Idol is back, but the best of Idol is over

It’s baaaack and how different will it be. Now that Simon is gone, will any of the judges really be brutally honest. I doubt it. New judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler told reporters that they're looking forward to using their experience to help guide new artists. The show starts its 10th season next week, with only Randy Jackson left from the original cast of judges. OK so what about Randy and his let’s say fondness for the word "dawg," Randy promises fans will see "a more assertive dog, a little bit more 'hair of the dog.” Nigel the executive producer said the new season of "American Idol" will be more about searching for an eventual winner of the show, "rather than stopping people getting there." When asked about the lack of a major recording star emerging from the last few seasons, the panel said the problem wasn't in the singers but the records they've released. Changes in "Idol" include extending the "Hollywood Week" auditions to cut the semifinalist field to a smaller number, 20, which gives the voting audience fewer singers to choose as finalists, and allowing contestants to perform their own material. The judges will also choose "Wild Card" finalists again, though it hadn't been determined how many finalists the panel would pick. The first theme will likely be the 1980s and this year no more inviting celebrities to mentor contestants. Get ready for next week but I don’t think Idol is ready for what could be a tough ratings season.
