Will there be some sour notes in the 18th season of the American Idol TV show on ABC? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like American Idol is cancelled or renewed for season 19. Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustration when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we invite you to rate all of the 18th season episodes of American Idol here. *Status update below.
An ABC revival of the music competition series, American Idol often airs twice a week. Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan return as judges in season 18 with Ryan Seacrest as host and Bobby Bones as the in-house mentor. After making it through the nationwide audition process, the contestant pool is narrowed through a series of elimination rounds. Once the contest reaches the semi-finals, although the judges offer their criticism, the decision to keep or cut a performer is up to the viewing audience. For a specified window of time, fans may vote for their favorites, via phone calls, text messages, and online. The winner claims the “American Idol” title and a recording contract.
What do you think? Which season 18 episodes of the American Idol TV series do you rate as wonderful, terrible, or somewhere between? Do you think that American Idol should be cancelled or renewed for a 19th season on ABC? Don’t forget to vote, and share your thoughts, below.
*5/16/20 update: American Idol has been renewed for season 19 by ABC.
We love to watch American Idol, Love Luke Bryan! Please keep him on as a judge! Lionel is good to. I’m Glad there will be another season! Thank you! Keep it going!
I love American Idol! The judges crack me up! The three of them are the perfect trio, and my favorite judges of all time!
P.S. Steven Tyler was very entertaining, too.
We have watched idol since beginning and thought it was rough until Alejandro and talent like just Sam and Arthur Gunn are truly inspiring. Please stop love fest judging and acknowledge wanna be Louis is simply not good. We need friction and more tough feedback to get back to high ratings. Step out of box and maybe have original song week or more singing and less Katy Perry rambling.
Absolutely love the judges although I don’t always agree with them. My granddaughter and I watch American Idol together. I have watched it for years.
The judges are horrible . Get new judges or re-cancel this show .
I loved Idol, but this season is horrible. If it stays this way, it should be cancelled.
Last week they put a woman through who is obsessed with The Bachelor which happens to be on the same network. They even showed clips of it. Instead of the judges giving her the golden ticket Katy Perry called the host of The Bachelor to virtualy give it to her. If that wasnt preplanned I dont know what was. I lost all respect for the show at that point.
Overstayed its welcome!
Loved Idol since the beginning,will always watch no matter what,never miss an episode!
