As Season 12 of American Idol draws to a close, the Top 4 took on One-Hit Wonders for inspiration, as well as perhaps the last chance in their young careers to pick whatever they want, featuring the music of Donna Summer, Julie London, Samantha Sang, Procol Harum, Deline Dion, Jessie J, Drake, and Susan Tedeschi.
Here’s a new promo for American Idol Season 12 where Randy Jackson says the show is “the gold standard” and “the Picasso” of reality singing competitions. Are you kidding me?
Wasn’t it just a few months ago that his job was in jeopardy? I had to go out of my way to campaign for him! Some people at FOX wanted him out because they wanted a change. Because the so called “gold standard” wasn’t working anymore.
Randy Jackson says that American Idol is the only show that “continuously has stars that are produced ” and predicted that in season 12 they are going to find “that pop star” again. Randy also weighs in on the new additions to the Idol judging panel in this phone interview with On Air With Ryan Seacrest.
Listen to the interview here:
THR reports that Randy Jackson will be staying on the American Idol season 12 judging panel after all. The change was reportedly instigated by 19E and Freemantle abandoning negotiations with Enrique Iglesias as a potential fourth judge.
The two have remained friends even after Simon left American Idol. It’s interesting that they would be talking now — is Randy’s job in peril? I hope not! Save Randy Jackson! He’s the heart and soul of American Idol!
I really hope not! Randy Jackson leaving the show will be the biggest blow from these judge’s announcements so far. Randy has been the anchor of the show since Day 1 along with Ryan Seacrest and him leaving either on his own or getting fired will be a terrible mistake. The show needs him now more than ever.
SAVE RANDY JACKSON! I want to see Randy and Adam Lambert together in the judging panel!
What do you guys think?
I can’t with this idiot anymore.
Last night, before Skylar Laine was voted off American Idol, Randy Jackson said “this is the best top 5 they’ve ever had on the show”… are you kidding me?
This Top 5 is one of the worst. Obviously, Randy has not been paying attention for 11 years.
The Top 5 of Season 4, 5, 7, 8 and even 2 are easily better than Season 11.
