The all new American Idol returns on ETC!

The journey to discover the next American Idol lives on!

Back in August 2017, the Idol Bus traveled from Portland, Oregon, to Orlando, Florida for the kick-off of the nationwide search for the next superstar, covering 23 cities across the country. For the first time in American Idol history, auditioning was made easier for the hopefuls as they had the opportunity to submit their audition materials online and via select social media platforms using the official hashtag #TheNextIdol. They were also given the opportunity to audition via a livestream platform. For this edition of American Idol, the show garnered over 300,000 posts from hopefuls.

In the all new American Idol, music industry forces and superstar judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie will help determine who America will ultimately vote for to become the next singing sensation! Also returning on the show is the award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest.
