Polly and I don’t watch much reality TV. We watch The Voice, The Sing-Off, America’s Got Talent, and occasionally So you Think you Can Dance. We used to watch The X Factor but lost interest when the show started becoming more about glitz and stage presence than the singing skill of the contestant. We watched American Idol for many years, but quit half way through last year. The constant drama between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj was a huge turn-off and we found that the talent level on The Voice was superior to that of American Idol.
During the off-season, America Idol underwent a complete overhaul. Jennifer Lopez was brought back as a judge, Keith Urban will return as a judge, and Harry Connick, Jr. was added as a new judge. The old producers were sent packing and Swedish Idol producer Pers Blankens was brought in to overhaul the show.
We plan to give American Idol a try this year. How about you? Will you be tuning in to American Idol this year?
