Watch American Idol season 16 premiere online

Luke Bryan Katy Perry and Lionel Richie

In the two-hour premiere, it's business as usual as the series travels from NY to Nashville to Los Angeles searching for the next American idol. In 2006, the editor and talk show host Judith Regan conducted an interview with O.J. Simpson in which he gave a hypothetical account of how he might have been involved in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

Seacrest emphasized that the show is "America's gold standard of music competitions".

Say goodbye to Simon Cowell-the celebrity judges this time around are Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan.

They also come up short in terms of "selling the dream" when someone gets pushed through to Hollywood. "What's your style? You got a style?" said Richie. "To change the show drastically in terms of format, I think, would be a mistake".

In case you've been living on a remote island with forgotten "Idol" contests of days past, here's what you should know about the show's return.

But, with so many other reality competitions on the air, it is hard to see what sets "American Idol" apart.

Sussett applied for American Idol auditions in 2015, but that didn't go anywhere.

But on Friday Lionel Richie revealed that the rebooted series might also harbor some prickly interactions between the judges. "We're running a business here, so we certainly are always looking for things to be profitable", says Dungey.

"The handsome part about this is the judging".

Well, we don't know yet! I remind myself and I'm reminded and I'm inspired by all of their stories. "It is really about the contestant and we're just here to support them and to elevate them", said Perry. Do you want someone who can just play... bars? ABC has two very successful and long-running reality franchises in "Dancing With the Stars" and "The Bachelor/ette", but it has been absolutely bad at launching and sustaining music-based competitions.

Luke Bryan reported it's fun for him. Everybody hates me just because I eat worms. I was in their shoes ten years ago.

"I sang an original song that I wrote called 'Yard Sale.' It was nerve-wracking singing my own song in front of incredible singers and songwriters".

Watch the clip below to find out how the other two judges reacted. "I'm in there on the emotional ride with these kids".
