The Ultimate American Idol Redux Summary: In this redux/game, every American Idol finalist will be battling each other for the top spot (“the best finalist”). It will (hopefully) feature showstopper performances, top-notch judging, and the public’s votes. Judges: @Bk1234 @JC @anonymouskid_35 @thevoiceisthetop The role as a “judge” will require… Should be online pretty frequently (if there are other life requirements, those take priority, and we will be able to work around that.) Should be able to send in comments on performances after about a day or so of receiving them (this will help the show move at a quicker pace.) Should be able to make decisions regarding contestants’ future in the competition (wildcard picks). Should be able to explain their choices, if required. Should be able to mentor/select songs for contestants. Upcoming Rounds: ~Showcase Round~ Contestants will showcase their capabilities with songs of their choice for your votes. Top 209 -> Top 76: Rules/How This Will Work: The contestants will perform a randomly selected song (chosen using an online spinner) for the public’s votes. The four contestants of each season that receive the highest number of votes will automatically make it to the next round (Top 76), while the remaining contestants have the chance to be one of the judges’ wildcard picks. Wildcard Night: Rules/How This Will Work: The judges will each pick two of the remaining contestants (those who are not safe) to sing again for their wildcard pick. The judges will then discuss and decide on four contestants that will move on to the next round (one wildcard pick per judge). Top 76 -> Top 36: Rules/How This Will Work: The remaining contestants will perform another randomly selected song (chosen using an online spinner) for the public’s votes. The two contestants of each season that receive the highest number of votes will make it to the next round (Top 36), while the remaining contestants are eliminated. ~Judge Cuts~ The contestants will perform for the judges. The judges will then decide their fates. Top 36 -> Top 24: Rules/How This Will Work: The Top 36 will be split into two groups of 18. The contestants will each perform a song of their choice. The judges will then discuss and decide on 24 contestants (12 from each group) who will make it to the next round, resulting in the elimination of 12 contestants (6 from each group). More rounds will be revealed soon! Voting Methods: Survey Heart Voting : Credit to @anonymouskid_35 for the idea. You will "vote" by ranking the performances from worst to best. Each question will contain a performance and you will select a placement/point value for it. For example, if you thought Jim Verraros delivered the best performance, you would select the option "1st Place (10 pts.)" There will also be a question asking for your IDF Account Display Name. You can only vote ONCE per IDF Account! Please do not give more than one performance the same point value or I will disregard all of your votes! Current Survey Heart poll: COMING SOON IDF Private Message (PM) Voting: You can "vote" by shooting be a PM with the the contestant's number and the number of times you want to vote for that contestant. You can vote 10 times per contestant with this method. All contestant numbers will be revealed during the first show for their season. The number will be the same for the entire competition! Please keep all of your votes in one private conversation with me! For example, if you wanted to vote for Kelly Clarkson 10 times, you would PM @Bk1234 "110 (x10)." PM Voting Is Not Currently Open.

American Idol is an American singing competition television series created by Simon Fuller, produced by Fremantle North America and 19 Entertainment, and distributed by Fremantle North America. It initially aired on Fox from June 11, 2002, to April 7, 2016, for 15 seasons. It had a hiatus for two years, until March 11, 2018, when a revival of the series aired on ABC It started as an addition to the Idols format that was based on Pop Idol from British television, and became one of the most successful shows in the history of American television. The concept of the series involves discovering recording stars from unsigned singing talents, with the winner determined by American viewers using phones, Internet, and SMS text voting. The winners of the first eighteen seasons, as chosen by viewers, are Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze, Scotty McCreery, Phillip Phillips, Candice Glover, Caleb Johnson, Nick Fradiani, Trent Harmon, Maddie Poppe, Laine Hardy, and Just Sam respectively. American Idol employs a panel of vocal judges who critique the contestants' performances. The original judges, for the first through eighth seasons, were record producer and music manager Randy Jackson, singer and choreographer Paula Abdul, and music executive and manager Simon Cowell. The judging panel for the last three seasons on Fox consisted of singers Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Jr.The sixteenth season brought three new judges: singers Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan. The first season was hosted by radio personality Ryan Seacrest and comedian Brian Dunkleman, but Seacrest has been the sole master of ceremonies for the rest of the series. The success of American Idol has been described as "unparalleled in broadcasting history". A rival TV executive said the series was "the most impactful show in the history of television". It became a recognized springboard for launching the career of many artists as bona fide stars. According to Billboard magazine, in its first ten years, "Idol has spawned 345 Billboard chart-toppers and a platoon of pop idols, including Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, Fantasia, Ruben Studdard, Jennifer Hudson, Clay Aiken, Adam Lambert, and Jordin Sparks while remaining a TV ratings juggernaut." For an unprecedented eight consecutive years, from the 2003–04 television season through the 2010–11 season, either its performance show or result show was ranked number one in U.S. television ratings.
Remember back in the day when we had that sub-forum named Redux Emporium? I miss it. I’ve decided to bring a redux back but not one that you might remember. The Greatest will pit twelve contestants against each other as they battle it out to win the crown and bragging rights as “The Greatest”. RULES - To sign up just post the name of the contestant you wish to play. Once all the spots are filled then I will announce the theme and you submit a song. - I also need two judges. The judges will receive the songs before the show and give their opinions on the performances. These comments will be posted in the main show. You might agree, you might not. - You cannot choose a song that the contestant sang on the show. It also used to be frowned upon to choose a song by an artist your contestant has previously performed. - Each week will have a different theme. The song you choose for your contestant must fit the theme. - Please have your songs in before the deadline. It helps everything else run more smoothly. I just give you a day but I won’t be giving you weeks. - Any Idol, Four or solo X Factor/Voice contestants are eligible to be chosen. - Please only sign up if you’re willing to participate throughout the entire redux. Don’t just vanish halfway through. It’s meant to be fun! JUDGES 1. Jade Thirlwall @Zoey 2. Kimberly Caldwell @Elliott 3. David Archuleta @Bk1234 4. Delta Goodrem @*Chris CONTESTANTS 1.
