How long has American Idol been on thus far in the 2013 Season?
What…only two weeks?
I’m already bored silly and wanting to bash producers for the changes to the show.
Sadly, as expected, Idol 2013’s main focus has been aimed towards the judges and, sources have said that it will remain on the judges for the rest of the season rather than on the competitors and their talent.
You may be scratching your head, asking why.
“It is a lively, entertaining, passionate, argumentative, incredible panel. … They’re more active than the judges were last year,” reports, Mike Darnell, a FOX producer.
“There’s more arguments, more disagreements, just a lot more debate. Nicki and Mariah certainly have had their moments, but all of the judges have had their moments. Keith’s had his moments with both girls, and even Randy, who has been there 11 years Former Idol Judge and Aerosmith Front Man, Steven Tyler, graces Idol in drag during auditions for Idol 2013., got caught up in it.”
So, Mikey seems to think that the talent in a talent show isn’t and shouldn’t be the exciting part of the show anymore? I could have sworn that was the reason for having a singing talent show in the first place but, it seems that is not the case in FOX’s agenda this season.
The season started off with an episode of what could be titled, “Diva’s Feuding” when rapper, Nicki Minaj and Pop Queen Diva, Mariah Carey, went at one another in a war of words. In another episode, Minaj storms off stage during auditions, claiming to be “done” after a debate about country music and fellow judges, Carey and Jackson, trying to frame contestants into genres of music.
The auditions have been focused more on the judges’ reactions than to the talent itself. How pathetic as this promises to be a season more about the most certainly, lightly scripted tension at the judges’ table as well as hard-luck stories of contestants that may or may not be true? It won’t be about the talent and FOX has made that clear right from the get-go of this season.”
About the only bright spot thus far this season was at the end of the 4th audition show when Former Idol Judge and Aerosmith Front Man, Steven Tyler graced the auditions, in drag.
As cheesy as it was, it still beat the antics behind the judge’s table. And, by the way, Tyler looks better in drag than a lot of women.
