Idol Execs Give Back... Emmys Gig; Plus, Tour Details!

Apparently having exhausted themselves exhuming Elvis, American Idol bosses Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick have elected not to helm this year's Primetime Emmys. The ceremony's 59th edition will now be exec-produced by Ken Ehrlich, who has 27 Grammycasts and three Emmy shows (including last year's) under his belt. "After we wrapped the enormous effort of 'Idol Gives Back,' we looked at our upcoming slate of projects, including the American Idol finale and the additional shows we will be involved in this summer, and realized that we could not devote the creative energy and time necessary to make the Emmys outstanding for the Academy and Fox," Lythgoe and Warwick said in a statement. In other Idol news, the summer-tour schedule has been released, and the fun starts July 6 in Florida and concludes Sept. 22 in New Hampshah. Details at AmericanIdol.com. read more
