That’s a wrap on the first day of production for the ABC reboot of the classic American singing competition show American Idol. New judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie shot the first day of judge auditions along with host Ryan Seacrest. Ryan put a little backstage glimpse at the production and a look at the coveted golden ticket that sends contestants to the live show.
One of the most anticipated shows in recent memory is the return of American Idol, which should premiere at the beginning of next year. We’ve all followed the drama as the show scrambled to find judges to sit alongside Katy Perry. She got a reported 25 million bucks for the gig. Last week they added country star Luke Bryan and then over the weekend, (just in the nick of time), brought on soul legend Lionel Richie. That was lucky. They would have looked really bad if they didn’t have all the judge’s in place.
I look forward to seeing Lionel, Katy, and Luke fighting over the singers. At least, I hope they fight. What would American Idol have been without Paula vs. Simon or The Voice without Blake and Adam constantly bickering?
