How to watch American Idol Season 16 premiere live online

Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Georgia's own Luke Bryan are taking over and breathing new life into the 16-year-old franchise.

Why mess with success was Seacrest's attitude when he was asked what would be different about the re-launch of American Idol?

The new judges, like the old ones, are also mostly OK. But the show, at its core, works in format and works in premise. But he really blows them away once he sits down at the piano and begins a soulful rendition of "Stay" by Rihanna.

The next surprise was Zach D'Onofrio, who walked out bearing socks custom-chosen for each judge. Catie Turner from Pennsylvania sings the judges an original song called "21st Century Machine", and wins them over with her unique perspective and strong sense of self. Read on below for the TV schedule of the show's episodes, live stream info, and more show details. Dyxie got one, too, valid starting in 2026, and she won over several new fans. You have different contestants.

Not fooling around!' As we get closer to the real deal I can nearly feel that we're going to be able to voice our opinions, ' he said, before adding the fighting words: 'I'm bringing my mace!' Ron Bultongez, 21, from Plano Texas - Oh my, his baby is precious - Lisa, wait, you're watching to see if he can sing. That can definitely be a good thing - and something that can help him going forward, though he now needs to make sure that the backstory isn't the overwhelming reason we remember him. You know, America doesn't need another star. Instead of saying them that they suck at singing, they suggest the singers that they aren't much suited for this American Idol.

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.

Recently, McGraw made headlines as being one of the few mainstream country artists to voice support for gun control. Another 10-15 minutes later, Faith and the band came out altogether and said Tim was very dehydrated.

But on Friday Lionel Richie revealed that the rebooted series might also harbor some prickly interactions between the judges. "I couldn't get you off my mind", Richie said, telling Bultongez that he was changing his vote. It will be particularly interesting to see how "Idol" fares Monday night, when it goes head-to-head with "The Voice".

"The lovely part about this is the judging". I don't love her voice, but I thought the song was brilliant. I remind myself and I'm reminded and I'm inspired by all of their stories.

Speaking about her judging style, she explained: "It's very constructive criticism".

FremantleMedia CEO Cecile Frot-Coutaz told The Hollywood Reporter: "I've known Ryan now for nearly 16 years".

Only two years after the singing contest ended its run on Fox amid dwindling ratings (not to mention newcomer "The Voice" was much more interesting) and steep production costs, it's getting the chance to prove itself again in an ABC version debuting 8 p.m. EST Sunday.

The victor of this round of American Idol could be a hit or miss. "I've had the opportunity to do some TV stuff through the years and turned it down, because I always focused on touring in my little kind of country-music world that I just kind of figured out". I like this kid. When they start singing and they are moving me emotionally, I get wrapped up in the moment. "I get wrapped up in the pageantry and the dreams coming true".
