I'm not an American Idol fan. I don't hate it, but I just never got into it and I'm not about to start. But I had a great idea for the show. I don't know much about the contestants and I really could care less about the judges but I do know that songs performed within an episode are based on themes from a genre, like disco or jazz. Themes have also been based on specific artists.
I recently saw a local production of Disney's High School Musical and thought that'd be a great theme for American Idol. I don't know if there are enough songs in the musical for the contestants to use but I think it'd be a marriage made in TV heaven.
