How to watch American Idol Season 16 premiere live online

Luke Bryan Katy Perry and Lionel Richie

Not so with the new "American Idol". He will be the something old, but there are three new judges. Let us know by grading them in our poll. They see the judges. Do you want someone who can just play...bars...? And then you've got O.J. Simpson.

The weirdest thing about neo-Idol, if you're in macro frame of mind, is how many contestants have already experimented in elaborate self-branding.

"I love Luke! He's like a big brother to me", she says. You'd hope someone with Richie's singing/songwriting chops would have more advice in terms of pure craftsmanship, but in the premiere, he falls back a little too often on pop-machine platitudes, "This is an identity business". "This launching pad gives such an advantage to all those people that need that spotlight".

In the days leading up to the premiere of ABC's "American Idol" relaunch, the network issued a teaser clip that featured judge Katy Perry and a young contestant bonding over the slang term "wig" (as in, this event made my wig fly off).

So it's with mild annoyance that I report that Sunday's two-hour premiere is more fun than I expected, and not just because it's bookended by the auditions of Langhorne's Catie Turner and West Philadelphia's Dennis Lorenzo.

The rebooted reality singing competition that introduced us to Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and, um, William Hung, in many ways felt oh so familiar.

Meanwhile, Katy previously claimed that the revived show represents a chance for the contestants to live out the "American Dream".

The judges are #Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan.

Lionel Richie said his answer is very simple, it's the teaching aspect to share his vast experience. Partly due to the rotating judges. I remind myself and I'm reminded and I'm inspired by all of their stories.

"We are looking for something unusual - I am, in particular", Katy tells ABC Radio.

Seriously, though... do y'all think it's going to be too sugary-sweet on American Idol this year?!

"We really encourage them. We're here to really find a star and, if someone isn't a star, delicately help repurpose them on the path that's going to be good for them".

"I sang parts of Techno Cumbia in Spanish and Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato". I've had the opportunity to do some TV stuff through the years and turned it down because I always focused on touring.

But in its final years, as viewers drifted away to others shows such as former "Idol" judge Simon Cowell's "The X Factor" or NBC's "The Voice", the "Idol" franchise looked done. "I'm in there on the emotional ride with these kids". "I used to listen to Disney songs from the cartoons and I started singing them". It was never a moment's thought for me, because I get inspired (by it).
