Catie Turner, 18, Says Katy Perry "Most Feisty" on American Idol

Revamped 'American Idol' reaches more than 10 million

The new American Idol premieres Sunday on ABC and you'll be hearing some Chicago area voices singing out to prove they're ready for stardom. After 15 seasons on Fox, and less than two years off-air, the once-popular television series back-this time on ABC. Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Georgia's own Luke Bryan are taking over and breathing new life into the 16-year-old franchise.

The revival of American Idol will premiere on Sunday, March 11, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

According to the network, no North Carolina "Idol" hopefuls are featured in the first two episodes, but contestants may turn up in later episodes.

During an October interview on Good Morning America, the judges opened up about working on the American Idol reboot, and discussed what they were planning to look for on their journey to find undiscovered talent.

She explained to People: "We really encourage them".

Venezuelan refugee Michelle Sussett wants to be an American Idol! "I don't really know how to define it, so I'm just going to leave it at that".

The only returnee to the new "Idol" is host Ryan Seacrest, who in recent weeks has faced allegations of sexual misconduct by a stylist at E! where he also long has worked. Plus with Ryan Seacrest still in the hosting seat, what could be better? Just don't forget to cancel your trial if you don't want to get charged $20. Cute little viral "moments" may inspire short-term chatter, but compelling, magical stories are what make shows like this matter. "We're really real with them".

U.S. may tie North Atlantic Treaty Organisation contributions to tariff exemptions
The tariffs would "seriously impact the normal order of global trade", the Ministry of Commerce said. It was the most explicit threat yet from the country in the escalating trade row.

"One day I was at college, and the next day I was on a plane to LA", he says.

But that doesn't fit with Seacrest's American Idol image, and, as Sonia Saraiya writes in a must-read column about the immunity he's been given, "it is convenient for many wealthy and powerful entities in the industry to believe him - and correspondingly inconvenient to believe her".

Perry has dubbed the new judging crew the 'dream team, ' but will any of them be harsh enough to carry on Simon Cowell's tradition of brutal criticism?

Fun fact: Three people involved in "The One" - judge Kara DioGuardi and singers Syesha Mercado and Jackie Mendez - wound up on later seasons of "American Idol".

"I planned on being the toughest guy in the world, but then we had this person come on and tell us that he was homeless", Richie said. She kindly tells contestants that other people are quite simply out-singing them or that they need to continue to work on their skills or that their voice is better suited for a different medium.

"As a judge, you know, we're gonna make some mistakes here", Luke points out. Fans of the show are anxious to see how the new judges will compare to the various other celebrities who judged previous episodes.
