Katy Perry Used Her New American Idol Platform to Shade Sworn Enemy Taylor Swift

On Sunday night’s episode of ABC’s inexplicable reboot of the former Fox hit American Idol, Judge Luke Bryan asked a contestant who they “look up to as an artist.” The contestant, a friendly looking young fella with a beard and glasses, nervously offered a disclaimer to Judge Katy Perry before responding. “I’m sorry…

American Idol Is Back and Easy to Ignore

We can debate whether or not we need American Idol back so soon—it only went off the air two years ago, which means the gap between getting the boot and being rebooted is shorter than ever.

ABC Is Desperate for a Non-White Judge to Complete Its American Idol Panel ABC Is Desperate for a Non-White Judge to Complete Its American Idol Panel

American Idol’s ongoing issue with securing a judging panel for its dreaded return is perhaps one sign that the show is ill-fated from the start. Nonetheless, the producers need just one more expert to join Katy Perry and country singer Luke Bryan and it would be nice if it wasn’t another white person.

American Idol managed to land its second celebrity judge just a week ahead of the start of auditions, with Variety reporting that country star Luke Bryan will be joining Katy Perry for the series reboot on ABC.

Hey, has anyone else had a problem keeping their brain matter from oozing out of their ears and nose over the past few days as your body suffers a physical response to the demise of American democracy as we know it? Anyone?

Kelly Clarkson's Not Joining American Idol But She Is Joining The Voice Kelly Clarkson's Not Joining American Idol But She Is Joining The Voice

 Suck it, Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Clarkson doesn’t want it. Instead of joining the cast of the godawful and unnecessary American Idol reboot as was rumored yesterday, Miss Clarkson is betting on the right horse and joining The Voice as a judge for its 14th season.

Kelly Clarkson May Be Coming Home To American Idol Kelly Clarkson May Be Coming Home To American Idol

Though it has been only a little more than a year since American Idol celebrated its final season with all the fanfare it deserved, there is already a reboot in the works that could premiere as soon as March 2018. Though I am personally viewing this news with the same horror I’d feel about raising my grandma from the…

Hey, It's Me, American Idol...

That strange rash on your elbow that miraculously went away but then resurfaces. A baby on the train that stops crying for five seconds, then starts up again, LOUDER. A Black Eyed Peas reunion album. American Idol.

ABC Would Like to Bring American Idol Back From the Dead

TMZ reports Tuesday that the show is “the hottest property out there” (out where?) and…

The Thing I'll Miss Most About American Idol Is Jennifer Lopez's Facial Expressions

I am both an early and late adopter of American Idol. I watched it early on with the kids I babysat, embarrassing them as I imitated the contestants in front of their large floor-to-ceiling windows, in full few of their neighbors. Somehow this season, I happened upon it again, tuning in one quiet night home alone…
