‘American Idol’ trying to re-vamp itself now that Simon Cowell is gone

HollywoodNews.com: “American Idol” suffered to pull in amazing ratings this past season and with the departure of judge Simon Cowell, it’s safe to say that the show is in trouble. Apparently, the producers feel the same way because they are trying to do anything to re-vamp the show and keep it relevant.

The show has just lowered the age minimum from 16 to 15 years of age, reports NY Mag. They report that an executive producer stated, “A lot of young, talented people are now seeking careers and representation before they turn 16. Lowering the age limit allows us to tap into this talent pool.”

It looks like they’re in desperate need of a handful of Justin Bieber and Greyson Chance look a-likes to keep the show afloat. Maybe they should just turn to Youtube for some help.

    With Simon gone, there is nothing American Idol can do to stay afloat, and lowering the age limit in hopes of finding the next Justin Bieber or Grayson Chance is only going to make it into an even bigger travesty. I don’t expect it to even survive one season.
