The American Idol Revival Will Not “Exploit” Bad Auditions

When American Idol first started, people were enamored by the talent of the first winner Kelly Clarkson, but what really put the show on the map were the bad auditions and harsh criticisms. Original cast member Simon Cowell became a household name as a judge thanks to his comments about the “bad” performances.

Even though American Idol just had its series finale in 2016, there is a revival on the way which no one asked for. The show is on a different network and instead of judges that were on the previous seasons, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan are up for the task. Ryan Seacrest is back to host and the format of the show seems relatively the same, but this time there will be no bad auditions.
