With the new season kicking off in less than 10 days, there is alot of speculation and even some controversy about Fox’s decision to do a complete overhaul with the judges of American Idol. The premiere is January 15, and everyone is wondering is the American Idol 2014 judges are the best or worst yet? The new line-up includes the return of Keith Urban, also the return of Jennifer Lopez, after her one year hiatus, and the all new Harry Connick Jr. Missing this year was original host and fan favorite, Randy Jackson. Randy announced 2013 was his last year as a judge, and he would step into a mentor role with helping the contestants. Host Ryan Seacrest will be returning this season.
American Idol judges in 2014 are not at all bickering, just frequently goofing off, and hardly ever acerbic to any contestant. But each of them is quite a “music authority” in his or her own right. Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr. Could they be the best set of judges to ever rule the AI panel? Leave it to the fans to show the answer in TV ratings for the premiere on Jan. 15.
This year’s newcomer, Harry Connick, Jr, has never been an American Idol judge, but he’s dished some of the best commentaries about the contestants on the show. He had been a mentor many times on the show. In fact, he was a mentor on Season 12. His fans love him for being such a big performer of standards and for being a good film actor, too.
So don’t miss the premiere on FOX on January 15th and let us know if the American Idol 2014 Judges are the best or worst yet?
