    Harmony2000, these kids & their parents are well aware of what they are getting themselves into. They are selling out for a chance at the big kahuna of a career. If they are truly talented, they'll survive & thrive. If they aren't then they should get treated just like everybody else.

    Having said that, I wish they had changed the minimum age to 18.

    The likes of NKOTB are cute for about 5 milliseconds at a certain age but the kids who like them soon graduate from the bubblegum crap - Bieber, Swift, Cyrus an their ridiculous ilk - to the real stuff. The Jonas Brothers used to be big for about 10 minutes or so a couple of years ago. So was High School Musical, the imaginary Hannah Montana, Hanson, N'Sync and countless others who are absolutely nowhere today. They're basically consumables for 12 year olds for a period of about a year or less because that's how long these acts are cool to a tween or a teen after which they're yesterday's news. My tween daughter used to love Hannah Montana but would not be caught dead listening to either Miley, Swift or Bieber today. She calls their stuff stupid with "ewww" being the predominant reaction to them.

    So, for Idol to be looking for these kind of ephemeral, juvenile pop products - none of whom can actually sing - is ridiculous. However, I do enjoy ridiculous so I'm going to have a fine time watching Idol as it gasps desperately for its last pathetic breath. Luckily, earplugs are cheap.

    "Auditions are about to start in your city" commercial during SYTYCD.

    Without any idea of who will be sitting in the judges chairs, that's very interesting.

    The judges aren't there for the initial auditions anyway.

    Ugh. Haven't the tweens found a new idol to go crazy over? Their attention spans usually don't last that long, he should be old news and in Celebrity Rehab by now. Make.Him.Go.Away.

    Or maybe Huggies? That jean diaper commercial is kinda cute.

    Oh, that is disappointing to hear. This idea of lowering the age limit seems like a bad idea for many, many reasons. I would think that raising it to 30 is better. After all if they hadn't raised it way back when, we may have never gotten to hear the talent of Bo Bice.

    Congrats to Katie! I happily stand corrected.

    I think these auditions will put a lot of pressure on the powers that be. There will be rampant speculation and I don't think the AI crew is disciplined enough to keep this a secret. I've already heard reports that Bret Michaels is overstating AI's interest in him. The same happened with Howard Stern a few months back. We know Elton John will not be a judge. Leaky leaky!
