Calling in a vote for American Idol? So 2010. This year- naming the next American Idol is just a click away – with online voting.
While other reality shows – like Dancing with the Stars – have always had online voting, A.I. avoided it. The show relied on phone calls or AT&T customer texts from its millions of viewers. (Fox)
But you won’t head to American Idol’s official site to cast your vote. You’ll just log onto Facebook. Entertainment Weekly welcomes the addition of Facebook voting, saying Idol already survived its biggest challenge.
“With Idol still dominating in the ratings and viewers embracing Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez as judges, the industry consensus seems to be that the show has managed to pull off something that many thought impossible — soldiering on successfully in the wake of Cowell’s departure.”
American Idol’s ratings have slipped a little since Cowell’s exit. But a Time Magazine Techland blogger sees the addition of Facebook – which will give viewers 50 votes instead of the usual ten – as the right move if producers want to boost audience interest.
“...this new method could give 'Idol' an even bigger ratings kick. And ex-Idol judge Simon Cowell seems to think Facebook voting is a good plan, too -- it was leaked that he'll be using the same method when his new show, 'X Factor,' debuts this fall.”
But the addition of online voting has some Tweeting, why just Facebook? And why 50 votes?
TravMatthews American Idol online voting.....but [only] if you have facebook. (O_o) jeez.
benadida … 1person=1vote? No. 50. I wish we'd stop calling that voting #confusion
A.I. will roll out Facebook voting after the March 1st episode. While you’re waiting there, you can always “like” Newsy on Facebook, too.

Reunited and it feels so good. Or does it? Former American Idol adversaries Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul reportedly plan to steam up the small screen for a second time. E! News explains.
“Word is Simon has his heart set on casting his former A.I. partner as a judge on the American version of The X Factor ... British singer Cheryl Cole is also reportedly in talks to join the panel, alongside confirmed judge L.A. Reid.”
After getting the boot from American Idol and bombing with her own dance show on CBS, Clevver Music urges Abdul to take the job.
“Now apparently Abdul’s contract hasn’t been negotiated yet, but, c’mon, she’d be pretty much stupid to say no to an opportunity like this one.”
And a blogger for Exec Digital argues Abdul’s needed to balance out the two unknowns joining Simon at the judges’ table.
“Even without L.A. Reid and Cheryl Cole, the unique partnership between Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul is going to get people to watch. It was obvious from the moment Paula Abdul was thrown out of Fox’s ‘American Idol’ that Simon wanted her back, and now with his own show, he’s going to get just that.”
So it’s probably good for ratings, but what about for the show’s contestants? Deadline’s Nikki Finke questions Cowell’s choices, wondering if Simon can even create a superstar with less-than-stellar mentors.
“But will Cowell with this panel that’s more of a ‘ZZZZZZ Factor’ than The X Factor? Cowell has been stung by the impression left by many media outlets that celebrities are refusing his offers to be a judge.”
After losing Jennifer Lopez to Idol, and Cee-Lo Green to The Voice, a blogger for Holy Moly suggests Cowell still didn’t find the right mix.
“But Cheryl Cole... hmmmm ... sorry Simon - I don't get it … In the states she'll be judged on her merits as a reality show judge, but without the stateside credentials that see Paula Abdul given her wildcard ‘joke’ entry as a judge. Paula was always the worst/best thing about American Idol depending on your perspective, but may feel as though she's no longer Simon's foil with [Cole] wedged in between them.”
And in what some are calling a last resort to create buzz, Cowell announced Mariah Carey will join The X Factor in a “limited capacity.” But the always outspoken Wendy Williams wonders, why not just make her a judge?
“And I gotta tell you, Mariah Carey- you get her in the right space, she’s gonna bring all the coo-coo crazy. Not as glamorous as Jennifer Lopez, but she’s kitschy, and that’s why I like about Mariah Carey ... She’s cute enough, and just messy enough. Right you guys? Messy.
Fox plans to announce the official judging line-up at its upfront presentation next month.

CrossFire review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of CrossFire from A.I. Company and Kyugo Trading Co. for the SEGA Genesis. CrossFire was known as Super Airwolf overseas, but regardless of the name, it's a solid hybrid shooter with some interesting ideas. Most levels start with a stretch of vintage vertically scrolling gameplay, only afterward, you're swooping in close. After that, you're on foot and moving through the same stage your plane just bombed. The more enemies you're able to destroy with your plane, the easier it'll be for your foot soldier. CrossFire is certainly a diverse game, which sets it apart from other 16 bit shooters. This video review features video gameplay footage of CrossFire for the SEGA Genesis and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
We're thrilled to announce everyone's favorite life-form can now live forever!
