'American Idol' 2018: What Does The Season 16 Winner Get?

  • Revamped 'American Idol' reaches more than 10 million

Ryan Seacrest will return as the show's host.

Seacrest emphasized that the show is "America's gold standard of music competitions". But Idol had, like much of broadcast television, hemorrhaged viewers by the end of its 15-year run. 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.

But insofar as all three judges have an abundance of success, charisma and stature, they can definitely make improvements in the weeks ahead. According to the Huffington Post, Dunkleman's exit from the show had unclear circumstances.

"Some people, they don't know that there are other lanes in the freeway so it's not just pop stardom", she said. They will come back to Hollywood and then they'll have to step up. "I think you were a bit rushed and I think that's because I sped up your BPM of the heartbeat". "To change the show drastically in terms of format, I think, would be a mistake".

LUKE BRYAN: When you look at what we're trying to do with "American Idol", it's not about what me and Lionel and Katy are doing. And you still might not get enough hits to really make sure that the song sticks.

"All I can tell you is that I've invited friendsto my house to watch the show". "They need, like, a real legit American Idol".

As usual, the first episodes of "American Idol" will revolve around the auditions, so those have been pretaped.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel set to serve 4th term
Following the SPD's emphatic decision for a new partnership, Merkel is expected to launch her fourth government by mid-March. Party leaders say they expect a "yes" vote to the coalition deal they hammered out with Merkel and her allies.

The judges are #Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan.

Lionel Richie said his answer is very simple, it's the teaching aspect to share his vast experience.

"The handsome part about this is the judging". Let us know by grading them in our poll. And then it happens to you and you go, oh my goodness, is it actually happening. I remind myself and I'm reminded and I'm inspired by all of their stories.

She explained to People: "We really encourage them".

"I just want to say that that was different". But I guess I'm really happy for the people who work on the show. Perry says that while the judges' goal is the same - to find a music superstar - they may be going about it in a different way.

Luke Bryan: "You have a great voice". I was in their shoes ten years ago.

During its vacation and shift to another, happier, "family-friendly" network, American Idol has not lost that mean streak. While it's not exactly the parade of ridicule that the show leaned into early in its life, the producers have delivered several delusional and bad singers to the judges.
