American Idol Rebooted on ABC
Published: May 10, 2017
The original singing compeition is coming back. American Idol, the show that launched the careers of Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood is being brought back to TV via ABC. Announced this morning, the show will debut sometime during the 2017-2018 season schedule.
The once successful singing contest aired on FOX in 2002. Massive ratings lead to the licensing of American Idol to different countries. After a very successful decade, the show started to fade in ratings and shuffling of hosts and judges began it's downfall. NBC's The Voice came charging to the scene not long after that a long with talent shows such as America's Got Talent led to the eventual downfall of American Idol.
No word on who is going to be the judges, or even the host. I would not be surprised to see a new lineup to give the show a fresh take.
Here's hoping for more success and hopefully more memorable auditions! Let us know below
