“American Idol” Reboot Finally Has Three Judges

 

ABC has decided to reboot a new season of “American Idol.”

The first judge, Katy Perry, was announced several months ago alongside Ryan Secrest who will be returning as the host. Perry has already done a few hosting jobs including the MTV Music Awards and she guest hosted an episode of “American Idol” in 2010. Luke Bryan, the second judge, was announced months after Perry and brings the funny, likable essence former host Randy Jackson had and he can bring in the country viewers. He’s the show’s answer to the Voice’s popular coach Blake Shelton. The final judge, Lionel Richie, was selected as he has a ton of experience in the music industry and is one of the best-selling recording artists of all time. He’s known for working with a plethora of artists and is well-loved by all. These three judges seem like a great fit for the new “American Idol” reboot that’ll be premiering in 2018.

The show ended after 15 seasons in 2016. It was cancelled due to expensive production costs and low ratings. The show was originally known for it’s three staple judges: Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell. After all three left, several other judges were brought in but swapped out every few seasons. They included Steven Tyler, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. ABC decided to pick up the show as it’s an entertainment icon and will be shown along with ABC’s other fan-favorite shows such as “The Bachelor” and “Dancing with the Stars.” ABC believes it’s the right network to help relight the fan base “American Idol” once had.
