For the 10th season of “American Idol,” we’ll be seeing a lot more fresh faces, as the show has dropped the minimum age limit from 16 to 15. The maximum age to perform on the show will stay at 28.
“A lot of young, talented people are now seeking careers and representation before they turn 16. Lowering the age limit allows us to tap into this talent pool,” said Cecile Frot-Coutaz, their executive producer.
Great. Not only has Justin Bieber ruined Twitter and flashing peace signs, his prepubescent success is also ruining “American Idol.”
