Katy Perry Proves She Is Part Frog On 'American Idol'

Katy Perry Proves She Is Part Frog On 'American Idol'

After 16 seasons, fans may think American Idol has lost the ability to surprise, but their latest hopeful is an unexpected one: Kelly Ripa.

Helping to determine who America will ultimately vote for to become the next singing sensation are music industry forces and superstar judges, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Which is fine. But there are certain moments that lean into that good ol" "merican impulse a little too much. The judges never tell people they suck. They will come back to Hollywood and then they'll have to step up. "You grow up watching the show and you feel, oh man that would be so cool if I could be on that show". You have different contestants. To those who might think that may I remind you about brutal this show can be.

As Glaze went in for a sweet kiss on the cheek, Perry turned her head last second and smooched him right on the lips, causing the 19-year-old to fall to the ground. You have to, like, light yourself on fire on Instagram while singing.

Frot-Coutaz adds that Idol on ABC is not more costly than other broad competition shows, and sources say it's not setting ABC back any more than a typical hourlong drama (those come in between $3.5 million and $4.5 million these days).

Also, be sure to like CarterMatt on Facebook right now in the event you want to get some other insight when it comes to the series. "They need, like, a real legit American Idol". For all their success, charisma and talent, Richie, Perry and Bryan do not remotely convey that degree of authority in the inaugural episode.

But on Friday Lionel Richie revealed that the rebooted series might also harbor some prickly interactions between the judges. "This is not a business of, 'It's Cute, And I Love To Sing, '" he tells one young contestant.

"The attractive part about this is the judging". We're artists, and we know exactly how to critique talent. I hated them. Time enough for things to get mean when the kids get to Hollywood.

I know about your story, and I respect your story, and I think it's attractive and inspiring.

West Philadelphia's Dennis Lorenzo performs on Sunday's premiere of "American Idol" on ABC.

"We really encourage them". It's a reference that Luke Bryan says he doesn't understand, but the contestant knows, and is emotionally affected by it. "I just felt like it was going to be a blast to be a part of", he reflects. I've had the opportunity to do some TV stuff through the years and turned it down because I always focused on touring. But executives at ABC and Fremantle seem irked (and perhaps rightly) by the persistent questions about Idol's financial viability. "I'm in there on the emotional ride with these kids".
