American Idol

The iconic singing competition is back, and the judges you know and love are ready to find this season's superstar. Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Ryan Seacrest are coming together virtually for the fourth season, after claiming the number one position for Sunday night's broadcast series.

After becoming the first reality competition series to air remotely, American Idol is now holding auditions online. "Idol Across America" is currently taking place across all 50 states, giving singers a shot, no matter where they reside. To stay true to the American Idol process, the hopeful talent audition face-to-face to producers, this way they are able to provide real time feedback on whether or not they are continuing their Idol journey.

In a press release, president of ABC Entertainment Karey Burke shared her excitement on the new season, especially during these unprecedented times:

"'American Idol' has always been able to bring people together, entertain and inspire – and I am so proud of how this show continued to deliver joy and laughter into people's homes during a time when we needed it the most.There is no one who we feel more confident about leading us into a new season of high notes than Luke, Katy, Lionel and the incomparable Ryan Seacrest."

The return of the judges and Seacrest is a great way to start off the new season. Now, more than ever, "Idol" fans are in need of some quality entertainment, and according to Eli Holzman, CEO of 19 Entertainment's parent company Industrial Media, she feels the same way:

"At times like these, it is more important than ever to give families wholesome entertainment, packed full of hope, talent and inspiration – where dreams come true. And that is what 'American Idol' is all about."
