How Will 'American Idol' Reboot Differ From The Original Fox Show?

ABC Eric Liebowitz American Idol judges Lionel Richie Katy Perry and Luke Bryan with host Ryan Seacrest
All four members of the "Idol" team, including returning host Ryan Seacrest, came together to discuss the revival during a TCA panel Monday, and weighed in an all the changes, like no longer exploiting awful, fame-hungry singers for your entertainment. "They're a competitive bunch".
In a newHollywood Reporter story, showrunner Trish Kinane said that the advent of bad auditions through the show's early rounds - and subsequent scathing remarks from the judges - will be a distraction from the point of the competition.
ABC clearly has invested a lot in American Idol 15 beyond just giving it a Monday show. "I don't fit the pop star image that maybe people expect all the time, but I am a pop star and this is the image that I, you know, exude, and that's why this show really does compliment my desires for this industry".
"It doesn't feel comfortable to put borderline unstable people up on stage and laugh at them", she said.
Despite having to regrow its audience, it seems ABC is confident in its "American Idol" season 16 cast, which also features longtime host Ryan Seacrest. Yes, anyone can upload a video to YouTube or Instagram, but that's not enough to get noticed anymore.
The biggest change might be on the judges' panel: Seacrest lavished praise on the new judges, who he says came in looking "to collaborate, to take this seriously and to give the franchise what it deserves". People just want me to be authentic and that's all I want to be, too.
Hung explained that he feels the poor auditions are what set Idol apart from other singing competition shows like The Voice.
Katy is passionate about finding a star from the program: "Literally, we are wasting our time if we do not find a star. It's a crowded space and I take it really seriously, sometimes to my detriment". There are going to be huge expectations for this show to succeed and we wonder if those expectations are going to expand out now with the news that Dancing with the Stars is being held back specifically because of this show. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the new season of the iconic reality singing contest will not start off by showing bad auditions from contestants who are wholly unqualified for the show.
