They announced some changes to the upcoming season of American Idol (season 10). I really wish Alex Lambert had been in on this season instead because it has a much higher slant on the development of the artist,which is what he needed at that point in time (not just someone assigning you or pressuring you to do a specific song).
Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe let everyone know that not only will we be seeing singing on American Idol, but they’re going to have other competitions and assignments, such as:
- Who creates the best music video (Can you imagine “I Didn’t Know” on American Idol?)
- Create a performance worthy of an awards show – ripe with backup dancers and a band
And man if ONLY this had happened while Alex was still there – they’re doing AWAY with the cutting round from 24 to 12. Last year Alex just missed the last cutoff. I bet he would have made it.
