If you want to get a ticket to Hollywood this year on American Idol, then you might just have to have the approval of Joe Jonas. Yes, that vast musical talent known as a Jonas is going to decide whether or not contestants on this season of American Idol have talent. Is he really an arbiter of talent? This just makes me think that it is the producers who decides who moves on to the Hollywood round. They need some drama for those episodes of the show and my guess is that Joe Jonas and the other judges make very few decisions on their own in that round.
A decision I firmly stand behind is that Kelly Clarkson is getting a chance to judge as is Mary J Blige. I would love Mary J to be a judge all season long. You absolutely know she wouldn't take any crap at all from Simon and would put him in his place in a second. She doesn't need the job and so wouldn't need to kiss his ass. I think all the other judges are scared of Simon and know that he can keep them or not and so show a deference to him he probably doesn't deserve. Mary J is her own woman and knows what she is talking about and I bet Simon would never once correct her. That could make for a very good season.
