I tried a Google and Google News search focusing on both FreemantleMedia and 19 Entertainment. Got nothing. Now it's a mystery I have to solve!

Well I saw the statement so I just thought I'd post it multiply places have posted it I don't know where it was specifically from but it's supposed to me from those three places. To me it's not a problem if it closes doesn't interest me much and American idol the show is not as good as it used to be.

Its weird show is not popular yet it fits the true MGM Studios theme more then anything in the past few years.

I agree but it's based off a tv show and those don't last for ever so it's going to end at some point. I also think DHS is going to start going in a new direction away from that Hollywood theme to more of universal type park. We may even see another name change to just disney studios.

I agree; I thought it was an odd decision at the time. The ratings were already dropping when it opened in 2009.

I'm happy for this. I think its for the best amd hopefully something exciting will be replacing it. Star Wars seems to be a high candidate for occupying that spot given some of the attractions around the AI Experience.

I attended a showing a few weeks ago and there were only 2 contestants instead of 3. I've always enjoyed the attraction.

I always enjoyed American Idol. We always went to the last show when the day's winners performed.

Wasn't there a rumor that they were putting a Frozen Sing-a-Long in there?

SO GLAD TO HEAR THIS! This is the only attraction at WDW that I've never been in. Glad to see it changing.

The rumor originally was JTA then it changed to Frozen Sing-Along. Nothing definite or official has been mentioned.
