[ # ] Fantasia didn’t even know who the new American Idol judges are
December 4th, 2017 under American Idol 1-5, Andy Cohen

As we know American Idol is coming back next year and they finally hired Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan to join Katy Perry at the judges’ table. Turns out here was one person who did not know that and that was the third season winner.

Yesterday, when Fantasia was on Watch What Happens Live on Bravo, a caller wanted to know what she thinks of the new Idol and if they asked her to be a judge. She says they did not call her. Then she admitted it is too soon, but she likes that they are “opening doors” for singers.

Then she had some advice for the show, she said, “You have to bring in good judges.” Then she explained why, “When I was on Idol, we had people who truly respected music, was passionate about it. Don’t just bring up people who are good for the look. Bring in people who are going to give good advice, encourage people and tell them what they need to know about this industry.”

Then when Andy Cohen asked her what she thought about the new judges, she did not know who they are. Then when he named Lionel Richie, she seemed OK with it. When he said Katy Perry’s name, you could see by her face she did not approve. Finally, when he remembered Luke Bryan’s name, her facial expression did not change. Does that mean she does not approve? She said it would it be good, but she did not say they would be good.

You know what, she is right it is too soon and you need good judges. Once Idol was more about named judges than the people who knew the industry and gave good advice like Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul, it quickly went down hill. As soon as they brought on Ellen DeGeneres, the show never had a successful Idol who put out hit records. Therefore, this year, will most likely be another of year forgetting who won right after they win.
