“They were given the opportunity to grow in the audition room,” he says. “That has not happened before.”

“I’m extremely happy with the success we had this season,” he says. “It was a season of transition, a season where we lost our two No. 1 stars. I’m thrilled, delighted. I always said it’s about the talent. This year it was about the talent.”

For next season, Lythgoe’s mulling over the voting process. “I am going to be interested in listening to one device, one vote, each week,” he says. “Voting will be discussed. It is unique to ‘Idol,’ the way we have it now.”

If it did change, “we would never be able to boast again 72 million votes in a night.”

What happens if you like more than one person? Only one person can win ultimately but AI is not a sporting event, people are fans of multiple contestants a lot of time and vote accordingly. People go to the concerts because they like multiple people, most of the time, and fans' feelings about a season as a whole are based on how they liked the group, not just one singer.

Why should AI try to copy another singing show that was/is less successful in multiple ways (ratings, building momentum to finale, keeping buzz around the finalists after the season is over)?
