The eighth season of American Idol already has hadtwo changes with the exit of excutive producer, Nigel Lythgoe and the addition of a fourth judge, Kara DioGuardi, but Simon Cowell is promising that more changes are stillon the horizon.
Simon will become more involved this year with the show now that executive producer Nigel Lythgoe has left, but he assures us that he isn’t going to flaunt his title as he would feel uncomfortable doing so as he is on it. He has however stated that there will be a few changes this season.
One of the changes he is promising is that this season there will be people on the show that have personality. He stated that last season’s group, “never showed us or you their true personality. I mean, in parts they were like robots,” he said to Reality TV World.
He commented, “I’d like to see the middle stages of the show change because I think we can make them better. I think we can make the end part of the show much more exciting than we’ve done before. We’ve got some ideas which are definitely going to give the show a little bit more jeopardy than we’ve had in the past. You’re definitely, definitely going to see a change for the show and I think it will be an improvement. I feel confident.”
Simon would also like to see the show be more interesting and controversial than last season and it may be on its way with the news of the pajama party he had recently with Paula and the newest judge Kara.
