American Idol Shakes It Up For Season 10

Fox.com

When American Idol returns for its 10th season in January, there will be other big changes besides the brand new judging panel. Producer Nigel Lythgoe revealed three new changes to the show’s format.

  • Fewer will make it to the top: Instead of a top 24, the show will start with a top 12. “I didn’t think [the top 24] were very good, I was bored with them by the time they got there,” Lythgoe mentioned. This is similar to Lythgoe’s change to the most recent season of So You Think You Can Dance, which cut down its finalists from 20 to 10.
  • Music videos: The contestants will have to make the best music video and also learn to work with a band and back-up dancers.
  • New theme weeks: Instead of having theme weeks devoted to a certain artist or genre, the theme will be decades. In addition, Jimmy Iovine, chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, will be an in-house mentor.

Hmmm, looks like they’re trying real hard to boost the ratings after last season’s low numbers. Either that or they don’t think J.Lo and Steven Tyler were enough to seal the deal.
