Randy Jackson: I’m the Mean Judge This Season
As ‘American Idol’ counts down to its return next week, judge Randy Jackson acknowledges that this is definitely a make-or-break season. However, he’s very optimistic about what he calls ‘Season 10: The Remix.’
With judges Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi gone from the hit show, a sea of buzz surrounds high-profile newcomers Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. Jackson insists the new cast had “instant” chemistry during their first dinner meeting, but says there will still be plenty of bickering on the panel this season. In fact, according to Jackson, he and Tyler have already had several spats on set.
“When you’re passionate about a singer, you want them to succeed. Sometimes you’re really pulling for someone, and another judge just doesn’t get it,” he tells PopEater backstage at MTV’s ‘The Seven.’

‘American Idol’s’ 10 biggest mistakes
As “American Idol” prepares to celebrate its 10th birthday, it is pulling out all the stops to remind everyone why the show has been such a game-changer in the television and music industry. We see a parade of former winners and successful also-rans talking about how the competition made them stars, and judges speaking solemnly about how wonderful “Idol” is and how they plan to carry on the tradition.
Believe me, I like my birthday to be all about the cake and ice cream too, but birthdays are also a reminder that I’m another year older and it’s also nice to have friends who remind me that that I’ve made plenty of screwups as well as successes.

Top 10 things ‘Idol’ judges need to do this season
“American Idol” is in transition this season, as the show heads into its 10th year. Last season, it said a tearful goodbye to Simon Cowell and gave a cheery slap on the back and plane ticket home to Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi. With Randy Jackson the only holdover, it’s up to the new blood to revitalize the flagging Fox ratings juggernaut.
Can Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez combine with Jackson to form a trio that can rival the glory days of the Randy-Paula-Simon juggernaut and hold off the charge from the increasingly unafraid other networks? Only time will tell, but here are 10 things I hope to see from the new team as it prepares to make its debut in season 10.

How Simon Cowell is rigging Britain’s Got Talent by ruthlessly targeting established acts he knows audiences will lap up
Acts which have been invited on to the show are promised they won’t have to queue like the rest of hoi-polloi — and are given guaranteed time slots.
Others are told they don’t even have to do a ‘first’ audition in front of producers (contrary to appearances, every single act is seen by producers before going in front of the judges), but can simply send in a video showreel instead.
One up-and-coming magician, who asked not to be named, was sent an email from a researcher inviting him on the show which said: ‘To make applications easier for people — especially at this busy time of year — we’re now accepting showreels in lieu of an initial audition.
