The long rumored changes for American Idol were finally announced today. As we know they added a new Judge, who sounds like she will just be a useless b!tch (they say she is meaner than Simon) and a waste of air. But the other changes I am liking for the most part!!!
There will only be three weeks of auditions instead of 4 and there will be no Thursday shows for now! Next instead of only one week of Hollywood auditions we will get two. Something I think that the show has desperately missing! Next there will be 36 singers who make it to the Semi-finals. For 3 weeks, 12 will perform one night and the top male, female and vote getter will move on to the Top 12. You say that only comes out to 9, well that is because the final 3 will be decided in a wild car round. As you remember that is how we got Clay Aiken!!! Although unlike when Clay made, the Judges will decide who makes it to the Wild Card and who will be the final. I am not liking that change because once they pick their favorite they will shove that person down out throat. As of now the rest of the show will stay the same.
Here is the schedule for the Fox show!!!
