TOP FIVE REASONS WHY AMERICAN IDOL IS LOSING THE RATINGS

I am a big fan of American Idol since Season 3. That as actually my very first time to watch the said show because Jasmine Trias made a huge buzz in our country and I was hooked to the show since then. As we all know , American Idol is currently facing some disappointing feedbacks especially about their ratings. They did some gimmicks , they did some modifications but it seems like none of these worked out. I listed some of the possible reasons why American Idol, an iconic Reality Show , is losing the rating game? 
TOP FIVE REASONS WHY AMERICAN IDOL IS LOSING THE RATINGS

TOP 5 REASON WHY AMERICAN IDOL IS LOSING THE RATINGS
"TENURITY"
If Businesses have their Tenured employees, I guess in the industry of reality shows, American Idol is already considered as Tenure. It's been twelve years and I believed that people grew up tired of seeing the same show every year. I think Idol is lacking now of charisma, the charisma that that had 11 years ago. Well it's just like a routine, and if you keep on doing the same thing over and over again, you will eventually get bored to it and look for other ways to entertain yourself. Same thing goes with American Idol, we see them doing the same routine, doing the same judging and doing the same performance and as a result, people lose all their excitement.

"COMPETITORS"

American Idol used to embrace the spot light for being the most watched singing reality show but not anymore. Thanks to their competitors which offer a much more exciting and thrilling mechanics. This is actually in relation to what I have mentioned earlier. If people get tired of the same routine, they will eventually look for other things to entertain them. If they do not have much option before, now, they have many creative shows to choose from. We have The Voice (and their cool rotating chairs), we have the X Factor (and their super cool productions) and a whole lot more. I don't think it would be nice for the show to mimic the other shows and American Idol should come up with something more original and unique.

"SAME THEMES"
One of American Idol's highlights is the Song theme but this thing is becoming more and more predictable. If you are an avid fan of the show, you can definitely list down those themes that are commonly being used over and over and over again. We have the Beatles, the motown, The Birth song, and more. Yes, these songbooks are broad but don't you think they should come up with something new? On top of that, even though the songbooks are broad , the contestants used to pick the same set of songs. Sigh..

"MORE PREDICTABLE , LESS SURPRISING"

American Idol is no longer giving us any surprise. It is very predictable indeed. Perhaps, the judges made mistakes in choosing their finalists. Every season, there is always someone who will stand out from the rest almost every week which is really not a good thing because it feels like there is no longer a competition at all. But hey, this strong contender will not be declared as the winner because there's always a dark horse who will emerge from the final and win the crown. 

THE BEST REASON WHY AMERICAN IDOL IS LOSING THE RATINGS
"THE DRAMA AND THE JUDGES"
If there is one thing that I hate about American Idol, it's the Drama. I hate the fact that the show is trying to focus more on the judges rather than the contestants. It is a singing competition and not a drama series. I also hate when the judges will give some irrelevant comments for the sake of saying something about the performance done by the contestants.  Who cares about their Drama anyway? To make it short, it seems like the show is losing its focus. I think they should give more time or focus to the finalist to build up their identity.
