It looks like this is going to be the year of the Reality Singing Show Reboot. First X-Factor announced new judges, then The Voice says they're done with C-Lo and X-Tina and now American Idol is saying they've picked up Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban. Brendan Spaar wonders if this new panel isn't a move to mimic the demographics of The Voice. You have a pop "star" (Nicki Minaj), a country star (Keith Urban) and a R&B "star" (Randy Jackson). It seems to work on the voice. It remains to be seen if this same formula will inject some life back into the rather boring and predictable American Idol show when it returns next January.
