American Idol producers have lowered the age limit for contestants to audition from 16 years to one year old, it has been announced.
"A lot of young, talented people are now seeking careers and representation even before their first birthday," said an A.I. source.
"I would urge all new mothers who feel that their kid may have a story to tell or is already displaying early signs of possessing a particular gift of ,say , mimicry or joke telling to contact the Show immediately.
We are extremely aware of our responsibility to showcase individuals from all walks of life irrespective of race, colour, creed or indeed age, so we thought it would be appropriate for us to spread the talent net ever wider .
If this innovation works as well as we expect, there's no telling how the show could develop in the next few years. One of our creative consultants is already preparing a brief on further reducing the age limit to include foetuses of more than 36 weeks gestational age. Media techniques have been improving by leaps and bounds over the last couple of years and we are confident that the new fibre optic technology recently introduced into medical centers can be adapted to suit our purposes.
Everyone connected with the Show has been energised by these developments and we can't wait to proceed to the Get Go Implementation Phase".
