Dear Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler:
Run. Run as fast as you can.
The producers of “American Idol” are on a sinking ship, and they want you to pull them ashore.
Love all my water metaphors? That’s what you use when a show has — wait for it — JUMPED THE SHARK!
Why can’t the producers just admit that AI has reached its natural end? Simon Cowell could see it. Audiences can see it coming, too; that’s why the numbers have been declining over time.
Don’t judge the program by the number of yahoos who show up for the auditions. There will always be people who want to be discovered.
The producers should create a new program that will generate some excitement and spend their time and energy on that…instead of trying to revive “American Idol” with musical stars that are nearing or past their prime.
(No offense intended.)
Continue with your fabulous careers. Goodness knows you don’t need AI.
