That is another show that needs a revamp!
And yes, I agree that 12 years is a long run and I think they are done. I do think it is possible to do a complete overhaul as I suggested :lol but it would have to be very different. We are all tired of the format.
I also wonder if his X factor isn't doing that well because TV is over saturated with talent shows?
They should only allow 1 vote per phone number, per FB account, per Twitter account, etc. They should bring back the wild card round where America chooses not the judges (Clay Aiken comes to mind). They should give everyone equal facetime. They should stop putting through contestants with sob stories and afflictions but mediocre singers (i.e. Lazaro Arbos, Scott MacIntyre). Forget the judges save, instead let judges select who to save from the 2 least vote getters every week.
As for the judges, I like HCjr, Ben Folds, Jewel, and Sheryl Crow but if they have to think out of the box then I agree that former AI contestants would be great. The following will most likely accept the stint:
and to make it more interesting.....Sanjaya!
This is the part I like. However, I am so used to theme/tribute nights, I can't think outside that box at the moment.Quote:
he show's format will also change. Its look will be redesigned and the dated tribute nights will be a thing of the past. But the show's trademark audition episodes will continue.
I would tune in to see Clay if he were judging.
I also think the show needs a bit more of a rougher edge. This season was mainly same old same old with ballads...I always liked when people really stepped outside the norm and did something new and interesting. You couldn't wait to tune in to see what was going to come up next. But after the same theme nights year after year and hearing a Whitney song for the zillioneth time, it got boring. Add to that the judges this season and I had no interest in watching it.
Please bring judges who are not afraid to give an opinion...maybe Jimmy should also judge? Or some of the mentors who really gave good critiques - Jamie Foxx? Connick?
Love the idea of Melissa Ethredge or someone from another genre...keep things UPBEAT! Too many churchy performances - challenge them with songs that might sell now.
