Blake is leaving the show and it sounds permanent à la Adam/Xtina.
Its hit rate in terms of launching even semi-successful careers is appalling, but it still outperforms most scripted shows so it's probably got a few years in it yet.This really is the moment to let it go, it’s almost cruel to the contestants now given how little they seem to get out of it. Kelly coming back for Blake, pull out Adam and Gwen for the battles or some other ratings catching gimmicks and ride off into the sunset. I do hope Kelly is only in it for one season and can use it to boost her new album!!!
It's obvious there's no budget for a full KC album so TV or not TV that won't change for now.
An album is finished sis, they're planning to release it in the new year.
