Kinder 'American Idol' debuts with a chorus of hope and doubt

Monday, 12 Mar, 2018

Producers of the revamped show said they wanted judges with credibility and the result was a new three-person panel consisting of Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. It's a kinder, gentler show that, at least in the first two-hour episode, jettisons Simon Cowell-style cutting commentary and more fully embraces positivity and uplift. Of course it will ultimate hang on whether the show found any good singers and any great characters, people you want to listen to sing and watch on TV. In 2006, the editor and talk show host Judith Regan conducted an interview with O.J. Simpson in which he gave a hypothetical account of how he might have been involved in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

By giving fans instant access to millions of songs, streaming services further dampen the impact of music competition series.

The aforementioned criticism about talent pools notwithstanding, a few of the auditions are truly excellent from a vocal standpoint.

If ABC has set lower expectations, then those can nearly certainly be met - not necessarily aspiring to become the music competition version of "America's Funniest Home Videos", but a franchise that can match or marginally improve upon those waning days on Fox.

I know about your story, and I respect your story, and I think it's handsome and inspiring. The show aired its finale on April 7, 2016, so ABC is betting that an appetite for a reboot has developed in less than two years. "It felt like "Idol" wasn't getting the attention it needed to thrive, and that's what we'll do here". "They're not pushovers, there is no one mean judge".

The revamped American Idol will premiere on Sunday, March 11.
