    Universal Casts Its Vote on American Idol

    American Idol has been the nation's most popular prime-time TV program for seven years running. As the aging franchise prepares to begin its 10th season on Jan. 19 in a crowded field of reality competition shows, Idol is getting a little help from a music industry friend: Universal Music Group. After replacing Sony (SNE) as the singing competition's record-label partner in August, the world's biggest music company is intent on expanding its role beyond producing albums by finalists. The two new judges on the show are Universal artists Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. Jimmy Iovine, founder of Universal's Interscope Records and the man credited with discovering big acts like Eminem, will coach contestants.

    If Sony wants to keep Carrie they better start treating her right because I would think Universal would love to have one of the biggest Idol seller. Carrie has so much more potential for selling albums since so much as not even been tapped as of yet.
