More problems for Idol: the first 10 cities on the tour were cancelled, with 19 Entertainment citing "production scheduling changes" (the Mandalay Bay website says "Production rehearsals have been pushed back two weeks"), although the usual "that's just code words for 'nobody was buying tickets'" talk is being spread.

The cities affected were:
St. Louis
Kansas City
Minneapolis
Detroit
Rosemont, IL (suburb of Chicago)
Tulsa
Broomfield, CO (between Denver and Boulder)
Las Vegas
Ontario, California
Oakland

There do not appear to be any plans to reschedule those dates, which doesn't sound good for Idol when you realize that the tour will now pretty much bypass most of the central part of the country (the closest cities to Chicago appear to be Columbus and Louisville, both over 200 miles away - note there are still stops in Los Angeles and Sacramento, so California isn't completely shut out).

There was a Groupon for it here in Houston. I've never seen that any other year.

I have not watched AI since Scott McSomething won. I got bored with it that season and really just didn't care about it anymore. It became a show about the judges and the contestants were incidental. I don't think any "fix" will make me want to watch. I particularly dislike the Seacrest and he seems to be the only one who is staying.

And it's the part of the show that gets the best ratings, so I'm pretty sure they'll be keeping it.

*bump*

Keith Urban has been confirmed to be returning to the panel of judges on the show.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...?utm_hp_ref=tv

A little bit of a surprise, in that it looked very much like they were completely cleaning house, getting rid of all the other judges and the producers, and possibly even changing formats. On the other hand, the fact that we never heard anything about Urban when the rest of the house cleaning was going on should have been a hint that he had a good chance of returning.

The money is on Urban, JLo, and Will.i.am.

RIP Idol.

They had an opportunity to get knowledgeable, articulate, entertaining judges and this is what they come up with?
Urban was ok, but Will.i.am has never said anything of substance in his life, and the thought of another season hearing about JLo's "goosies" makes me want to run screaming.

The new bosses are as clueless as the old bosses.

I thought Jennifer Hudson was already confirmed?
Was that just a rumor?

I do not care much for William and his ridiculous name or his craptastic music - however - it would appear that he was one of the major celeb judges on the UK version of The Voice and was pretty popular on that.

The Hollywood Reporter is saying AI has signed Harry Connick Jr. as the third judge.

Pretty funny how Lythgoe was ousted and yet they still ended up with the judging panel he wanted - Urban, Connick, and J-Lo
Seems like the new boss is the same as the old boss.

I liked Urban and from what we saw last year Harry is going to state his opinion and not be intimidated by the other judges. J-lo? Definitely better than Carey and Minaj but I would have liked to see somebody new.
