American Idol May Tweak the Voting System And The Judges’ Panel

Even though the ratings are down for “American Idol,” it is still the most watched show on T.V. Fox is saying there may be some changes on the horizon.

The president of the company that owns the rights to “Idol” says that they’re thinking about changing the show’s voting system. We don’t have any specifics yet, but apparently he feels the recent winners of “Idol” are all of the same type.

He says,

“They’re being called WGWGs . . . White Guys With Guitars.”

The last five winners could fit in that category … Phillip Phillips, Scotty McCreery, Lee DeWyze, Kris Allen and David Cook. But, it’s the fans that are voting. It’s not like the judges are picking the winners. So it’s not really the shows fault. And how can the tweak the voting to make it reflect something different? How certain are we that the fans votes are being counted?? Hmm…this conspiracy has been around for a while. Weren’t they going to tweak the system this time last year too?

He also says there could be a shake-up on the judges’ panel. The ratings did go up when they initially brought in Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez two seasons ago. But, with Jen going on tour during taping, who knows what will happen. I say, BRING BACK PAULA!!!

If you were one of the producers on the show, what would you do to change things up?  What would you want to see “Idol” do?
