Will Idol's new superstar judges bring the brutal honesty

Will Idol's new superstar judges bring the brutal honesty

As Bryan was finishing up his promotional tour for American Idol, Shelton was about ready to serve up another round of jabs. And then American Idol called, and I jumped right on it. Kelly Clarkson, who won the first season of "American Idol", beating out Justin Guarini, revealed she wasn't thrilled about winning the competition because the grand prize included a movie deal.

Alyssa Raghu of Orlando, Florida trys out for the return of "American Idol" on Sunday, March 11, 2018.

The premiere even features an extended segment that mocks an immigrant's singing ability and uses that to slowly raise its middle finger to its competition, The Voice-a gesture that would have been fun if it wasn't another example of the show being a giant industrial shredder while insisting it's an origami teacher.

According to online ticket reseller VividSeasts.com, which recently released a map of "The Most Popular Artist in Every State" based on ticket data, the country singer is Arkansas' favorite performer.

On the other hand, the new judges are the most obvious point of differentiation from the past few seasons on FOX. I was in their shoes ten years ago.

But still, 13 million people tuned in to see someone named Trent Harmon win that 15th season, and that's a pretty good number in our crowded TV landscape.

You can tune in for the premiere of American Idol Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Seacrest is joined by new panelists Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry, who will try to make their mark and get TV audiences to come back to the show we all thought was over. "But I walked across campus, sat down in a piano rehearsal room, recorded a video and submitted it that day". I know it wasn't an overnight success for me; it's not going to be for them. When you talk about a mean Idol judge, you're ultimately talking about Simon Cowell, who became a star in America by telling Americans they just weren't good enough. It retains the original host, Ryan Seacrest, along with the same logo and production companies. Seacrest has denied the charge and E! said its internal investigation did not find proof of wrongdoing. You can also live stream on ABC official website (only for viewers in the United States and its territories), HULU or PlayStation Vue. New Orleans singer, Mikey Duran will be on the hit show.

"You are unique. You killed it", said Lionel. And given all the Disney pixie dust - or wait, is that just glitter from Katy Perry's eye shadow? - that's been sprinkled all over the whole endeavor, the new Idol often may make you want to gag even while it's coaxing tears out of your ducts.

It's important that you know exactly what kind of American Idol fan you're dealing with-I adored the show.
