Oh my – I love my little ‘ole blog. About 4 days ago, I wrote that a panel of judges comprised of Idol Alumni would be the best and innovative idea yet.
And now, according to The Vulture, it seems that American Idol may just be heading in that direction.
This is what The Vulture had to say:
There’s a very real chance the next American Idol will be judged by a panel of former American Idols. As Fox and the production companies behind the struggling (yet still high-rated) singing show ponder changes for the 2014 edition, two people with knowledge of the situation tell Vulture that serious consideration is being given to the idea of filling one, and very possibly all, of the slots on the show’s judging panel with former Idol contestants. These sources say Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson have already been approached about the idea, and that the names of Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken are also under discussion. (Alas, Justin Guarini does not seem to be on the short list.)
In my May 19th article, I sighted Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson and Adam Lambert as strong possibilities for the judging roles.
This is way too funny. That’s one mighty coincidence or else great minds really do think alike.
All kidding aside, though, who wouldn’t want to see this happen? Perhaps, one or two alumni may be sufficient – in fact, that would be my preference.
But, American Idol would be able to stick it to the other shows with this move. Only American Idol can claim the superb achievement of creating superstars worthy of lending their vast expertise to the judging panel.
And, as one of my readers, murly, said, it would lend a sense of family to the whole American Idol experience.
