American Idol Returns Tonight With Judges J Lo & Steven Tyler
It was announced in September last year that Jennifer Lopez and rocker Steven Tyler will be joining American Idol as judges for the 10th season of the show, and tonight we finally get to see the two new judges in action. Jennifer and Steven will be joining Randy Jackson on the panel, and the biggest noticeable absence will be Simon Cowell who has quit the show.
Tonight’s show will feature auditions in Austin, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Nashville, New Orleans, San Francisco and East Rutherford. The rules of the show has also been altered slightly so contestants will be allowed to sell their own music as they progress to the later stages. Ryan Seacrest will return as presenter, and the show has planned many celebrity mentors who will coach the hopefuls at a later stage – including stars such as Timbaland and Alex Da Kid.
Jennifer Lopez spoke about her new role as judge:
“I think there are definitely better ways to get your point across [than being cruel], I’ve mentored on the show before, so I think people have seen that and kinda can feel how I’ll be — or maybe they’ll be surprised.”
New Americal Idol judge Jennifer Lopez has said that she won’t be a diva when it comes to her new role on the show. Reports have already said that Jennifer was making diva-like demands before the contract was even signed, but Jennifer denies this, stating at a press conference for the show:
“I’m used to it. I’m used to speculation, I wasn’t really worried about it. I was just looking forward to getting started.”
Jennifer joins Randy Jackson and Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler on the judging panel.
HOPE YOU GOT TO CATCH THE BEGINNING OF AMERICAN IDOL
This Season SHOULD be GOOD with JENNIFER!!
