Jimmy Iovine Reflects On American Idol 2013 Top 5

Jimmy Iovine - American Idol

Jimmy Iovine was back this week on American Idol with another look at the Top 5 performances. I was glad to see FOX doing everything they can to increase Jimmy’s involvement by injecting clips of him during Wednesday’s live show as he discussed the songs backstage.

Check out the videos below of Jimmy going through performances by Amber, Angie, Candice, Janelle, and Kree. Do you agree with what Jimmy had to say? I’m guessing he’s pleased that America finally voted Amber up in to the Top 3 after he pleaded with voters to give her more credit.

  1. Jimmy is in the industry for quite a while and he knows what is good material. So Branden he knows Amber has what it takes to be a shinning star.

  2. jimmy IS interscope, where these girls are going to work when the tour is over, so of course he knows what he wants and how he wants it. he wants his company to make money first and foremost. his critiques are the most realistic from a business point of view

    • Yes I agree and not just from a business point of view. Jimmy is chairman of interscope which also runs A&M record company and Geffen Records.

      He has successfully signed and brought countless singers to the worlds’ attention outside of what he does with AMERICAN IDOL.

      His incredible success rate shows he also knows what any given demographic wants.
      Nicki could not have sounded more idiotic the other night when she said he doesnt know what he’s talking about.

      • I think we are all guilty of taking Nikki too serious sometimes. She understood we knew better about her Jimmy comment. You know – deep down – I believe Nikki is a good person and is honest and fair. Of all the judges – I think she wants the best to win and it doesn’t matter which one. In addition – most of the time her critiques impress me and they are right on it!!!

      • Okay. You could be right. She could be saying certain things for the effect she knows they will have on the audience. But, I still believe that she should temper her remarks with good taste and consider what time slot the show airs in. I dont doubt she wants the best singer to win.

  3. I think if new judges were to be picked,I would keep Randy,Mariah and perhaps one of the past singers who were on idol and made it in the singing scene.
