The American Idol is a singing competition based reality show which began airing in June 2002. It was inspired by the British series Pop Idol and is now one of the most popular shows on American Television. It is governed by a panel of judges who critique the performances of the participants and the winner emerges as a result of the choice criterion based on the votes of audience. The voting takes place through internet, sms text, telephone lines.
The aim of the show is to recognize solo recording artists. The show has found great success throughout the years and is recognized as one of the most impactful shows which has produced a lot of stars.
Will There Be American Idol 2017?
Fox announced on May 11, 2015 that the American Idol season 15 is the final season in the series of American Idol. So meaning is clear that there won’t be any American Idol 2017. Also as they already branded 15th season as American Idol: The Farewell Season, so I don’t think they will be returning with another season.
It’s official American Idol is returning again on ABC in 2017.
Promising a “bigger, bolder and better-than-ever Idol,” Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks and President, Disney|ABC, mused, “American Idol on ABC… that has a nice ring to it. Idol is an entertainment icon, and now it will air where it belongs, in ABC’s lineup of addictive fan favorites alongside Dancing With The Stars and The Bachelor.”
Channing Dungey, President, ABC Entertainment, took a subtle jab at Fox for ending the show. “American Idol is a pop-culture staple that left the air too soon,” she said. “ABC is the right home to reignite the fan base. We are thrilled viewers will once again share in these inspiring stories of people realizing their dreams.”
