'American Idol' finale rumored to move to New York

By Andrew Wilson,

Although there are conflicting reports, the finale for season 13 American Idol could be held at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York.

According to the Hollywood Reporter Idol blogs have been running amuck with the rumored move for the finale but other sources are contending that the move to the newly renovated Madison Square Garden is simply not true.

Zap2it noted though with all the dramatic changes at the end of season 12 with original producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick being fired, an almost complete overhaul of judges and advisors, that the change of venue to the finale, could just be the next major change for the show.

Among the changes even before the start of the season 13 was the ad campaign, which featured current competitors for the season, focusing more on the story of the contestants, rather than the celebrity judges.

The new season of American Idol kicks off Jan. 15 on Fox, and the finale, wherever it may be, is scheduled for May 20 and 21.
