AMERICAN IDOL, the iconic series that revolutionized the television landscape by pioneering the music competition genre, will return to airwaves on SUNDAY, MARCH 11 at 8|7c, at its new home on ABC.

The nationwide search for the next superstar kicked off in August 2017, as the Idol Bus traveled from Portland, Oregon, to Orlando, Florida, in its pursuit for talent, covering 23 cities across the country. Auditioning was made easier than ever as hopefuls also had the opportunity to submit audition videos online, as well as via select social media platforms using an official tag, #TheNextIdol, cultivating over 300,000 posts. Also, for the first time in “American Idol” history, hopefuls had the opportunity to audition through a livestream platform.

Helping to determine who America will ultimately vote for to become the next singing sensation, are music industry forces and superstar judges, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Emmy® Award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest will return as host of the beloved series.

    Mara is the winner by miles and miles and miles. The only reason she wasn't put through is age and that's just stupid.

    OMG!! How dare Katy Perry say "she needs to tone it down" that's like telling Janis Joplin, Prince, Jimi Hendrix, or even Michael Jackson to "tone it down" if its in her soul its in her soul! You can tell she sings with full heart and soul! She isn't trying to hard or faking! This is her to the full. She gives what she feels! Totally disgusted by her comment! Please dont change Mara!

    Her energy is good but you can tell she's overdoing it a lot. You don't need to be loud to sound good.

    Too bad American Idol judges snuffed out this high energy girls spirit and talked her into a more stagnant style. Took away a big part of her identity. They should have left her alone to do her own thing and she would have been fine. I had her picked to be in the top 3. Is it unfair how the top 14 show went? Absolutely it was. Less talented kids went through for sure.
