Will he or won’t he? That is the question and it’s a good one, up for strong debate here on MasterclassLady.Com.
And the question is: “Will Nigel Lythgoe make a timely return to American Idol Season 10 and , with him, bring higher ratings for the show ”?
The departure of popular yet controversial judge Simon Cowell, followed by bandleader’s Rickey Minor’s segue to the Tonight Show With Jay Leno, has left the show noticeably bare at season’s end.
And yet, the show is in desperate need of revitalization and, according to several news sources such as the New York Times, it seems like there is no better time than the present.
Personally, I would like to see this show’s focus return to the the art of singing. During Season 7, American Idol “got it so right” and, by coincidence or not, this was Nigel Lythgoe’s last year as producer.
So, was Season 7′s line-up Nigel’s vision or was he dissatisfied with the line-up? What caused him to leave, other than he was involved with “So You think You Can Dance“? He was managing before and will continue to manage his busy schedule if the Idol negotiations are a “go” this season. So many questions!
I remember quite clearly that Simon Cowell was bored with the personalities of the Season 7 singers. Really? These young singers sold-out arenas all over North America during their tour and the Season 8 and 9 tours were pale in comparison.
And so the beat goes on as we sit patiently awaiting the announcement of the new format.
