(Michael) Jackson to appear on American Idol? (Enabling access to "mentor" the young)
e-news ^ | 13 Feb 07

Posted on 02/13/2007 2:59:02 PM PST by xzins

Jackson to appear on American Idol? From World Entertainment News Network February 13, 2007 2:16 PM EST Pop star MICHAEL JACKSON will appear on hit reality show AMERICAN IDOL and may even mentor contestants, according to media reports in the US.

Jackson is currently working on a comeback and has turned to Idol creator SIMON FULLER to help revive his career.

According to RealityTVMagazine.com, the star will have his own "Idol" theme-week and may mentor the talent on the show.

Producers of the show have hinted for weeks at a "big event show" during the new season and during a recent conference call, executive producer NIGEL LYTHGOE mentioned Jackson, saying they wouldn't want it to "slip out with somebody telling their mom that Michael Jackson is coming".

The THRILLER star is also working with choreographer and director KENNY ORTEGA, who said last week (ends09FEB07) Jackson is weighing all his options regarding a comeback.

Ortega explains, "We're talking business and looking at lots of different possibilities. This is blue-sky time with a lot of different scenarios up in the air.

"We're working through all of them to find the best, the one that makes the most sense and that's good for everybody." (SS/WNWCZM/IG)

I've watched the show a few times.

This will definitely make me stop. No way I'll participate in helping that creep get access to desperate young males looking for their "big" break.

DIdn;t they have a spin off "Teen Idol", or "Child Idol" a few years back? I assume Michael would have preffered mentoring on those shows.

was it the bubble gum music or the buggering that won you over?

The creator of American Idol is Simon COWELL, not Fuller. I do hope that the writer is also mistaken about Michael Jackson coming on the show. Why should anyone help him 'come back' from the obscurity he so richly deserves?

I think it's probably good to be bigger than he is. :)

His early musical work was very good, up until around the mid-1990s.

I might end up eating my words, but I don't believe anyone associated with Idol is this stupid. Of course, I probably would have said the same thing about the OJ book so...

I believe Fuller was the original Idol creator and Cowell simply did an American spinoff of it.

Either way, I don't think they should involve Michael Jackson. I think Idol is successful and doesn't need a guy like him to boost the ratings. If it were 1985, I'd say go for it, but Michael is a creep now. I know he was found innocent of all molestation charges, but he still admitted to sleeping with other people's children in his bed. There is something not right about a man that would sleep with kids (that aren't his) in his bed.

It's good way to tank your ratings. I'll, certainly, stop watching!

(AP) American Idol Star Kevin Covais went missing yesterday and was last seen headed to a private session with Idol Mentor Michael Jackson. Covais was attempting to become a repeat idol finisher. Police are investigating.

Simon Fuller created American Idol. Simon is a popular name amongst those brits!

Frankly, though, it's been a year....I'm surprised he has any face left.

Oh no! I love that show, but if they pander to a child molester, or attempt to use him as a musical mentor to these contestants, there is no way I will ever watch it again.

you'll be in the minority, it will be a ratings bonanza.

Massive segments of the population will tune in to see what freaky surgical mutilations he has undertaken since last seen in public.

I couldn't agree more. This is outrageous considering so many of the contestants are under 18 years of age.

See #18.

I don't think so.

I think it will kill it.

Think not of just the actual contestants, think of the aspiring contestants.

This is giving a pedophile access to an unlimited number of young males. I can't believe anyone would think that to be a good idea.

So far as his rotting face.....

Correction. He was "found not guilty." He was NOT, as you said, "found innocent." There is a galaxy of difference between the two.

Nothing to fear - the male contestants are FAR too old for Jackson's taste.... he prefers prepubescents....

I watch the show....and I just hope Michael fixed his face. It will be hard to watch the show when I'm watchign Michaels nose falling off his face. I actually on the fence about him.....I think he's a very talented but mixed up person. I hope he makes a comeback....

I don't watch American Idol and never have watched it. But, with the show as successful as it currently is and with the "Eeeeewwwww!" factor surrounding Michael Jackson, the show's creators would have to out of their minds to let him anywhere near it. Why mess with a show that's at the very top of the entertainment mountain, especially by hiring a freak and a pedophile who bought his way out of jail and then fled the country?
