We witnessed some remarkable talent last week and I expect to see some more this week and in the weeks to follow. This is American Idol’s Swan Song and I am sure that everyone involved with the show will work very hard to produce a musically rich and memorable competition.
This week, American Idol will stop off in Philadelphia on Wednesday, January 13th, followed by Denver and Little Rock on Thursday, January 14th.
The big news, however, is that the entire season will end a month early on April 7th. Although it took me by surprise, I have to say that this is a good idea. Three months of any reality show is more than enough. That being said, it means that we are very close to the American Idol Finale and to the end of an iconic musical era. It will be interesting to see what Fox will do with this time slot next year and in the years to come.
I also have to say I am really digging these judges – it is the perfect triumvirate of intelligent, musical and professional talent and it seems that all three are hitting their groove now. I hope that, at some point, Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban have an opportunity to work together again in another capacity because the chemistry between all three is perfectly balanced.
American Idol airs at 8:00 PM on Fox. You must be collecting favorites by now. Please share in the comments section below
