Scott Borchetta, President/CEO of Big Machine Label Group – home to Taylor Swift, Rascal Flats, Reba and more – has joined American Idol XIV as mentor.

American Idol XIV premieres on FOX on Wednesday/Thursday, January 7 & 8, 2015.
The entire panel of judges – Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban – along with host Ryan Seacrest are aboard for American Idol XIV. I hope this doesn’t mean we’re still getting tons of cutaways to J-Lo during what are supposed to be the real highlights of the show: the performances. I also hope it doesn’t rain this summer. Doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen.
