There will be a little less American Idol on FOX this season. The Thursday results show will be cut from an hour to 30 minutes. The results show has been an hour since the program began in 2002.
With Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez, and Keith Urban as judges, season 13 of American Idol will debut on January 15th and 16th with a pair of two-hour episodes. Once the in-studio competition begins, the Thursday episode will be 30 minutes.
Ryan Seacrest is returning as host and former judge Randy Jackson will now be an in-house mentor to contestants.
What do you think? Do you plan on watching Idol this season? What do you think of the group of judges? A good choice?
