Iovine on Idol

IOVINE DOTS THE “I” IN IDOL: The new deal between IGA and American Idol looks like an extremely good fit, assuming that Jimmy Iovine plays a hands-on role in the long-running show’s next chapter. The show is currently revamping under returning producer Nigel Lythgoe, with new judges yet to be brought in to replace Ellen DeGeneres, who has definitely split, and Kara DioGuardi, rumored to be out. Already Jennifer Lopez has bowed out of the hunt, with observers blaming manager Benny Medina’s exorbitant demands, while leading candidate Steven Tyler has yet to officially join the show. Other candidates being bandied about include Shania Twain and Jessica Simpson. Iovine should fit in well at this transitional moment to help usher in Idol’s anticipated new feel. He is ideally suited to change the game by applying his legendary A&R skills to the show. In short, he could be the X factor in its reinvention. (8/12p)
