In the ABC iteration - born because Fox wanted to take a break but "Idol" producer FremantleMedia thought it best to move on - there is a new panel of judges, a familiar goal and another reason to talk about Ryan Seacrest this week. "Her approval means everything to me", says Catie.

"Here's what's happening. We start out with 200 some odd people, let's be honest". "Those moments where...they come in very unassuming...then they start singing and magic starts happening". "To change the show drastically in terms of format, I think, would be a mistake". For now, Perry, Bryan, and Richie are the only judges scheduled to appear. Through CMG's 19 Entertainment, it co-produces "American Idol", the gold standard of music competition programs, returning to the air on ABC, and the enduring franchise, "So You Think You Can Dance". "I was in their shoes ten years ago". Prior to the original show going off the air, Perry was a guest judge on the show and was direct, to say the least, with the contestants.

The nationwide search for the next superstar kicked off in August, as the Idol Bus traveled from Portland, Oregon, to Orlando, Florida, in its pursuit for talent, covering 23 cities across the country.

"The handsome part about this is the judging".




"We wanted judges with credibility, who knew what they were talking about, were huge successes in their own right, who were articulate and who generally cared about the contestants", executive producer Trish Kinane told reporters in January. I remind myself and I'm reminded and I'm inspired by all of their stories.

For the judges, the new "American Idol" represents a chance to put their stamp on a job held by a succession of celebrity panelists. "I just felt like it was going to be a blast to be a part of", he reflects. Katy asks rhetorically. "I'm always looking for the biggest one".

"'American Idol' is a pop-culture staple that left the air too soon", Channing Dungey, ABC entertainment president, said in announcing the reboot last spring.
