It looks like “American Idol” is locking down it’s judges for it’s new season on it’s new network, ABC.
Kelly Clarkson has already started to clear her schedule for filming, according to TMZ. ABC is apparently very interested in her becoming a judge and I think the AI audience would really love that too considering she was the first winner ever.
A lot of things regarding the show are still up in the air. For instance, they are undecided if the show will air once or twice a week. I personally think twice might be what killed the show on FOX. Condense it into a one night show and people might not feel like it’s taking up so much of their time. With so many other shows on TV, it’s nice to not have the commitment of the same show 2 nights a week. Also, reports are saying Ryan Seacrest will almost certainly be the host. I don’t think it would be the same without him. I’m actually pretty excited about the show coming back.
