American Idol is gearing up for its return, and the series is trying to lock in more judges before auditions start next month. Katy Perry has already signed on to take one of the spots on the panel.
Who will join her once the series returns to its new home on ABC?
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie, and Charlie Puth are all in talks to join Perry on the panel.
Ryan Seacrest and the panel will start auditions for the revival season of American Idol on August 17. Are you excited for the return of this reality series? Tell us what you think.
I have never missed one of there shows I record them to be sure was upset when it went off the air but the new judges don’t look appealing to me will watch the first one and then make a decision the voice has the best judges except for Miley c blake and Adam make that show
It was canceled for a reason…people were tired of it. I had stopped watching at lest 5 years before it was canceled. America’s Got Talent is way better…and it has (and always has had) better judges.
I too was tired of watching American Idol.
I know right. I said I would only watch if Simon returns but he said he won’t return so I won’t be watching
I would love to see American Idol return.
It is important to me who the judoes will be . To me they can make or break the show.
I think everybody are fed up of watching American Idol. They would rather want The X Factor back on our screens. Maybe without Simon Cowell on the judging panel, since he’s too busy judging on The X Factor UK, Britain’s Got Talent and America’s Got Talent. Fox could’ve kept The X Factor on the air without Simon on the panel and they also could’ve found his replacement.
I agree with you, Jess.
Come on, FremantleMedia. Bring The X Factor back. It was one of the best TV shows I’ve ever watched. I’ve never missed one episode until it went off the air.
Oh, I miss The X Factor so much.
I’m glad A.I. is coming back…I have nothing against the new judges, I like Keith Urban and JLo…just my prefrence…
Im really looking forward of the return of american idle. Alot of undiscovered talent was found on your show.its tobad that Randy isnt coming back.
It should be great always enjoyed the show hope it’s good as the old one will definitely watch
I am so excited. I have missed American Idol. Would love to see Keith Urban and JLO back.
WITH THAT LINEUP IS DOOMED BEFORE IT STARTS. I CERTAINLY WON’T BE WATCHING!!!!!!!!!
The show will be judged by the “star” it produces.
They need a record producer as a judge of talent.
This could overcome the bad choice of Katy Perry.
Let’s have The X Factor back instead.
I mean, let’s have The X Factor back, too.
I AGREE!!! Forgot about X Factor!! Another great show highly regarded and extremely missed!! Perhaps ABC should’ve picked that up instead! Minus Demi Lovato, ( not such a big fan) didn’t think she did the show much justice and probably the reason ratings dropped…. again, just my opinion.. but anyway, great suggestion, I totally agree!
Ugh!!! Please ABC !! Seriously??! You let a Great show like (NASHVILLE) go, to bring back the stale, old, same, what never seems to be ending auditions, American Idol??!! And Ryan Seacrest again??!!! UGH We won’t be watching this time around! We have America’s Got Talent & The Voice, which are way more appealing, never seem to get boring, always seem to make us smile, and OH… BTW, even when a judge changes now & again, it stays totally about the theme of the show!! No drama between celebrities, cat fighting.. blah, blah, etc… and actual musicians recognizing the new… Read more »
I am very happy it is back. Hope to audition
I wont be watching American Idol for the first time since it started. Katy is nasty. She is for everything a lot of us are against. The celebrities that voice there opinions what ever they are need to learn we dont care what a celebrity thinks. She has condemned America n that is not who i think should represent American Idol
Even though I have not been a big fan, the show is now as American as apple pie. Hope it continues.
Judges leave me not caring to watch. They had great judges and good on air chemistry. Jlo keith harry. How about an x idol as a judge.
What are you saying? American Idol? or The X Factor?
