In the latest American Idol 12 promo, Randy Jackson calls American Idol the “gold standard” of singing competitions and then follows up his statement with a namechecks a few of the show’s shing stars.
“This show has truly permeated the whole world of entertainment.” Randy says in his typical hyperbolic fashion.
“We are the original,” he boasts, “We are the Picasso. You can try to copy, but never duplicate.”
Well. He’s got a point.
