'American Idol' Afraid of Putting Two Women at the Judges' Table Again

AI12_NY-Auditions-Day1_0105.rc
With Dr. Luke dropping out of American Idol due to a conflict of interest, FOX is scrambling to fill the third and final slot at the judges' table before the show begins taping next week. Right now they have their eyes on Harry Connick Jr., even though The Hollywood Reporter says they really want a record executive to balance out the talents of Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban. But hey, that's okay! Connick Jr. will do, anyway, all because he happens to be a man.

According to the report:

While Fox was said to be somewhat cool to the Connick idea, sources say there is reluctance to add another woman to the mix given friction last season between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, which didn’t play well with the show’s key older female demographic.
Great!

Anyway, if they can't find a third judge before next week, season 13 could wind up being delayed. Which, if you think about it, might be the best thing to happen to Idol in a very, very long time.

    Presidential Model-M@NEY conversations with 50cent on VH1 MY LIFE is said to be written for M@NEY. So is it a Thank you that the two are talking about music in The ROCK The Big 10 is full of the same sort of stuff that made 50 famous: Grisly tough-talk, squirmy sex-talk, triumphant money-talk. And even though his ear for hooks isn’t what it was in 2003, it’s still way sharper than that of just about anyone else in rap. Musically, the tape returns 50 to his thumping synths-and-samples comfort zone..M@NEY Presidential Model now asking to within his music ..while working in The Rock ..My Life -50cent & Economic values are much like the song..First you have an absence,minus infinity,i.e zero consumption..I know way over my head too..but the Aggregated market good cann't wait nore can I-M@NEY..In this Economic Boom

    Jlo hasn’t been confirmed as an Idol judge, Fox chairman Kevin Reilly has only confirmed that Keith Urban as an Idol judge, it’s JLo and her management are the ones that are keeping this rumor alive, sources are saying they don't want Jlo, they already had her on season 10 & 11, and had the worst TV ratings in Idol history, that's why they were replace with Mariah & Nicki for season 12, there are still looking for judges for Idol 13, Jlo is what Idol doesn’t want, someone with a big bag of bad publicity (performing to Dictators for years for millions), and someone that’s going to use the show to self promote herself, in her music and movies or anything she doing at the moment, if you really wanted her, they would already have confirmed her weeks ago?
