Seacrest said during the New Jersey auditions for the Fox TV singing contest that he didn’t know how big the revamped panel will turn out to be. ‘American Idol’ started with three judges and then expanded to four.
Seacrest joked he misses Cowell, who was his “roommate” while on the road for auditions.
The panel switcheroo won’t be the only overhaul in season 10. Universal Music Group announced Tuesday it was replacing Sony Music Entertainment as the label that develops, distributes and markets “Idol” finalists.
