Short Bits on Season 6
The powers-that-be promise a “big event” mid-way through the upcoming season of American Idol. Says producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz, “If there’s one thing that makes American Idol so big, it’s a huge event…something we’re working on is a big-event show sometime in the middle of the season, something that will blow America away.”
To be honest with you, after 5 seasons, I don’t think anything they could cook up would “blow me away.”
I’m thinkin’ they’re a little nervous that the ratings will drop. Promise a stunt and folks will tune in? If you ask me, it’s all about the kids. If they find a cast of contestants with the right chemistry, they’re golden.
TMZ.com claims to have “exclusively” obtained a script and production schedule for Season 6. Here’s their big Hollywood “scoop”: The kids will be put into singing groups and judged on their performances. Now, that’s a bulletin. Uh huh…
More “scoop”: Contestants were, “asked to perform various musical numbers, including songs by the Bee Gees, Beach Boys, The Supremes and The Four Tops. OMG Stop the Presses! Heh.
Season 6 premiers with a two-hour audition show Tuesday, January 16 and Wednesday January 17.
