Jennifer Hudson: “American Idol should bow out gracefully”
In an interview with Celebuzz, Jennifer Hudson said that American Idol should “allow itself to go out on top… and gracefully.”
What a novel idea! If FOX decides to end American Idol this season, then they can truly claim that they have made stars — without their legacy being tarnished with diminishing returns year after year.
Hopefully it happens — so Idol can go out with a bang as a legend! It’s been a shadow of its old self for many years now and it looks like it’s not going to get better with some of the audience reaction to Nicki Minaj on the panel.
Speaking to Celebuzz at a Los Angeles event promoting her new film, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, the Oscar winner said that the program “should allow itself to go out on top…and gracefully.”
“Everything has its time,” said the Dreamgirls star, who said she still has a soft spot for the show that first introduced her to the public.
“American Idol has changed the face of television,” she said. “So, not everyone can say that. And it’s always been a phenomenon. I’m proud to have come from American Idol, so I just say, go out on top.”
