ABC’s Version of American Idol Will No Longer Feature “Bad” Auditions - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you looking forward to all the bad, yet hilarious auditions when the reboot of American Idol premiers? Too bad, because the showrunner is trashing them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s right, unfortunately, the new ABC version of the most iconic singing talent show will no longer feature bad auditions. The show debuts on March 11 and singers will be critiqued by new judges which include #KatyPerry, #LukeBryan, and #LionelRichie. #RyanSeacrest will remain the host. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But showrunner, Trish Kinane said this week that “bad” auditions are no longer a part of the show. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “One of the key things about the show is it shouldn’t feel manipulated or fake because 15 years ago, nobody had ever seen it and it was funny,” Kinane said. “Viewers know now. They’ve all watched all these shows in 15 years, and it doesn’t feel comfortable to put borderline unstable people up and laugh at them.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most Americans found joy in the popular show because of the connection we developed with contestants - whether good or bad. We spent 15 years watching millions travel far and wide to shoot their shot at fame. #AmericanIdol became an American tradition to watch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even though some talent went home with nothing, American Idol was responsible for the successful careers of Fantasia, Carrie Underwood, and Kelly Clarkson. While we may still enjoy the show, our tears of joy will no longer be balanced by the cries of laughter we gained from the planned, mediocre and just all-out bad auditions in the beginning of the season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With that being said, will you all still watch?
