American Idol 2009 officially begins tomorrow January 13! But it begins for us in the Philippines on Wednesday, January 14. For those with cable TV, it will be broadcast on Star World, but for most who don't (like me, stuck in Tabangao) we can still watch it on Q-11 (Quality Television) who bought the rights to broadcast it on local Philippine TV.
Read the local broadcast schedule here...
"Q-11 will broadcast the show via satellite starting with a four-hour, two-part season premiere tomorrow night (Jan 14) and the following night (Jan 15) at 6 p.m.
The channel will then broadcast American Idol every Wednesday and Thursday night at 6 p.m. with encore telecasts the same night at 8 p.m., and on Saturdays at 5 p.m., until a new singing champion is declared in May."
Aside from Simon, Paula & Randy, AI 2009 will also have Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter Kara DioGuardi. I don't know yet how I feel about her since we haven't seen her in action, but 4 judges doesn't seem right. For one, there will be a lot of ties, 2 against 2, so they'll have to figure that out. (Is it if you get only 2 out of 4 votes, you're out?)
In any case, let's hope AI2009 will not be as boring as last years or as talentless as the year before that. :p Hehe. (Just opinions folks!)
