Deadline reports everybody’s favorite singing competition has been renewed for a 14th season. The previous years had seen a decline in the ratings, but there apparently was never a question about whether or not the hot reality show would return for another season. Ryan Seacrest is also reportedly in negotiations to return to the show as its host.
For three years American Idol had alternated with The X Factor on their schedules (both being on Fox), but now that Simon Cowell’s X Factor has been canceled, there is a possibility that Fox will choose to schedule in another hot, new reality show to fill that particular fall slot.
We also can’t help but wonder: Are they going to bring back the same judges, or are we going to be seeing some new celebs in the judges chairs? Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and newbie Harry Connick, Jr., got any comment on the matter?
