on dog) and Ryan.
Hmmm…. this does not bode well for the future of Idol. Even if you didn’t care for Simon or Paula personally, they did add entertainment value. I liked Kara fine and from what I saw of Ellen, she seemed to be the voice of the people. I did NOT think they were amazing but they were fine.
Rumors are rampant all of the web about the new judges. The latest I have seen is Randy (who is still under contract), Steven Tyler and JLO. I don’t doubt the qualifications of most of the people I have seen rumored to fill spots and these three are (again) fine BUT it seems that when things start to change this much people get antsy. The public doesn’t seem to care much for change.
I wouldn’t be shocked if AI didn’t weather this storm very well.
