Katy Perry says that American Idol is ‘all about the contestants’
October 4th, 2017 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: none ]

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.


Seacrest In

After months of speculation whether or not Ryan Seacrest will return as the host of American Idol on its new network ABC. Right before Live with Kelly and Ryan aired, Seacrest announced that he was going to break some big news on the show. It did not take a genius to realize what the news is. Then a few minutes into the show, Ripa stole his thunder and revealed that Seacrest is in again.

When he got to talk about it, he said, “I don’t know if you’ve ever been in a 15 year relationship and then for a reason you that really don’t know you break up, You know, it’s like all of a sudden the show was going, we thought well and then all of a sudden we broke up. And I thought, ‘Gosh it’d be great to get back together at some point,’” That point is obviously now.

Seacrest also revealed that the show will tape in Los Angeles and the eliminated contestant will appear on Live the next day.

Am I excited for his return? No. I think they really needed to change things up because what they were doing was not working and that is why it was cancelled. Having Katy Perry and him on the singing competition is not going to get people to tune in and ABC really needs us to tune in. I do think people will tune in for the first episode, but after that they will be outer than Seacrest.

Are you excited for American Idol’s return or did you need to miss it a lot longer?


Would Paula Abdul rejoin American Idol as a Judge?

Simon Cowell has already made it clear that he has no interest in the American Idol reboot on ABC, but what about Paula Abdul? She told The Insider, “I just think, the judging thing, I feel I’ve hung up my judging skills.”

But how does she feel when it comes to the show returning after only a year off. She said, “My feeling is, is it really too soon to have an outlet and an amazing platform for young hopefuls to become superstars? I don’t think so. I think there is never enough.” I think you can have too many, which is why so many of the talent shows have been cancelled over the last few years.

You have to admit it is pretty interesting that the biggest names from American Idol 1.0 want nothing to do with the ABC show. In fact, not only have 2 of the 3 original judges said no, Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson have committed to doing The Voice over AI 2.0. That sings volumes, don’t you think?
