American Idol To Premiere On Thursday 20th January On Fox 8
The Simon Cowell less American Idol will again be fast tracked from the US this year. It premieres on Thurs 20 January at 7.30pm on Fox 8. It is then followed up on Friday as well at 7.30pm.
American Idol has been totally changed with Simon Cowell going. The only original judge left is Randy Jackson. the two new judges are Steve Tyler from Aerosmith, and J-Lo.
However, Jimmy Iovine, chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, co-founder of Beats Audio and one of the world’s most successful and prolific music producers, will join American Idol as an in-house mentor.
Rumour has it that there will be more footage from the house to try and personalise the show a bit more.
I have to confess the new cast members are not filling me with enthusiasm. American Idol ratings dropped last year, but having said that it is still one of the highest rating shows on US TV.
