Forgive me, but I didn't realize that American Idol was still going to be churning out seasons.  I used to be addicted to the original talent showcase…and not just for the crazy first round auditions.  On that note, do we know what William Hung is doing right now?

Once the show started trading out judges like Housewives trade out Hermes bags and cocktails, it seemed to be on a constant decline.  My dawg Randy Jackson, the only original judge remaining, decided to cut his losses after the most recent season, and his counterparts have been quitting left and right.  Keith Urban appears to be the only one who has any interest remaining on the sinking ship.  

However–and I never saw this coming–there are loud rumblings that the show is in talks to bring back a former judge who I'd actually tune in to see.  I never gave much thought to Jenny from the Block, but I'll readily admit that I really enjoyed Jennifer Lopez on Idol.  If she returns to judging, maybe I'll return to watching!

We all know that Randy Jackson has "yo yo yo, dawg'ed" his way out of the thirteenth season of American Idol, and rumors are swirling that Nicki Minaj is right on his heels.  So who plans to stick around?

Well, Keith Urban wants to judge another round provided the show isn't canceled after jumping the shark a few years ago.  That's the kind of commitment I like to see from my superstars turned reality critics!  I wonder when Mariah Carey will weigh in with her two cents…

So apparently there's room for one more at the judge's table alongside Keith Urban and Mariah Carey.  Not only is Randy Jackson hitting the road, it's now being reported that Nicki Minaj won't be returning for another season of American Idol.  Are people still watching?

I'll admit, I used to be obsessed with AI, but I couldn't tell you a recent winner.  I did, however, name every last judge for a question last week at my local pizza place's trivia night.  Blogging comes in handy all the time!  It seems that I'm going to be forced to remember even more as the revolving door of panelists continues to…well…revolve.

American Idol returns January 22!

The popular show released a preview of what’s to come during Game 4 of the World Series letting us know, without question, all of last year’s judges: Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson, and Jennifer Lopez will be returning. Along with debonair host with the most, Ryan Seacrest!

Unlike the cantankerous behavior of former judging panels these judges are the best of friends on camera. “They’re like my brothers and they drive me crazy like brothers, too,” Jennifer described of Steven and Randy. “But we love each other, which is why we’ve become like a family.” Well, as family I wish somebody would talk to Jennifer about her on-set wardrobe! It was a standout last season – and not in a good way.

And since it’s another season without Simon Cowell to be the blunt voice of reason, Jennifer is assuring us this year the judges are “a little tougher on everybody.” Oooohh… good! No more constant praise – we want to see some snark!

Jennifer tells PEOPLE that being too nice wasn’t necessarily the way to go. “Because of last season and the standard that we set, it’s easy to go, ‘Is he as good as even our top 24 from last year?’ ” I guess Jenny has to earn that reported $20M she is getting paid to sit on the judges panel this season.

However, she is positive the talent pool is better than ever with many amazing voices to wow both the judges and the fans alike! “It’s not like you find people just like that, but the ones that we found, we know are very special,” she declared.

The preview clip is below!

The final 2 battle has been set on American IdolCrystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze are the last two standing and will battle each other for the “American Idol” title next week.

With over 47 million votes cast, eliminated last night was Casey James, a native of Forth Worth, Texas. “I never thought I’d get this far,” said Casey to Ryan Seacrest. “But to me, it’s like winning $10 million in the lottery and $100 million in the lottery. It’s so much more than I expected, so it can’t be bad.”

Lee was the first to be announced safe last night, which was no surprise judging by his amazing performance of Leonard Cohen’s classic “Hallelujah” on Monday night.  A performance which moved both the judges and the audience.

And while Crystal, 24, has been the front runner all season, Lee, 23, is steadily catching up. Judge Randy Jackson said Wednesday that Lee had “blossomed beyond belief” since the start of the season.

Next week is the two-part finale during which the 2010 “American Idol” will be crowned live on May 26, and will win a recording contract.

Michael Lynche found himself the latest hopeful to be eliminated from American Idol on Wednesday night.

The 26-year-old St. Petersburg, Fla. native also known as Big Mike was touted one of the early favorites to win the show. However his numerous appearances in the bottom two made his elimination not so surprising.  According to Ryan Seacrest, almost 37 million votes were cast this week, the most this season.

“It’s been unbelievable, man,” he said. “I just sit here right now and I think, ‘I wasn’t even supposed to be here.’ Thank God for the judges saving me, I got to spend more time here, and be with the people, perform for my wife, you know? It’s all good, man.”

Michael had performed Michael Jackson’s “Will You Be There” on Tuesday’s movie-themed performance night.

And this brings up to the final three.  Casey James, Lee DeWyze, and Crystal Bowersox now have a one in three chance of winning a $1 million recording contract. The three will also be filmed visiting their home towns and their fans next week.

American Idol Siobhan Magnus

Despite being an early front runner, Siobhan Magnus is the latest singer to be eliminated from American Idol.

The quirky 20-year-old Massachusetts native found herself in the bottom three with Casey James and Michael Lynche, despite receiving praises from the judges Tuesday night for her rendition of Shania Twain’s ‘Any Man of Mine.’ She was the lowest vote-getter out of the 33 million votes cast via phone calls and text messages from across the nation.

Siobhan showed little emotion at being voted off, saying she had done her best before launching her farewell performance of “Think.”

And just like that, we are down to the final 5 on American Idol with Crystal Bowersox being the only female left on the show.

Harry Connick Jr. will be appearing on the show next week to mentor the remaining finalists for a Sinatra themed week.

And then there were seven.  Two of American Idol‘s nine remaining finalists saw their dreams come to an end last night during the dramatic double elimination show.

The double elimination came as a result of the judges saving Michael Lynche, who received the fewest votes last week. Andrew Garcia, the 24-year-old musician from Moreno, Calif, was the first to go.  Andrew’s elimination was not much of a surprise as he failed to impress this judges this week with his Elvis rendition of “Hound Dog.”

“I’m still happy.  Thank you guys.  I mean, I appreciate everything and I’m glad I’m here, I’m glad I’ve been through what I’ve been through,” said Andrew.

Next to go was 17-year-old high school student Katie Stevens. “It was the best,” said Katie said of her American Idol experience. “[I'll talk] about all the amazing people I met, the amazing experience that this was,” she added when asked what she’ll tell her friends when she returns home.
