The new season of ‘American Idol’ is only 4 months away and it seems that not only are the Judges going to be different, but they have decided to delete country week.
So, this is how it is going to work from now on. Executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe, has stated,
“We are no longer going to get the country singer to sing rock and the rock singer to sing folk, but instead they are going to stay in the genre that their mentors think they should work in.”
Who is the mentor you ask? The mentor is not anyone famous; he is the chairman of Interscope Geffen A-and-M Records. (This same record company is going to be the ones signing the new Idol finalists) Good bye Sony, as well!
Are you excited for the new season of ‘Idol’? New judges (Jennifer Lopez & Steven Tyler), new direction, new label company and a mentor. Let’s wait and see.
