And aside to the rating drop American Idol season 12 receive a lot of criticism. Most were saying that this season was "manipulated", has been quite predictable, lame and boring episodes and of course too much drama on the panel. As for me, I was in favor of Candice Glover being the champion, her vocal prowess sure deserves the title, what I didn't like is the show really change nothing, yeah we have new judges but the performance of the finalist and the theme used was kinda the same and quite boring unlike the previous seasons.
Well, as for the upcoming season we can again, expect a major change on the panel as all of the judges would be replaced including the longest judge idol ever had, Randy Jackson.
As early as now, a lot of rumors were spreading of who would be sitting on the panel.As of now, the only confirmed judge was an American Idol alumnus, Jennifer Hudson, having a Grammy, an Oscar and a Golden globe she sure has what it takes to be there, and I also think it's about time for an alumnus to judge.There's a possibility that Keith Urban would come back for another season, and he said he was wiling to do so. Another rumors saying that Jennifer Lopez who had been a judge of AI for two consecutive years could also be back on the panel however, based on the interviews she had, she seems unwilling yet open for possibilities. Aside Jennifer Hudson a lot of American Idol alumni were also on the list of possible judges such as Adam Lambert, , Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken and Carrie Underwood.
Regardless of who ever will judge, this upcoming season would definitely be a different one, better or worse? that's what were gonna find out next year.
