As passionate fans of these shows, we provide news, analysis and fan engagement on America’s Got Talent, Britain’s Got Talent, The Voice, The X Factor, American Idol, The Four and its contestants.

    AMERICAN IDOL, the iconic series that revolutionized the television landscape by pioneering the music competition genre, returned to the airwaves in March 2019 for its second season at its new home on ABC. The nationwide search for the next superstar kicked off in August 2018, as the Idol Bus traveled from Portland, Oregon, to Orlando, Florida, in its pursuit for talent, covering 23 cities across the country. Auditioning was made easier than ever as hopefuls also had the opportunity to submit audition videos online, as well as via select social media platforms using an official tag, #TheNextIdol, cultivating over 300,000 posts. Also, for the first time in “American Idol” history, hopefuls had the opportunity to audition through a livestream platform. Helping to determine who America will ultimately vote for to become the next singing sensation, are music industry forces and superstar judges, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Emmy® Award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest will return as host of the beloved series.

            I am done with all this back and forth. You've wasted enough of my time in my life with your grotesque ignorance. When your day of judgement comes I pray God shows Mercy because the devil has had his hands on you for a long time. Have a good rest of your life Bill.

            @Angel Bookman that is a complete lie. This is what I was referring to about this whole scam. The only thing I said about those ridiculous corn rows was "Wait until your Aunt saw them".
            I stayed outside while your Aunt ranted and raved about how stupid you looked and here is a quote " Your not a bigger now take those things out.".
            I could hear that from outside the house. I then heard you running upstairs bawling your head off.
            You would bring trash to our house who would call you all sorts of vile racist terms and when I called them on it you were too stupid to understand a slur is a slur regardless of race orgin.
            My best friends and business partners have for the most part been black. I have been proposed to by at least two women of color. We "adopted" a black child as a grandchild so once again your lies have bit you in your ass.
            You left because you could no longer associate with the lowlifes you were inexplicably drawn to and insisted you would finish school in Az.

              I have replayed this performance multiple times and am blown away, again and again. Then there's Wade's original works on his YT channels, and it's the same story . . . I just can't get enough WADE COTA.

                    Months later... I still cry, rejoice and laugh out loud, whenever I listen to this performance. I've never been so captivated by a performance in my life. All his vulnerabilities, all his dreams come cascading out and it is so electrifying because every last person that watches this can identify with some component of his journey.
                    Producers...don't waste this...

                                This was my favorite performance of his. I hate "theme weeks" because artists need to be themselves, not Disney or an artist from 40 years ago. This is where he shined. You can see it in his face. More please!

Its extremely moving and emotional. Watch Kodaline do this song at Glastonbury from 2014. it will blow you away.
