With the heat stepping up with more singing competitions coming over the horizon American Idol singing coaches and judge line-up is set for a major shake up.
The American Idol judges table could look very different this season. Kristin Dos Santos has the scoop.
American Idol singing coach and judges shake up
Sources confirm exclusively that along with Adam Lambert , Idol‘s big bosses are also considering some other notable names to join the cast, including: Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry and (frequent A.I. mentor) will.i.am.
Now that is an interesting line up. Will they all be at the table at the same time? Will they need a bigger table?
So how many new judges will there be? And who’s most likely to get the gig?
“No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get,” one Idol insider tells me. “We won’t know if Randy [Jackson] and Steven [Tyler] are returning until they see who else is on board.”
So what about good old Jen, JLO?
According to sources, the American Idol higher-ups all agree they want Jennifer Lopez back, however, as we previously reported, the megastarisn’t planning to return. And while we are told Idol‘s big bosses are fans of Randy and Steven, they also would like to breathe some new (possibly younger) life into the series to compete with X Factor, which recently cast Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
Is it time to get the boxing gloves out?
It’s possible there may be more than one new AI judge this fall.
Auditions for season 12 of American Idol are currently underway—the producers’ rounds, with no judges in attendance. Today, they are in Chicago with three more cities to go. So the clock is ticking on finalizing the cast!
Is this the last time we see the judges table like this:
