American Idol gets a premiere date
November 6th, 2017 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: 2 ]

If you have been dying to know when American Idol will be back, well it is time to come back to life. That’s because Ryan Seacrest announced today on Live with Kelly and Ryan that the singing competition will debut on Sunday, March 11th. Which means it will be airing not only on a new network, with new judges (Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan), it will also be airing on a new night. So make sure to keep your Sunday nights free from 8-10p for American Idol.

What this means for the rest of ABC’s lineup, I am sure we will find out soon enough. I am sure Shark Tank will go back to Fridays and the Grey’s Anatomy spinoff will get the post-Idol timeslot. ABC desperately needs to have more than one hit because all of their new shows that aren’t called The Good Doctor are failing. Plus, some of their ageing shows are feeling their age.


Katy Perry looks like discarded carnival cotton candy

American Idol 2.0 was in New Orleans over the weekend for auditions and the new judges, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, threw out beads to the fans. But that was not what I was focusing on here, I could not stop staring at the California Gurl’s dress. The pale pink and light blue feathered dress with her white blonde hair and fair skin, makes her look like a half-eaten cotton candy stick that a kid dropped at a carnival and their parents would not let them pickup and eat. Translation it is like that feeling when you eat too much carnival food.

Perry, there is a time and place for your over-the-top outfits, and American Idol is not one of them. OK! On the final night yes, but it is going to distract from the music if you continue wearing dresses like that up until they announce the winner.


Katy Perry says that American Idol is ‘all about the contestants’

Katy Perry, who seems to make everything about her, said on Good Morning America today that the upcoming season of American Idol on ABC is “all about the contestants.” Then she elaborated by saying, “We [Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie] are secondary. We’re just there to kind of support. And we truly want to find someone that we can give a lift off to and give a name.”

She says that now, after one whole day of auditions. But we are talking about the California Gurl and I am sure by next week, she will be back to it being about her. I mean, why else would she take a $25 paycheck if she really wanted to foster the next singing star’s career? But that is just my thought.

I also think that the three of them are lacking chemistry, but that is what happens when you finalize the judges just days before you begin filming. What made American Idol work with Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson was their chemistry. Once they started messing with that, the show went down hill. And it tanked the year they put enemies Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj at the table together. Without them playing off of each other, there are going to have a hard time finding an audience.

Did you feel that they are harmonizing or they are acting like three solo acts during this interview? Seems like we will get a definitive answer sometime after the Oscars because that is rumor when the new American Idol is set to debut.


Luke Bryan got an offer he could not refuse from American Idol

After four months of searching, American Idol has finally named a second judge. The person sitting next to the overpaid Katy Perry is Luke Bryan according to Variety. They finally got him to say yes, a week before they are set to film auditions for the singing competition show that is moving to ABC.

No word how much he is getting, but I think he should get more than Perry. His star is still rising and he is a whole lot less annoying. Plus, it will be fun to see what he writes on his hand to remember what to say like the time that he wrote the Star Spangled Banner on his hand when he sang it at a game.

When it comes to who will be sitting next them in 2018, that has yet to be decided. It will probably be someone really cheap because they spent too much money on Perry.

What do you think of Luke Bryan being a judge on American Idol?


Is American Idol in trouble?

Back in May, ABC announced that they hired Katy Perry to be a judge on American Idol. Now almost 4 months later, they have not hired anyone else to sit next to her. According to TMZ, time is running out to find the other 2 judges and it might cost them their $25 million girl.

TMZ says that they are just weeks away from filming the auditions with the judges and they need judges to film those auditions. If they do not find anyone to sit next to her, then they might have to delay filming and Perry is already committed to her tour. That means they might have to lose her if they cannot find any other judges to fill those seats. If they lose her, then they will have more money to pay the likes of Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. The latter is reportedly balking at his $6 million offer and who can blame him? I think he is worth more than Perry. Country does better with Idol’s viewers and he is still hot while her career is starting cool.

Even though, it sounds like Idol is in trouble. This is not the first time, they have gone this late to find judges and it all worked out in the end. They have also had guest judges during the audition phase and they can do that again. Letting Perry continue her tour and still remain with the singing competition. It is all not dim at this stage.

But in general it is. But we will talk about that, once we know what shows it is against and what other reality shows ABC is planning on airing in the Spring. Two factors that will definitely hurt the show that no one was asking for to return so quickly but ABC.
