“American Idol” Season 13 Judges

Here are your confirmed judges for Season 13 of American Idol!  Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick, Jr.  I’m excited.  I was starting to fade away from American Idol a little bit last year. I was frustrated and bored. I missed the stories about the kids who were auditioning. I thought the wacky judges were the center of the show and a big distraction.  I like that Idol has returned to its original panel of three judges.  (Although the trifecta will always be Simon, Randy, and Paula.) I like that these three stars are serious music industry veterans.  Our “dawg,” Randy Jackson, will still be around as a mentor.  (Woof!)  And I will always love you, Ryan Seacrest.  Let’s try this again, American Idol.  My DVR is set for January 2014.
