American Idol 2010, Last Night Recap: Judges Kept Short & Sweet

To me, one of the best parts of American Idol is the commentary that comes from the judges after each contestant performs. The commenting portion of American Idol has literally been the launching pad for people like Simon Cowell.

Last night’s American Idol was a bit different than the previous episodes.

American Idol Last Night – Runtime was shorter

Did you even notice that the American Idol show was a little bit shorter than all the others?

That’s right, American Idol last night ran for a total of 88 minutes.

The usual runtime for American Idol is a solid 2 hours (120 minutes).

The short runtime on American Idol actually forced the judges to keep their commentary short, sweet, and to the point.

I think that Simon Cowell is always short and to the point every time he speaks. However, the other judges can, as times, get a bit long winded.

So what did you think about last nights American Idol?

And did you even notice the shorter runtime?
