This is a terrible idea. There’s no way this would bring the ratings out of a nosedive.
OK, Candice was great. Like, really great. She even got a glitter shower from Mariah Carey because of course that’s something that happens when Mimi is a judge on “American Idol.”
HOWEVER, Candice’s stellar performance wasn’t the only thing that caught my attention last night. Yes, I’m talking about that weird voice/noise at the 1:10 mark. Did it say “LOVE YOU”? Is it just a noise? Fox hasn’t returned my request for comment, so I’m just going to keep obsessing about it.
Bring on the conspiracy theories!
At apparently no extra cost or any other catch. So basically it’s a way for Fox to put in a press release that they received 50x as many votes than in previous year?
White guys with guitars have no trouble winning ‘Idol’, but selling albums in the subsequent years is another story.
This ‘Idol’ nonsense is starting to irritate me. I’m just going to not post about this judging situation until it’s final.
Wait is that a Gersberms reference at the end?!
With this and J. Lo’s rumored departure the ‘Idol’ table is again going to look very different next season. Also, producers will have to act fast as auditions take place over the summer.
While this is a big problem I think it’s important to note that of the three combined winners from The Voice and the X Factor US, none have become breakout stars. So at least Idol still has that over them.
