‘American Idol’s’ Randy Jackson Unconcerned Over William Hung Repeat

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When American Idol’s new season begins January 17, viewers will see the good, the bad, and the ugly, but judge Randy Jackson isn’t so focused on the bad and ugly.

Jackson isn’t worried this season will produce another William Hung-type success story that could detract from other more talented contestants.

In his words, “We get a cross section of everything you get in America” but adds, “I think William Hung definitely makes Kelly Clarkson look amazing, don’t you?”

He further explains his position, saying as Simon Cowell says, you’re only going to find five amazing performers. “It’s about the best you can find.”

Still, Jackson won’t say if the bad singers aren’t getting worse but insists, “This year they’re getting better than ever.”
