I have been keeping this on the dl for about a month. TPTB decided because of low viewership, they needed to switch up entirely American Idol Extra, meaning getting new Idols to host. Gina Glocksen and Constantine Maroulis will be taking over Mikalah's job.

Mikalah is obviously very unhappy. This is not the greatest time for her career and every one supporting her (which has been very lacking) is needed right now.

Here is the press release from American Idol Extra:

QUOTE
Fox Reality Channel Brings the Excitement of American Idol From the Stage to Your Living Room With the Third Season of the Original Series “American Idol Extra” Premiering March 13
Host JD Roberto is Joined by New Co-Hosts, “American Idol” Alums Constantine Maroulis and Gina Glocksen, as they Report Behind-the-Scenes on America’s Favorite Show


LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Fox Reality Channel Original Series “American Idol Extra,” the premier destination for capturing more behind-the-scenes “American Idol” excitement and emotions, will debut on Thursday, March 13, at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET/PT on the only all-reality, all-the-time cable and satellite network. “American Idol Extra” will follow the final 11 weeks of the Season 7 competition, featuring interviews with all the top contestants leading up to the final episode, including the next American Idol. This year the show will get even more up-close and personal, and host JD Roberto will have the first full interview with the departing contestants of “American Idol” directly from the “Idol” studios. Fox Reality Channel fulfills its promise of giving reality television fans more by picking up immediately where “American Idol” leaves off.

Roberto, who returns to host “American Idol Extra” for the second time, is joined by two new co-hosts, Constantine Maroulis and Gina Glocksen, who have experienced “American Idol” firsthand. Constantine was a finalist during the fourth season of “American Idol” and Gina made it to the final 12 during last year’s “Idol” season.

“‘American Idol’ is a dominating force in reality television and has become a large part of American culture. We are proud to offer viewers the very first interviews with eliminated contestants, plus firsthand ‘Idol’ expertise from our new co-hosts,” says Fox Reality Channel President David Lyle.

This spring Fox Reality Channel (FRC) will celebrate its third anniversary, continuing to offer fans of reality television more of their favorite shows and new original programming. The premiere of “American Idol Extra” is only the beginning; in May FRC will be the network to watch with a stellar line-up including the finales of “American Idol Extra” and “Paradise Hotel 2,” plus the premiere of “The Academy: L.A.S.D. Class #368.”

“American Idol Extra” is produced by FremantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment. Tracy Verna is executive producer. Emmy-nominated “American Idol” is created and executive-produced by Simon Fuller, founder of 19 Entertainment; and executive produced by Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO, FremantleMedia North America; Nigel Lythgoe, President, 19 Television; and Ken Warwick, executive producer, FremantleMedia North America.

I know... it seems like the producers are attempting to score more viewers with these 2, but that wasn't the problem it was that they are on a crappy channel...

I agree. It didnt get great ratings becuase not everyone even gets that channel. Personally, I don't even get the channel, but when it's up on MGO, I watch it there. It wasn't Mikalah's fault the ratings weren't that great. She's a fantastic little host and it really sucks about their decision to get new hosts!
I hope Meeky knows that she still does have people here supporting her. I know that she will do amazing things, and I'll still be here supporting her every step of the way! huggy.gif

I'm very proud of Gina, she deserves it, and good for Constantine on doing it as well... But the fact remains, 19 management has basically made Mikalah out to be a host since the finale of her season when they put her on the red carpet, and then they take it away from her. no.gif

Im honestly VERY UPSET WITH THIS!!!!! I WATCHED fox reality becuase Mikalah was co-hosting and that ALSO allowed me to check out the other shows on there that they had like paradise hotel and other... Mikalah has BROUGHT viewer ship to the channel. Im not watching anymore.
They can stick the reality up their fox hole.

*HUGS* to Mikalah.....bigger and WAY BETTER things are coming baby. WAY better things. Just a stepping stone...like idol.

something will give... but when people go to look up Mikalah's name and doesn't see a lot of fan response... that doesn't look good for her. So we gotta keep it up!

Maybe some of the newer ones will post too! *Cough*me*cough* haha.gif
But yeah, I don't see how Constantine can be a better host than Mikalah, I love Gina but she doesn't seem like she could be as bubbly as Mikalah.

They should've kept Mikalah and gotten Gina. I love those 2. Mikalah is a great host and Constantine makes me sick. Him being on it almost makes me not want to watch.
