I'm not really a fan of American Idol. However, I do watch it once in awhile and normally I will watch when it's ending especially the finale. I love most singers who won AI. My favourite to date has to be Kris Allen, the humble artist. I also like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks and the most recent Lee Dwayze.
If you have read the newspapers, magazines or tabloids you would know that the latest judge from American Idol to quit is Kara DioGuardi.
And unless you've been living under the shell, you must also already know that Simon Cowell quit AI a few months back. Besides that, Ellen Degeneres also quit Idol after only one season! Before Ellen, Paula Abdul left Idol. After 9 seasons, American Idol is undergoing a lot of changes.
Randy Jackson is still staying strong to Idol after all his counterparts are leaving. Why? Hmm...my guess is that Idol is the only show that would pay him more than any other projects? Yes, he is a bassist and he has been invited to play for many celebrities performances. The recent one would be him playing in the Emmys but as I said being a judge would earn him so much more.
Paula has her own reality show, Simon is moving on to another talent competition, Ellen has her own talk show and a new recording company, Kara is a songwriter-producer who wrote many hits such as No Boundaries(AI), Walk away(Kelly Clarkson) and she's the mentor for Jason Derulo. Well, Randy...he is a nice person and a good judge. Just hope he doesn't become another Samy Vellu(if you know what I mean) I think it's time for him to move on to another project and let Idol make a 360 revamp with all-new judges and host!
Of course it wouldn't be the same without the old judges especially the laser mouthed Simon but some things can't be there forever. A change may be good after all!
