What’s more American than ‘American Idol?’ How about the president, the leader of the free world? ‘Idol’ producer Nigel Lythgoe is actually asking our commander-in-chief if he wants to come on the show during the live episodes to perform Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together.’ Obama performed an impromptu version of the song at a fundraiser at the Apollo Theater, causing Green’s music to spike in sales. Perhaps Lythgoe thinks that a cameo by the President will boost the show’s relatively sagging ratings?
If you watched American Idol last night then you saw the audition of Amarillo Native Kristine Osorio. Kristine is a mother of three who flew to Houston to audition. Kristine is in the process of going through a divorce, and took out a loan to pay for it. However, she decided she would take a chance on herself and her talent and used the money for a airline ticket to Houston. Check out her awesome audition.
Casey Abrams can now call Paul McCartney “labelmate.” The hirsute sixth-place finisher in last year’s ‘American Idol’ competition has inked a deal with Concord Music Group, which is home to former Beatle McCartney as well as Carole King and Rush.
The gloves are off. With the debut season of ‘X Factor‘ in the rear view, nabbing significantly less viewers than ‘American Idol‘ expat Simon Cowell had hoped, and the 11th season of ‘Idol’ kicking off Jan. 18 (only to be tailed by ‘The Voice‘), producers are taking a few verbal swipes at the competition. And why not? ‘Idol’ has nearly double the viewers of ‘X Factor,’ due to an 11-year brand.
There’s no one quite like Ryan Seacrest, which is precisely why FOX is trying so hard to keep him as the host of ‘American Idol.’ Seacrest’s $45 million contract is up for renewal, but it’s possible that he won’t be returning to run the hit singing competition.
It was Season 7 of American Idol that introduced us to David Archuleta. Then the battle went on and came down to David and David in the finals of American Idol that season. David Cook took home the prize and David Archuleta came in second. Although he has been keeping up with his music, he made a huge announcement at his concert in Salt Lake City, Utah on Monday night. He announced that he is becoming a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
It’s probably no surprise that Fox’s ‘American Idol’ tops the list for shows where it costs the most for companies to buy advertising. But it probably is shocking that the show giving them a run for their ad money isn’t another reality show or even ‘Two and a Half Men;’ it’s NBC’s ‘Sunday Night Football.’
“I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of ‘American Idol’ are back for the next season,” he told Seacrest, who happens to be the aforementioned “brilliant host” of ‘Idol.’
American Idol fans were shocked when they announced the new judges for the new and improved American Idol after Simon left the show. When they announced the replacements would be Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, I for one thought OK let's give them a try. I was shockingly surprised at how they judged and changed the whole outlook of Idol. Now that dynamic may be changing again.
