AOL TV has reported that Nigel Lythgoe might be returning to American Idol for a much needed remodeling of the show’s structure and format. And first on the table for the So You Think You Can Dance judge and Executive Producer? Completely revamping the Judge’s table. No more Randy, Kara, and maybe Ellen? Who would he like to see? Usher, Elton John and Paula Abdul – and he is on record saying that. Fox and the American Idol production team are under a time crunch as they try to secure a celebrity panel before Fox’s new show, The X Factor (produced by ex-AI judge Simon Cowell). After Lythoe’s work on SYTYCD, his expertise might be needed back on American Idol if he were to make a return as executive producer after leaving the show after it’s 7th season to spend more time on SYTYCD. So what’s next for American Idol? Will we see a whole new judge’s panel when the show premieres in January of 2011? Get the details here and discuss it with us!
