First of all – isn’t this picture (featured above) beautiful? Kelly Clarkson’s face looks radiant and expressive. What a musical revolution she started! She gave mesmerizing performances week after week on American Idol and set the bar so high for those who would follow in her footsteps.
So, it is only fitting that she is selected to serve as guest judge for the Top 10 show which will air on Thursday, February 25th at 8:00 PM on Fox. Additionally, she will be the featured performer on this show, so there is so much to look forward to on Thursday.
However, I digress. The Wednesday, February 24th show, scheduled to air at 8:00 PM on Fox, will also be jam-packed with multiple events.
First, we will watch the judges whittle the Top 14 down to their individual picks for the Top 10, which means 4 singers will immediately advance to the Top 10.
Secondly, the remaining 10 singers will perform as Wild Cards, where your votes – which will be revealed on Thursday – will advance 6 to perform once again as part of the Top 10 Finalists on Thursday.
And then you get to vote again. However, the Top 10 Results will be revealed at the top of the program during the Top 8 show on Thursday, March 4th. Yes, there will be a double elimination every week until the Finale.
I don’t know about all of you, but, man, is this complicated. And rushed. I don’t see how the eventual winner is going to gain any momentum or reasonable exposure with this convoluted and compressed format. Do you?
Share your thoughts. I am anxious to hear what you think!
