American Idol changes

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - "American Idol" is getting what amounts to a tweak-over. The producers say they will work in ways for contestants to do a wider variety of songs, especially newer tunes. Executive producer Per Blankens says the show's song list will include more current tunes that younger contestants can relate to. In past seasons, contestants had been asked to do things like choose songs from the 80s - or from the year they were born - and often the results weren't pleasing because the singers couldn't relate to them. Former judge Randy Jackson will have a new role on the show. He'll lead a workshop that helps contestants deal with voice issues and other problems. Idol's 13th season starts tomorrow night.
