American Idol Twitter Round-up

Janelle Arthur on American Idol

It’s officially American Idol off-season and there’s not a lot going on aside from rumors about who will and who will no be judges next season, but thanks to Twitter, we still get tiny bits of news here and there, so here is our first summer edition of American Idol’s Twitter round-up.

Nigel Confirms His Exit

As we reported, Fox has decided to go without Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick next season on American Idol. And Nigel confirmed his exit with a few tweets about the subject.

“Kust had 10 days in the Bahamas, rain everyday,” he Tweeted. “I get back to the States and get fired. Sad! Monday we choose our top 20 [SYTYCD]. I’ll smile again.”

He went on to explain why he is out at Idol.

“Yes, don’t worry I’m on #SYTYCD. FOX still loves me. It’s not a personal thing they just feel IDOL needs new leadership after 12 Seasons,” he Tweeted.

Janelle Arthur Headed To The Opry

American Idol runner-up Kree Harrison just did the Grand Ole Opry and now Season 12 finalist Janelle Arthur is headed there as well.

“Ok I am in such disbelief to tell y’all that I will officially be playing the Grand Ole Opry! My dream since I was 4. I am so beyond honored. June 19th!” She Tweeted.

Erika Van Pelt To Perform With Kellie Pickler

American Idol Season 11 alum Erika Van Pelt seems to be getting a lot of opportunities post Idol.
