Change is Coming to American Idol

by at . Comments

A new judging panel isn't the only change coming to season 10 of American Idol.

Producer Nigel Lythgoe told TV Guide this week that he has a couple unique ideas for the season that kicks off in January:

1. There will be no top 24, as the show will cut contestants directly down to the final 12. Explains Lythgoe: "I didn't think [the top 24] were very good, I was bored with them by the time they got there."

2. Theme weeks will focus on decades instead than individual artists.

3. Finalists will face new challenges, most prominently contests to make the top music video, while also working with a band and dancers for an awards show-type performance.

It also sounds like we'll be treated to more country music than ever before this season. Sounds good to us. What does everyone else think of the changes coming to Idol?

by chaging this much,the real american idol is gone. so many judges changed,from pop music to country music. from top 24 becomes top 12. the past american contestants are doing so well now. can they really make sure that after the change they can still do as well. i can tell u i wont like this season as i like pop more and judging by billboard,many other people agree with me

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
