BIG NEWS from American Idol for Season 10 today. Not only do we get 2 new judges, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and Jennifer Lopez of Obscurity; not only do we get Jimmy Iovine chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records acting as an in-house mentor to contestants; but Jimmy will be getting some assistance from one Polow Da Don and Timbaland-please-no-more-dance-songs Mosley!
"We're going to try every week to bring the artist along and really give them some input," Iovine said. "Nigel [Lythgoe] has been coaching me on how to do that in the course of the show. Timbaland and Polow [Da Don] are here to help; every week we're going to have the best producers in the world helping these artists. Contestants are going to have to show improvement every week."
"We are no longer going to get the country singer to sing rock," Lythgoe said. "We-and Jimmy-going to get them to stay in the genre they belong." The music choices will vary more by decade this year, he said, as opposed to changing up themes entirely."
Timbo doin' it BIG! Get ready for many more Timbo productions coming soon!
