American Idol returns with just one original host, can the once #1 rated reality show last?
Ready or not, they are here!!
With so many changes in store I’m hoping this season to feel like a whole new Idol experience and hopefully it’ll be a good one!
Golden Globe-nominated actress, platinum-selling recording artist, movie producer and entrepreneur Jennifer Lopez and multiple Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steven Tyler, the frontman of Aerosmith“ the best-selling American rock band of all time “ have joined American Idol as judges. Lopez and Tyler will join returning Idol judge Randy Jackson for the 10th anniversary season.
In addition, Jimmy Iovine, chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, co-founder of Beats Audio and one of the world’s most successful and prolific music producers, will join American Idol as an in-house mentor. Throughout the season, Idol will go behind-the-scenes to feature Iovine working with and lending his expertise to the contestants as they compete to become the next American Idol.
