Blake Lewis was the runner-up on "American Idol" Season 6, and much has changed in the six years since. Pretty much everyone (besides Ryan Seacrest) that Blake worked with on the life-changing, ground-breaking series is gone, and fans are wondering if the show can get a fresh start and continue. In Blake's special blog entry, he reflects on the show's past and future, whether he'd ever be an "Idol" judge, and his own new start thanks to a new (third) record deal with Republic and a new hit single. — LP
How can "American Idol" keep going without the people who built it from the ground up? I was on one of the last seasons of "AI" that had the original cast of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson.
I couldn't believe the universe had put me on a television show. Lucky for me, it did…and it was live! I could be myself, and America could love or loathe me at an instant. Since then, every judge has left. Randy held out for 12 seasons and continued to help mold modern competitive TV. With producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick and all of the judges departing, it was like breaking up a family of friends.
