American Idol Season 10 Finally Gets “It”.

American Idol Season 10 Judges, Host, Musical Mentor

The producers had to do something. After two lacklustre seasons, American Idol was on a spiraling roller-coaster ride towards oblivian.

The last few seasons, with a few exceptions, were a complete bust and the chemistry between the rotating stream of judges seemed strained at the best of times.

But this time, with the return of executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe, American Idol appears to be back on track.

This evening on Fox, the Top 13 Finalists will present performances which have been molded and crafted by record producer Jimmy Iovine and his team of specialists.

This is going to be a very exciting season and many stars will ignite  in the process. Personally, I feel that this is the strongest group of Finalists since Season 7 and a fitting way to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of this show.

However, questions still remain unanswered and will only be resolved as the show moves forward. Did some of these singers peak too soon? Can their voices stand the test of time, pressure and the all-important criteria to Idol success – song selection?

We shall see soon enough. I, for one, can’t wait. Can you?  There is so much diversity in this Group of 13 and this fact alone elevates the entertainment level of the show. It also increases viewership.

Let the magic begin!

One Response to “American Idol Season 10 Finally Gets “It”.”

  1. MCL, you are actually right in posting your question about peaking too soon and weather the contestants can withstand the test of time with singing practically every day.

For me personally, I’d rather no screaming high notes sooner than later.
