ALOTT5MA UPDATE DESK: Last year, I asked whether the American Idol Experience at Disney had updated its judges to take into account changes in the judging panel. At least as of last Thursday, the panel I saw consisted of surprisingly substantive skinny black man, pretty but mostly incoherent blonde woman, and bearded guy who delivered one-liner insults ("You say you're a stay at home mom? Stay at home, mom!"), so it seems they've stuck with original recipe panel. I saw the first show on a slow day, so we only had two competitors, and the very pretty brunette who haltingly stumbled her way through "Bubbly" beat the less attractive woman who delivered a decent rendition of "Hit Me With Your Best Shot." I did not opt to audition.
