'American Idol' 2018: What Does The Season 16 Winner Get?

Kelly Ripa auditioned for "American Idol", and it was clear by Katy Perry's reaction that her success on television does not translate to music.

"'American Idol' and I have always been circling each other", she says, "and it just hasn't been the right timing".

The new "American Idol" season premieres on Sunday at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Now for the way to watch the American Idol Season 16 premiere live online. Explaining that he's been asked to do projects offering career advice, the victor of four Grammy Awards and an Oscar admits he considered turning "American Idol" down. So Disney/ABC, and NBC Universal's E!, and FremantleMedia are doing what Seacrest did in a column: declaring that women are courageous and should be heard when they tell their stories, but we should just completely ignore this woman while believing Seacrest's unsubstantiated claim that she tried to blackmail him. On occasion, the runner up lucks out and is given a recording contract as well, but they don't get the luxury of calling themselves an "American Idol".

"'American Idol' is a pop-culture staple that left the air too soon", Channing Dungey, ABC entertainment president, said in announcing the reboot last spring.

Katy Perry then chimed in and explained that one of the greatest advantages of the show is that the judges only have a limited influence.

The judges also may help the contestants set new goals, Perry said.

The days of William Hung are not over for American Idol.

"There's no dismissing and just sending off and saying, "You suck". Do you want someone who can just play...bars...? They are all musicians whose careers are in different genres.

Luke says he's also looking for a combination of things.

How can I watch the show? ABC is the new network that has ordered 19 episodes to air over 38 hours on Sunday and Monday nights.
