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.

  1. YES!! This proves you can win with an amazing, crystal clear voice with no insanely high, loud notes.

  2. Still after watching soo mamy originals. This original is soo amazing. I was doing an experiment on many friends who havent heard this song and most of them shed a tear while listening to this song. Says a lot. Amazing amazing job Maddie poppe 🙂

  3. "She reminds me of myself, we write in a similar style"
    -Katy Perry about every creative contestant that has 0 similarity to her lol

  4. Where the hell did she disappear to? I guess the record company got their fangs in her. Bummer

  5. Always have been singers with original songs. American Idol just let them show their music since last year.

  6. When I was watching I thought "Wow… she looks like Katy in the beginning, when she still used Hudson in the last name" … and then… She say the same thing! haha "She reminds me of myself."😂 So yes… she looks like katy in the early 2001's! But in the video, it's not just about the music soundslike, but the haircut and clothes.. looks so much like!

  7. I really hope she becomes a singer bc her voice is absolutely amazing and unique

  8. its funny. i thought it was like a katy perry song too and then she said she reminds her of herself

  9. At 1:49 "you didn't mind if your hair was a mess". He really didn't mind – the guy behind lol. . .

  10. First time watching this & it made me tear up. Thought I was being to emotional till Katy started tearing up too.
