After 10 years, American Idol is shaking things up in a big way. About time I say, needs to be done. New judges and everything. The Hollywood Reporter has outlined the 8 Big Changes coming to AI. Of these eight, I'm most excited the contestants won't be limited solely to cover songs. They'll also be working with established producer/songwriters as mentors. And finalists will be able to get their songs released while the show's still current. One of the hardest parts of Idol has been the wait (over the summer, into fall!) to hear the winner's new album.
What do you think of the changes to American Idol?
