Future 'Idol' Contestants To Make Music Videos

Changes are on the way for American Idol‘s 10th season – and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe is sharing all of the details!

Here’s what to expect, via TV Guide:

  • Contestants will make music videos, promote themselves and work with a band and dancers for a showstopping performance similar to what you’d see at an awards show.
  • There will not be a Top 24 round this year – rounds will start at the top 12!
  • Theme weeks will center around decades instead of particular artists – contestants will enlist in the help of Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine as their in-house mentor.
  • Idol will be back on FOX beginning Wednesday, January 12!

    I cant stand AI and DTWS ! My two best friends fight so much because of these shows. So bad that they cuss each other out and not talk to each other till the next episode.

    I think it is a keen idea and addition to the show. Without Simon, they must “recreate” American Idol for it’s 10th season and bring something new and different to the table…since music videos are a dying part of the industry also, I feel it’s a cool idea to put that concept back into light. Kudos.
