American Idol is dead set on four judges for the upcoming season because it worked so well the last time, presumably to compete with newer and hipper singing competitions like The Voice and The X Factor, so there is still one vacant spot.
Still, the end might be near, because Enrique Iglesias is currently sitting on an offer from American Idol for about $4 million. Coincidentally, Enrique just wrapped up a tour with former Idol judge Jennifer Lopez.
Kris Allen is the new American Idol, though he seemed shocked at the annoucement of his name. Every poll that I viewed indicated that Adam Lambert would be crowned the newest American Idol. Interestingly, they were wrong. Over 100 million people voted last night.
The night was full of entertainment and wonderful performances ranging from the “Black Eyed Peas“, Fergie, Queen Latifah, Lionel Richie, previous AI contestants and so on. I really loved Lil Rounds’ and Queen Latifah’s performance together. The Queen looked great with her new hair do. The Black Eyed Peas with Zebra Man Group also performed “Boom Boom Pow.” Kris Allen and Keith Urban performed “Kiss A Girl.” Allison Iraheta and Cyndi Lauper gave a brilliant performance. AI Judge, Kara DioGuardi also performed with “Bikini girl”
This ends the eight season of American Idoluntil next year. Good luck to Allen as he works on his new projects.
