season 20: Katy Perry, full judging panel coming back in 2022
During the Wednesday broadcast of Good Morning America, it was affirmed that Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan are for the most part going to be back on the reality-TV staple when it gets back to ABC in 2022. Note that this is likewise a very special season for American Idol — season 20! There aren’t a great deal of shows that hit this achievement and we trust that they spend some time appropriately celebrating it.
Bryan, Perry, and Richie have all been ready as judges since the show was revived at ABC and now, we comprehend for what reason they’d need to keep being a part of it. In addition to the fact that it is a gig that (obviously) pays well, however it gives them a major platform to advance their music. They additionally have great chemistry with one another and we’ve never felt like the judges are a major issue with this show. For American Idol, the greatest thing they need to continue to deal with is the actual process of making stars; it’s been so many years since there’s been a champion who proceeded to become some sort of massive star; there are a lot of them that faded into the background after only a few of years.
On the off chance that we needed to figure, we would say that American Idol will be back on ABC eventually following awards season one year from now — they will not have any desire to hazard the beginning of the season airing opposite some pretty heavy competition. It may not be the pop-culture-defining hit that it used to be years prior, yet it draws a reliable audience and produce a decent bit of social-media traffic.
