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.

    This year's AI sucks. There are a lot of flaws in this performance. I'm surprised people can't hear that.

    Wow. I can't believe the negative comments! This is one of only five complete seasons of American Idol that I have watched but Gabby is the best contestant that I've ever seen, by far. She'll have a thousand decisions to make after AI and one or more bad decisions could prevent her from becoming a star but she certainly has ENORMOUS POTENTIAL.

    I recommend people to watch Maria, the winner of Indonesian Idol 2018, singing this song.

    proof that just because someone can hold a tune doesn't mean they are a star. she shouldn't be in the top 5.

    I was born and raised in the South. My wife is from the exact area that this young lady is from. No one there talks like this kid. She is a wanna be southerner. Her phony accent will not do well with country music fans. She can sing, but she is not real.

    Whitney Mariah and Celine songs should just be off limits to contestants on these shows. This was awful. Why do people want to listen to this girl strain??

    Gabby is a great singer and she made a good attempt at this song. In terms of vocal tonality and pitch, it wasn’t there. This song isn’t for her because even though she has the power, her voice does not hold a round tone for this song. You could tell that when she was hitting the high notes, there was a hint of her voice straining.

    Young people don't like country songs, and that's why they don't listen to Caleb and Maddie as much. Gabby Barrett is the only contestant who can sing R&B and soft rock songs. Despite this lousy performance, she will be in top 2.
