Ashland Native to Appear on American Idol

Ashland Native to Appear on American Idol

While the show might not be a completely flawless format for new artists, Alaina is still thrilled to see it returning in 2018, after being off the air for two years.

If ABC has set lower expectations, then those can nearly certainly be met - not necessarily aspiring to become the music competition version of "America's Funniest Home Videos", but a franchise that can match or marginally improve upon those waning days on Fox. If you're curious about what's on tonight, American Idol is set to make its triumphant return to television and potentially deliver America' next pop music sensation. 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.

They also come up short in terms of "selling the dream" when someone gets pushed through to Hollywood.

Katy Perry: "I don't think your voice has seen its ultimate potential, for sure".

"If you want a cheap show, don't make American Idol", says Frot-Coutaz. "But to change the show drastically in terms of format, I think, would be a mistake". But can you rebuild the Death Star? You have to, like, light yourself on fire on Instagram while singing.

Bryan turned to none other than Blake Shelton, who got his Hollywood start as a coach on NBC's hit reality competition show, The Voice.

You might not see this coming from the network that only this week broadcast the footage of a woman being dumped by her fiancé on The Bachelor for the supposed entertainment of millions, but ABC's Idol - so far - looks to be a kinder, gentler version than Fox's. You know, America doesn't need another star. "They need, like, a real legit American Idol".

Why did super-busy music superstars Katy, Luke, and Lionel want to join the show?

Lionel Richie was the last judge selected. "I always say it goes back to the old school". Partly due to the rotating judges.

Well, we don't know yet! "Those are three really good things he has going for him". "I consider myself the instructor basically".

She explained to People: "We really encourage them". Now after ten years and a lot of aging and learning, I can take all that information and really mentor and give constructive criticism, because that's really what we do. Also intact is the goal of finding a music star - one such as Carrie Underwood, who built a blockbuster career after winning "Idol" in 2005 and whose voice-over opens the ABC show.

Luke Bryan reported it's fun for him.

"I sang parts of Techno Cumbia in Spanish and Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato". And "Timeless" visits Marie Curie and the French front in World War I. "I jumped right on it". I'm on the emotional ride with these kids. "I used to listen to Disney songs from the cartoons and I started singing them".
