A Major News Announcement Coming Soon...

In an interview with (Thanks to Derek for passing this on to me.), Executive Producer Nigel Lythoe said to stay tuned for a major news announcement in the next couple of weeks.

Lythgoe promised it would be the "biggest thing to happen to 'Idol' in five years." He went on to say that it "does include 'American Idol' and it does include America."


People are guessing everything from Whitney Houston appearing to the return of a former contestant. But since the interviewer had just asked a question about the songwriting competition, I'm guessing that it has to do with that. Lythgoe has been lobbying FOX for an all-star edition of "Idol" where former contestants would sing the song finalists and then America would vote for the winner. I'm guessing that FOX has wisely agreed to go along with it...
