After last year's successful American Idol delivered winner Caleb Johnson - taking out Idol with "As Long As You Love Me" - and runner up Jena Irene, this year Idol is changing its format slightly. Mentor Randy Jackson has departed and been replaced by Scott Borchetta from Big Machine Records (he discovered Taylor Swift) with no more live results show, simply a single two-hour broadcast on Wednesday nights.
It will also still deliver great moments between judges, like this one!

As Entertainment Weekly's Stephanie Schomer explains, "The show's lost a lot of fans to The Voice over the past few years, but here's why I never got into the NBC hit: Idol is a competition for musicians, guided by celebrity judges. The Voice is a competition for celebrity judges, and the musicians play only a supporting role-which is probably why The Voice has failed to produce any real stars during its seven seasons. Folks tune in for Adam and Blake; the competitors are a bonus."
"Stick with Idol," she adds. "Give it another chance. At the least, you'll feel something. At the most, the series will regain its footing and give us a chart-topping superstar (or maybe at least a hit single). Either way, you'll enjoy the ride."
