Not only is ‘American Idol’ back but so are in-person auditions!
Luke Bryan returned for his 4th season as a judge and was so happy things were somewhat back to normal.
“We’re back in front of the kids for live auditions, and being in the room with an extremely talented artist and singer is really, really powerful. You don’t want those moments virtually. I was so thankful that the show with a way to get us in front of the kids, and certainly, we followed all the COVID protocols, and the way we even did auditions, virtual auditions, made it easier for kids that may not have submitted their auditions. I feel like it helped us find new talent that we wouldn’t have found otherwise.”
American Idol airs on Sundays at 7 p.m. on ABC 17.
