American Idol

ABC announced today that Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, and Ryan Seacrest will all be back for the 20th season of American Idol. Its 5th on ABC.

“Luke, Katy, Lionel and Ryan are music and industry icons that have become synonymous with ‘Idol’ on ABC,” said Rob Mills, executive vice president, Unscripted and Alternative Entertainment, Walt Disney Television. “Their star power is unmatched, and their support is a gift to our contestants that have deeply benefited from their wisdom over the past four seasons—and they’re ready to do it again. As we begin a momentous season, I think it’s safe to say this dream team has officially cemented their legacy on ‘Idol.’”

I really wish they would have changed things up. I think that would have helped the singing competition show like Ariana Grande will help The Voice for their 20th in the Fall.

Auditions start on Friday. To see where they will be going, then click here!


Caleb Kennedy out of American Idol after an old racist video surfaces with him

Caleb Kennedy made it to the top 5 on American Idol this past Sunday, but he will not be performing this week. That is because he was forced to leave the singing competition after an old video surfaced of him with a friend dressed in a KKK hood.

“Hey y’all, this is gonna be a bit of a surprise, but I am no longer gonna be on American Idol,” Kennedy wrote on social media. “There was a video that surfaced on the Internet and it displayed actions that were not meant to be taken in that way. I was younger and did not think about the actions, but that’s not an excuse. I wanna say sorry to all my fans and everyone who I have let down. I’ll be taking a little time off social media to better myself, but saying that, I know this has hurt and disappointed a lot of people and made people lose respect for me. I’m so sorry! I pray that I can one day regain your trust in who I am and have your respect! Thank you for supporting me.”

According to KABC’s George Pennacchio, the show will go on with only four contestants this Sunday. I guess that means no one will be eliminated this week.

ABC had no choice but to get rid of him after Roseanne sent a racist tweet, and this season’s Bachelor contestant Rachael Kirkconnell who was photographed at a party at a Plantation a few years ago. When Chris Harrison defended her, he was asked to take a break from the franchise. Therefore, any perception of racism by anyone on their network will lead to that person’s dismissal (unless all of their stuff was pretaped).

Back to Idol, Kennedy is the second person to leave the show this season who was not eliminated. Wyatt Pike asked to leave for personal reasons when he made the top 12.


What did Paula Abdul mean when she called Simon Cowell ‘The STD’?

On Monday night, Paula Abdul filled in for Luke Bryan, who has COVID-19, on American Idol. Not only was she reunited with Ryan Seacrest, but Randy Jackson called it in. While she was speaking to her old co-judge, she called Simon Cowell “The STD.”

What does that mean? Is she saying he is like herpes and he won’t go away. Nope. The singer told Entertainment Tonight that STD means “Sexy. Talented. Debonair.”

Do you believe her, or do you think that is cap?


Paula Abdul returns to American Idol as a judge

Luke Bryan found out the hard way that margaritas do not kill coronavirus. That is because he tested positive for it.

“I’m sad to say I won’t be a part of tonight’s first live @AmericanIdol show,” Bryan wrote. “I tested positive for COVID but I’m doing well and look forward to being back at it soon.”

Since the show must go on, it will. “Luke will be missed at our first #AmericanIdol LIVE show tonight, but he is resting now in quarantine at home and we’re wishing him a speedy recovery,” American Idol wrote in a statement. “We’re so excited to announce @paulaabdul will be stepping in as a guest judge to join Lionel Richie and Katy Perry as we get closer to crowning a new winner!”

Abdul was the first judge to leave the singing competition when it was on Fox. It will be interesting to see how much things have changed since she left the show in 2009.

I am so curious about how Abdul will do. I might actually watch it. Are you going to check it out too?


Can you tell which golf cart is Lionel Richie’s and which one is Luke Bryan’s?

Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan are hard at work on American Idol. Each of the judges needs a golf cart to get around, so the show customized it for them.

The R&B legend’s came with an afro, a mustache, sunglasses, and a vanity place that reads “hello.” While the Country star’s came with a nautical theme and plate that says “gon fishing.” Both are perfect for them.

I wonder what Katy Perry’s looks like. I bet it is loud, with a bullhorn, just like her.
