With reports saying the newest season of "American Idol" (AI) is not doing anyone a favor, rumors of the return of the original AI judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson on the idol judges' seats had been suiting for most of the idol fans committed to watching the show since it first aired in 2001.

After 13 years of airing on television, now is the time that Al series is hitting its lowest rating. "Survivor" on the CBS Network is now ahead of "American Idol" 2014 by 6 percent in the competition for the 8:00-9:00 p.m. timeslot, according to the March 27 report of TV Media Insights.

"American Idol" producers had been ganging up with new show formats. Season13 had only been one proof that the show had undergone many changes in the past couple of years and gearing up for more.

One of the distinct changes on the popular reality show had been the judge changes. From the originals Cowell, Abdul and Jackson to having Kara DioGuardi, "Oscars" host Ellen DeGeneres, Steven Tyler, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and now to its current judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr, "American Idol" appeared only constant at one and that was to its host Ryan Seacrest who had been present since the beginning of the show.

Rumors of changing the judges only intensified when Simon Cowell posted an intriguing statement on his Twitter account regarding the original American Idol judges "reunion."

The tweet had gained public reactions, garnering 2,448 retweets as of the moment and 6,902 favorites. Brandon Moore, an apparent fan of the original judges had replied to Cowell saying he would love to see the original judges' combination again.

Danielle Saco, another fan, admitted Cowell's revelation made her heart cry, and even pleaded that the reunion should happen sooner.

Reports from February 2014 confirmed Fox already made its final decision to cancel the X Factor USA for 2014, where Cowell was one of the judges. This bit of news first reported by Mail Online had made it the more forthcoming for all the hopeful fans wanting to reunite the original American Idol judges.

A new revelation from Bob Mezan, reporting for Reuters, however, shared Simon Cowell is opening a new "X-Factor" musical. This can shatter the hopes of all "American Idol" fans rooting for the original judges. But apparently, returning on the reality show, Cowell had already owed up to the fans a "reunion" in the future.

Let's celebrate the life and achievements of Paul Walker Tags: paul walker life achievements paul walker word life production featured entertainment

Born in California in 1973, Paul Walker made his big-screen debut in the 1986 horror spoof Monster in Your Closet. After appearing in several television shows in the 1990s, including Charles in Charge, Who's the Boss? and The Young and the Restless, Walker gained attention with a role in the 1999 film Varsity Blues, and his TV days were officially behind him. After working in teen movies such as She's All That and The Skulls,

Walker got his breakthrough role in 2001 with The Fast and the Furious, which would become his star vehicle and keep him busy through four sequels and a short prequel. The Fast and the Furious franchise established Walker as an action-film mainstay, and he went on to appear in several films in the genre, including Takers, Hours and Vehicle 19. Walker died in a car accident on November 30, 2013, at age 40.

Early Years

Born on September 12, 1973, in Glendale, California, Paul Walker appeared in front of the camera at a young age, modeling and acting in television shows such as Charles in Charge, Highway to Heaven and Who's the Boss. In 1986, he made his film debut in the horror spoof Monster in the Closet while also landing a recurring role on TV's Throb.

After high school, Walker attended various California community colleges, but he dove into acting full-time in 1993, taking a role in the soap opera The Young and the Restless. After a handful of TV guest roles and the lead in Tammy and the T-Rex, Walker starred in the family comedy Meet the Deedles and left his TV career behind for good.

Walker's next role was a big one for his career: He appeared opposite Reese Witherspoon in the critically acclaimed, high-concept Pleasantville. From that point on, Walker found himself in starring roles in such late-1990s films as She's All That, Varsity Blues and The Skulls—all pitched at a teen audience which helped turn Walker into a heartthrob.

The Role of a Lifetime

In 2001, Walker's career hit overdrive when he landed a leading role alongside up-and-comer Vin Diesel in The Fast and the Furious. A film that paid homage to road films of the 1970s, The Fast and the Furious brought Walker to new heights of fame on the way to box-office receipts of more than $200 million.

Two years later, the franchise was back with its first sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and Walker was again along for the ride. The film's gross was even larger than the first, and a bona fide hit series was under way. Walker then appeared in a few more action-oriented movies, including Timeline (2003), Into the Blue (2005) and Running Scared (2006), while also signing on to appear in the ensemble drama Noel (2004) and the children's adventure movie Eight Below (2006).

Walker also showed his range as an actor in the 2006 war drama Flags of Our Fathers, directed by Clint Eastwood. He continued to take on more action movie roles in The Death and Life of Bobby Z (2007), Takers (2010) and Fast Five (2011)—the third installment of the Fast and Furious franchise.

In 2012, Walker signed on to film The Fast and the Furious 6 (2013), keeping the series' momentum going.

While not filming, Walker was active in Reach Out Worldwide, a nonprofit organization he formed in 2010 to bring aid to regions devastated by natural disasters.

Tragic Death

Walker died in a car accident on November 30, 2013 at the age of 40. Walker was in Santa Clarita, California to attend a charity event for Reach Out Worldwide to benefit victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. He was reportedly in the passenger seat of a Porsche when his friend who was driving lost control, crashing the vehicle into a tree. The car was engulfed in flames and both individuals were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

At the time of his death, Walker was working on two upcoming films: Brick Mansions and Fast & Furious 7, both slated to be released in 2014.

PAUL “St Paul” DUNNAVILLE IS A PRODUCER WITH A PURPOSE Tags: st paul music producer hip hop st paul production feature artist word life production

As a producer, St Paul is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to his craftsmanship and grasp on the global beat scene.  The Philly resident, musician, and community leader was born in Queens NY, earning his hip-hop stripes by break dancing and beat boxing, and banging on lunch tables (which soon became drums) throughout his youth.  He also absorbed the early raw sound of hip-hop from the legendary DJ’s Red Alert and Chuck Chillout.

 

While in college he kept his drumming skills sharp as he started to experiment with various genres of music, and played in Rock, R&B, Hip Hop and Jazz groups.  He graduated from Virginia Tech in 2000, having build a solid foundation academically and musically, stayed there as a resident to continue his musical endeavors with 2 hip hop groups Barefoot Sound, and True Sound. Later on a few of the members founded Simply Laced Music Group.

 

In 2003, shortly after moving to Philadelphia, he founded St Paul Productions, a company geared towards offering after school workshops in music production and songwriting, and quickly becoming a local favorite amongst the youth in the Philadelphia region.  His workshops counterbalance the negative energy associated with a majority of today’s rap music and pop culture and bring the youth back into the true essence of hip hop music.

 

In early 2009, he earned executive production credits, releasing the first global hip hop compilation to be created through Indaba Music. Known as The PaperCha$erz, the mixtape series focuses on showcasing independent rap artists from all over the world.  Vol 2 was released recently (4-8-11) and features the legendary Craig G.  Outside of Indaba, he’s putting the finishing touches on 2 major projects – Celestial Waters and his follow up to The Coltrane Project, ColtraneSoul.  In addition he recently inked a single deal with UK based label Carbon Logic.

 

Future plans include expanding the youth workshop division of St Paul Productions, releasing his 3rdendeavor with Indaba Music, and growing the Simply Laced Music family.
