American Idol Producers: OUT!

by at . Comments

Fox is not sitting and letting American Idol die a quiet death.

With Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey all out as judges - and Keith Urban's bags as good as packed - The Wrap has confirmed that producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick have also been let go.

Both have presided over Idol since its inception, though Lythgoe left for two years in 2008.

The competition flopped in Season 12, falling to season low ratings and losing its timeslot to The Big Bang Theory among 18-49-year olds.

No word yet on who will replace Lythgoe and Warwick, though let's hope they don't bring Motown Night and other tired themes with them.

As part of the show's major shake-up, Jennifer Hudson is reportedly in as judge, with Kelly Clarkson and Adam Lambert possibly on deck.

and another thing this is a VOICE competition..not a fashion exhibit...a sad story recount...a acting or musicians competition...so how do we sound? Did we pick a good song? did you touch us with you interp of the song you choose.... could i hear you gasp for breath in the middle of a phase much less a word???? that is what a voice competition is......

nicky was bad enough but now we have someone from England? obviously at one time PARTtime or backup singer as a group.... judging sololists? for star potential? A backup singer spends her life blending in and not upstaging! How can she judge? and perhaps the worst thing is she cannot be understood half the time,what is her spee3ch problem? a Cleft palate?

Adam lambert? Jennifer Hudson? Appealing to what audience? Rifle shot. Good luck. Adam lambert, irrespective of any talent is polarizing, at best, no better than Minaj. Repeating mistakes expecting different results equates to.....come on you can get it....insanity
