Selena Gomez Eyed For ‘American Idol’ Reboot? Social Media Protests

Published: Friday 22nd Sep 2017 by David

Selena Gomez is reportedly in talks to join ABC’s ‘American Idol‘ reboot.

How the social media community and the show’s audience has responded?


Details and their responses below…

Katy Perry bagged a sweet $25 million to lead the new judging panel and this, according to some sources, has forced producers to work within a tight budget to find two or three other musically-inclined celebs to fill the remaining spots.

The latest name thrown into the mix? Ms. Gomez.

Alas, those who had hoped news of her potential union with the series would be met with applause were shocked to discover that there are many who feel she is unqualified/underserving of the position.



What we think the problem may be? The machine erected to turn Gomez into a bonafide superstar has done more to support her role as a public figure than a respected Pop vocalist.

Though we can’t say we agree with the comments above, we do think they explain why the star’s numbers aren’t as high as they should be (considering her A list status).

Do we think she’s deserving of her an ‘Idol’ role? Definitely. For she is, in many ways, a contemporary American idol and undoubtedly has a great deal of knowledge and experience to offer a new wave of Pop hopefuls.

    Okay, they dragged her up and down twitterspere but the U.K had Cheryl Tweedy/Cole/Fernandez – Versini/Cole doing the same insulting thing and getting paid.

    What’s the difference between selena and Jennifer Lopez, Miley, Mel B and Britney spears. I’ll wait. Because no of these other artist are vocal powerhouses but they all have judged people for their singing

      Miley can Ben a good singer when she wants to be.

    • Francis September 22, 2017

      Britney knew how to perform, Jennifer can slay a stage and Miley knows her craft (you need to hear her Backyard Sessions).

      I like Selena and I think she’s smart, she finally realized that she doesn’t have a big voice and her new sound really suits, but she’s just a cute recording artist. She doesn’t know a thing about singing or performing, they need to get a producer or a songwriter for the other slots.

      She’s no fave of mine, but Katy knows how to write a song and knows a thing or two about singing and performing. Still, I can’t understand the paycheck, especially when you consider her current era.

    They barely have any money left to pay for judges BC Katy got 25 mill of the 40 mill they had to use. They you have Ryan that needs a check and 2 more judges. 1 should be a music I sided, former a&r, billboard worker or writer for rolling stone or xxl magazine and a producer or another singer. I think Nigel would be good choice, as long as he isn’t jumping over people.
