American Idol will begin its 15th - and final - season this January 2016 on FOX. A season-long celebratory event, American Idol XV will feature host Ryan Seacrest and judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr., as they search for the final Idol superstar and pay tribute to the past 14 seasons of amazingly talented contestants and the millions of fans who tweeted, texted and championed their Idols.
The series premiere of a reboot of the reality series in which aspiring pop stars compete for a record deal. First up: judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie set out to discover a new crop of inspiring talent with a touch of Disney magic.
In episode two of auditions, Idol hopefuls, including a shoe salesman from Washington D.C., a construction worker from Southern California and a student from Louisiana, sing their hearts out for the judges to see if they have what it takes to earn a ticket to Hollywood.
