American Idol is experiencing a major shakeup this year...and it kind of makes you wonder if fans will keep watching?

Besides the obvious change to the judges' panel, the show's also lowering the minimum age to audition to 15. JSYK readers are split almost right down the middle on this. Fifty-one percent say it's a good idea, while 49 percent aren't interested in listening to teens that age perform.

One reader comments, "The voice really isn't advanced enough at that age. The older contestants would have better-developed voices and an unfair advantage."
Fasten your seatbelt, because American Idol just announced a new batch of modifications for the upcoming season. The top 24 was too boring for the show's executive producer, so now it'll jump right into the top 12.

And here's another newbie idea you'll see set into motion: Finalists will now make music videos and work with backup dancers for their performances. Sounds so over-the-top and dramatic that we're eager to see how it plays out.

Are so many changes at once a good idea? Will it keep viewers interested or annoy fans?%Poll-55992%
