I'm so cheesed out by that idol photo, mostly by Luke. I don't have a good feeling about the show's reincarnation prospects, and I've been an idol fan from the beginning. Prior to Witness, I was like oh, ok... wow... they got Katy Perry!?! But now I'm like... uh oh.
Had they nabbed Katy 4-5 years ago, and added some other current names with big personalities, it would probably have stayed on the air. I wish they had overhauled it sooner or just let it die. Now I feel like it's an uphill battle to make it work and last more than one season. There needs to be some unique/interesting chemistry between the judges, and I'm at a loss for what that might be with this crew.
I'll be watching and hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised. To its benefit, people love Dancing with the Stars, so cheesy isn't necessarily a bad thing. We'll see what happens.
