New Orleans singer on 'American Idol'

New Orleans singer on 'American Idol'

American Idol returns this weekend, with a new home (ABC) and new judges (Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan).

On Sunday, American Idol is officially an ABC show - so we're telling you how to watch American Idol online and watch American Idol live this weekend to catch the first episode of the new season on its new network. There are three celebrity judges (this time, they are Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan), a series of auditions that enable amateur vocalists to show off their talents, and eventually a Hollywood-based sing-off that winnows the pack down, week after week, to a singular victor. "American Idol" premieres March 11 at 8 PM ET/PT on ABC.

According to the network, no North Carolina "Idol" hopefuls are featured in the first two episodes, but contestants may turn up in later episodes.

And, in case you're wondering, they're going to be handling audition clips different when American Idol returns.

There also seems to be a bit more humanity in Idol 2.0, with fewer auditions for truly terrible singers sent in just so we can laugh at and mock them, and more of those meant-to-be-heartwarming segments that show the singers back home in their real lives.

Ryan Zinke Is Getting New Doors
Last month, HUD secretary Ben Carson withdrew an order for pricey dining room furniture after the price was revealed. But this would hardly be the first time that Secretary Ryan Zinke spent taxpayer money on an unusual expenditure.

Check out our full American Idol schedule for the season ahead here. I won't crucify anyone this year for being nice, even if they're just performatively nice.

Is Ryan Seacrest going to be there? If you're a singer, maybe, maybe not. And "Timeless" visits Marie Curie and the French front in World War I. In fact, Bryan, Perry and Richie seem to get along much better than some past judge lineups on "American Idol". It's a kinder, gentler show that, at least in the first two-hour episode, jettisons Simon Cowell-style cutting commentary and more fully embraces positivity and uplift.

For starters, the gimmick has been diluted by the numerous follow-up seasons (this will be the sixteenth "Idol") and various competitive shows. I remind myself and I'm reminded and I'm inspired by all of their stories. "It was really awesome because they kept saying they loved the depth of my writing", she said. "Here's the deal", she continues, "You're not a pop star". To get you even more excited - and, we suppose, make the wait even longer - here's what you should expect from the reboot of the singing competition. Recently, Bryan appeared on several morning shows to talk about his judging gig and said that prior to taking the job, he hadn't realized how many people he'd have to say "no" to in the auditions.

"As a judge, you know, we're gonna make some mistakes here", Luke points out. The other stars graded the performances, and at the end of each episode the two lowest-ranked contestants had a sing-off.
