Fox Announces All ‘American Idol’ Judges Are Returning For Season 11
On the last season of American Idol, viewers fell in love with the diverse and entertaining panel of judges. With extremely different backgrounds, these judges offered valuable advice about singing, performing, and style that helped shape these new talents into seasoned singers. One judge that audiences seemed especially fond of was Jennifer Lopez. She became American Idol’s sweetheart, but would she return to the wildly successful, Emmy nominated ‘Idol?’ Apparently, yes!
The past few seasons of ‘Idol’ have been a little rocky for the judges, this after the departure of Paula Abdul , Kara Dioguardi, and Simon Cowell, then the addition and subsequent departure of Ellen Degeneres from the judging panel. The show executives have been looking for a cohesive group of judges to star in the show and it looks like they just might have found it.
Pop singer Jennifer Lopez, rock legend Steven Tyler, music producer Randy Jackson, and host Ryan Seacrest will be returning to this upcoming season of ‘Idol’ to sit through another round of long auditions and entertaining live performances.
American Idol, television’s No. 1 show, continues its search for the best undiscovered talent in the country with auditions starting in Houston, TX, on Friday, Aug. 26. For more audition information, visit www.americanidol.com.
