And now they tell us that they are changing the audition process, too. The show announced that they are now accepting online submissions of which a few of the best will be chosen to move directly to L.A. Arrghhh! Too many changes at once! [Us Weekly]

But while they’re at it, here are some more suggested changes to shake things up. Keep reading »

But he still has that little bad boy in him.”
