It seems there’s more trouble in ‘American Idol’ paradise. After competing their lowest rated season in history a show spokesperson announced they would be canceling a number of upcoming tour dates.
Here’s a few former Idols that could prove beneficial for Idol in the long run.
Jennifer Hudson may be returning to the show that launched her into the spotlight, that is if reports of her signing on as a judge for next season of American Idol are true.
The eight-week project had fans involved in everything from the lyrics to what she’d wear onstage to perform the song on the ‘American Idol’ finale.
The first all-female AI finale in nine years crowned a winner, Candice Glover, but the Season 12 finale still didn’t rack up the numbers.
Whatever the reason, judging panels on Idol, The Voice and The X-Factor have been marked in recent years by ever-changing bodies in the judges’ seats.
After making the careers of artists like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, longtime American Idol judge Randy Jackson announced Thursday (May 9) that he will not be returning as a judge next season.
Phillip Phillips is headed “Home” mid-tour due to ongoing health problems. Following doctor’s orders, the American Idol announced Monday (May 6) that he is cancelling the remaining nine dates of his current college tour.
The early- to mid-2000s were a simpler time in music. Rock music was actually thing on popular radio. Production on hit singles was often stripped down nearly to its core rather than with bombastic synths and beats. People still (kind of) bought albums, at least early on in the decade. And American Idol was more about the singers than it was the judges.
Carly Rae Jepsen is taking fans into her songwriting world for her latest project.
