American Idol 2015 Cast Spoilers - The Judges
Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Jr. have all returned to American Idol as judges, just as Ryan Seacrest has returned as host. There are a few changes to the show this season, not including the loss of their Coca-cola sponsor, and even the judges don't fully know what's going to happen. Harry Connick Jr. told E! News: All we know is we have one night to listen and be told who will not be there the next week, which is very exciting because it has never been like that before. And the people who are producing the show are really geniuses as creating moments on television. This is just another chapter in how American Idol is reinventing itself. And, even though the show has down-sized a bit, just as Dancing With the Stars did, it doesn't mean it's still not a great success. Plus, viewers are loving the judges. NJ.com writes: The judges' chemistry has never been better. Jazz songsmith Harry Connick Jr., who returns for his second season has taken on the Simon Cowell curmudgeon role, but with a better sense of humor and guidance. Jennifer Lopez (4th season) plays supportive good cop and Keith Urban (3rd season) is the whimsical Australian, swaying in his seat and singing along. Together the trio are likable often legitimately funny. The grouping makes much more sense than that Nicki Minaj-Mariah Carey debacle in 2012.
