American Idol 14 Spoilers: Turn it Up at the House of Blues

American Idol 14 Spoilers: Turn it Up at the House of Blues

We told you about “The Showcase” at the House of Blues back in November. It’s the new American Idol 14 round where the Top 48 would SING for a spot in the Top 24.

Now, the tidbit is no longer a spoiler! American Idol let the cat out of the bag yesterday when it tweeted a photo from House of Blues where the round is still underway.  The audience was filled with press, and also included a VERY SPECIAL guest–Rupert Murdoch, chairman and CEO of News Corp. THE BIG CHEESE was in the house!

When news broke that Big Machine Records CEO, Scott Borchetta was taking Randy Jackson’s place as mentor, I saw it as a sign that TPTB still cared about Idol. Murdoch taking time out of his busy schedule to sit in the audience yesterday is yet another sign that FOX and superiors have not abandoned the show that literally put the network on the map.

American Idol also encouraged contestants, both past and present, staff members and more to tweet the new “Turn Up For Idol” TV promo.  Former  Idols who got in on the fun included Kris Allen, Danny Gokey, Candice Glover, Fantasia Barrino, Taylor Hicks, and more.
