The three new judges are pop star Katy Perry, 1980s icon Lionel Richie and country star Luke Bryan.

Perry believes in the platform so much that she gushed, "Literally, we are wasting our time if we do not find a star".

During his audition, Glaze admitted to Perry and her fellow judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie that he had never kissed anyone before.

ABC is betting that "American Idol" will move the ratings dial, especially since it already has one new hit, "The Good Doctor", this season. Read on below for the TV schedule of the show's episodes, live stream info, and more show details.

Elizabeth Hurley flies to London after nephew brutally stabbed
The Estee Lauder ambassador has previously shared Mr Hurley's modelling photos, tweeting: "Here's my handsome nephew". And Elizabeth left the US on Friday (09Mar18) to be with her family after the "appalling" incident.

From the introduction of the new judges to the first audition, by uber-hyper and uber-talented 17-year-old singer-songwriter Catie Turner, the accent unquestionably is on the positive. The ABC iteration of "Idol" continues the tradition of heartwarming video packages and interviews, thus making it easy to root for the different contestants.

In the first audition episode, the show will head to New York, Los Angeles and Nashville where aspiring singers will audition for a chance to see if they have what it takes to earn the coveted golden ticket to Hollywood.

Now, like a high-priced free agent touted as the savior of a struggling sports franchise, "Idol" will attempt to reverse 18 years of low-rated and ill-fated history for ABC with regard to music shows. It'll be a fast-paced season so buckle up and get ready for the fun. Suffice it to say that, in order for absence to make the heart grow fonder, you have to be gone for more than 23 months.

With all of the success of NBC's "The Voice" overshadowing it's older, trailblazing singing-competition show, the student became the master. But this brings us to yet another doubt hanging over the show's return. And it will do so with an entirely new and untested judging panel and a host at the center of allegations of sexual harassment from a former stylist at NBCUniversal's E! But the stain remains: Some stars avoided him on the red carpet before the Oscars and some suspicions remain.

Arlene Foster: EU Brexit text not 'faithful' to December deal
Placing a border down the Irish Sea would not just be politically unacceptable but would be economically catastrophic. Sorry, the European Union does not have the right to go into the Belfast Agreement in that fashion.

But that doesn't fit with Seacrest's American Idol image, and, as Sonia Saraiya writes in a must-read column about the immunity he's been given, "it is convenient for many wealthy and powerful entities in the industry to believe him - and correspondingly inconvenient to believe her".

Noah Davis of Royal, Arkansas meets the judges before his audition on "American Idol" on Sunday, March 11, 2018. In one sense, ABC and Seacrest are lucky.

Ears will be tuned to the quality of the contestants. But by all indications, they're aware that the last few seasons of "American Idol" didn't exactly produce memorable names.

The groundbreaking reality TV singing competition debuted in 2002 and had enjoyed a fantastic run for a decade, ruling as the biggest shows on television.

Bears apply the transition tag to cornerback Kyle Fuller
