American idol is going into a full Reconstruction at the judges table for next season, at first they were just rumors but it is now official, JLo, Steven Tyler, and Randy Jackson have all announced that they will not be returning as judges next season. I for one am glad that Steven Tyler is leaving he wasn't much of a good judge anyways, as for Jlo it was to be expected with all the movies, shows, concerts, and not to mention shes in every other commercial on TV. so she didn't have time for American idol, good riddance Mrs Lopez. Randy Jackson after 11 seasons with American idol is finally stepping down as a judge BUT he will be a mentor so i wonder about jimmy Irvine's future?? So now the only judge right now is Mariah Carey which i have high hopes for she seems like the perfect replacement for the female spot. there are other names floating around like Nick Jonas (Please god no!), Keith urban, Pharrel Williams, Adam Lambert, Nicki Minaj, and some others that i don't know about. My opinion would be to bring in Adam Lambert. As for who will take Randy Jackson's place as the "head cheerleader" ...Kanye West? LOL. One thing i know for sure is that the new judges are either going to draw in more viewers, lets face it if some one like Katy Perry is on American idol wouldn't you tune in to watch her? OR the judges turn out to be a complete disaster and people just get tired of American idol no matter how many things they change.
