After almost ten years on the air and churning out some very successful chart toppers, some experts are saying that it’s best if “American Idol” say it’s final good-bye. After the news broke that both judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez will not be returning for another season, some people can’t help but ask: will the show survive without them?
Richard Rushfield over at Celebuzz seems to think that it’s time to switch the channel on “American Idol.” He explains:
What has been the obvious answer — bring in some glamor via the judges’ table — seems to have run its course. J.Lo and Steven Tyler gave Idol an unexpected bump when they first appeared and the curiosity factor brought new viewers in. But once the novelty wore off, the show was stuck with judges who seemed more concerned with preening, protecting their nice guy images and promoting their outside careers then they were — as Simon Cowell had done — about injecting real drama into the television show. Further, as far as glamorous youth-oriented judges go, Idol will have a very hard time beating the Britney/Demi duo joining X Factor this fall.
I kind of have to agree with him. With other hit shows like “The X Factor” and “The Voice” it’s hard to keep up with all of these singing competition shows. What do you think? Can “American Idol” survive yet another season?
