American Idol is still the most-watched show on TV, but it lost a lot of ground this past season. And, Fox has said there may be some changes on the horizon. Now, the president of the company that owns the rights to Idol says that they’re thinking about “overhauling the show’s voting system.”
There aren’t any specifics yet, but apparently he feels the recent type of Idol winner has become stale. 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.
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.
