A regular commenter to this blog took an iCountUSA survey asking questions about potential American Idol judges for season 13. The potential panelists are: Producer, Pharrell Williams, Black-eyed Pea and The Voice UK coach, Will-i-am, singer, Grace Potter and Kimberly Perry from the Band Perry.
I’m not sure what their appearance on a survey means, exactly. But American Idol producers could be doing some due diligence prior to signing contracts and forking over the big bucks to a celebrity to sit on the panel. If they had surveyed LAST year, it would have quickly come to light what a polarizing figure, Nicki Minaj would be. Doing a little homework ahead of hiring is a good thing.
Now, I wish I could take this survey so I could have the opportunity to say NO NO NO NO to Wil.i.am. As far as the others are concerned, I don’t have an opinion yet. I am happy they potentially considering a behind the scenes guy like Pharrell for a spot.
What do you think? Do you like any of these choices?
I’m pulling this out from today’s daily headlines comment section, because it’s turned into a hot topic of conversation.
