Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Ryan Seacrest are still American Idols

Dancing with the Stars changed things up this season by eliminating Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews from the show for Tyra Banks. After that announcement, I wondered if ABC would do the same with American Idol. Today we found out the singing competition is keeping all of their talent around.

“Katy [Perry], Lionel [Richie] and Luke [Bryan] are fun, astute and really know how to spot talent,” said executive producer and showrunner Trish Kinane. “Their chemistry is undeniable, and we are delighted that they, along with host Ryan Seacrest, are returning to find the next superstar and take ‘American Idol’ to new heights next season.”

TBH the only judge who knew how to find talent, was Paula Abdul. After she left the Idol, they never had a huge artist again. Maybe they should change things up and find musicians who really have an eye for talent. What do you think?

BTW Since Perry is coming back, we have a new drinking game for this season. Every time she talks about her baby, take a sip from your baby bottle filled with alcohol. If she wears something ridiculous, then you have to finish the whole bottle by the end of that episode. Doesn’t that sound fun?


Is Luke Bryan losing it on American Idol?

Lionel Richie shared a video of Luke Bryan dancing for Katy Perry after a long day of filming at Disneyland, and I think the Country singer might be losing it. I mean how else can explains those moves? They are those of a drunk guy at the bar around 3a trying to pick up the last few women that are still there and not someone who is a judge on American Idol. Which makes it a good thing that dancing is not one of the requirements for the singing competition or he would not be sitting at the judges’ table.


Lionel Richie says hello to tour bus in front of his house

As Lionel Richie was leaving his house the other day, there was a tour bus in front of it. What did he do? He got of his car and said to them, “Hello, is it me you’re looking for?” He was and they were dancing on the ceiling to see the legendary singer. In fact, they were in so in shock of seeing an actual celebrity that they almost forgot to ask for a photo for with him. Luckily, they remember before it was too late, otherwise, they would have been upset with themselves all night, all night long.


BTWF ads: Jaleel White for Pepsi

Before Jaleel White had those Urkel dance moves on Family Matters, he was showing them off for Lionel Richie in a Pepsi ad. How cute was the 8-year-old in that 1985 commercial?


Lionel Richie reveals Hello started out as a joke
December 28th, 2017 under Lionel Richie. [ Comments: none ]

When you think of the love ballads from the ’80s, you think of Lionel Richie’s Hello. The slow song made women swoon all over the world, but wait until you hear how the song came about. He told CBS This Morning, “My producer, James Anthony Carmichael, he was coming by the house. And he walked around the corner and I said, ‘Hello, is it me you’re looking for?’ And I’m falling out laughing. And he turned to me and said, ‘Finish that.’ I finished the song, and we lushed it up with strings, forever and forever.”

How many times have you picked up the phone and said to someone, “Hello, is it me you’re looking for,” because of that song as a joke. Turns out we subconsciously we knew how that chart topping tune got its start. And my question to you, does it change your perception of the single?

Talking about single, that was something he did not want to be. You see, that is how The Commodores got their start. He told the morning news program, “This was a college band, how-can-we-meet-all-the-girls-in-the-dormitory band. You know, it was not supposed to be the career.” Nearly 50 years later, what was not supposed to be his career is still how he is making a living. Funny how life has it ways of working out.
