american-idol-logoAiring on Fox-TV, AMERICAN IDOL continues the brutal elimination of hopeful contestants on the latest season of what has become the country’s favorite talent competition. Featuring judges RANDY JACKSON, STEVEN TYLER and JENNIFER LOPEZ along with host RYAN SEACREST, the series seemed to be struggling through its first few “audition” episodes but, now that the Top Ten is being whittled away, it appears to be stronger than ever. The first of this generation’s televised talent contests, AMERICAN IDOL has spawned countless imitators, but has always managed to stay ahead of the pack. During our recent phone interview with JACKSON, he talked about how he hopes people will look back at the show after its gone. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
