Harvey Levin of TMZ tweeted what could be a very significant spoiler this afternoon:
I know a bunch of people at Idol…I think it could actually work. I hear Steven Tyler is the star, Jennifer Lopez is the Alpha Dog…and there will be 10 finalists chosen by viewers, and then each judge will get one pick… so there will be 13.
Actually, this doesn’t surprise me, because according to some of the earlier spoilers from Joe’s Place Blog, the producers were toying with expanding the number of finalists to as many as 15.
If true, I wonder if the producers will try to freak out the 13th finalist like they did Anoop Desai back in Season 8. That’s the last time Idol featured a Top 13. Hee.
What do you think? Is 13 a lucky number?
I don’t think it matters. The changes and the tweaks the producers are making to Idol this year are all well and good. The Powers That Be only have to remember ONE thing in order to create a show folks will want to tune into week and after week….
KEEP THE FOCUS ON THE CONTESTANTS!!!!
Cast the show with INTERESTING, compelling talent and you’ll have us hooked again…
Am I right peeps?
