“American Idol” Revival Official Trailer Out: See Katy Perry, Luke Bryan & Lionel Richie In Action!
The official trailer for the ABC revival season of “American Idol” is finally out.
It’s almost 2 minutes of exclusive footage of actual auditions of the new season and the new judges, Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan, interacting with each other and with the potential contestants.
“Let the Journey Begin” is the title of the YouTube video below. The new season of “American Idol” premieres on March 11th on ABC.
So there’ll be the usual stuff in this season. Crying, good singers, bad singers, grandchildren making their grandparents proud, auditionees kissing the judges on the lips, you know, the usual stuff.
What I was not prepared to witness was Katy Perry kind of being overshadowed by Luke Bryan in this trailer, though. I thought Katy was going to be the star judge of this season, and that there would be a lot of her speaking and showing bright personality in this trailer but I didn’t get to see a lot of that. Instead, I saw Luke Bryan taking almost all of the spotlight and kind of demonstrating he may be the coolest judge this season and not the "Hey Hey Hey" singer. Uh-oh.
