    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.

                  Everyone keeps missing the singer he should be singing with his voice and that is a Chris Rea song . He wants to hit the final that is what he needs to sing .

                              I still say BB screwed Wade with his shitty-ass song picks. Wade has a special sound to his voice he's not a run of the mill singer like the other's they are boringly rehashed vocalist's. Wade is a natural. Dummies be like, so done with highschool musical finalists and this lame show! What a waste of space. I'll just be waiting to see Wade in concert soon...the others? I wouldn't pay a dime to see any of them. Especially that Kelly Clarkson wannabe.

                                    That Bobby Bones character messed up. He should've had him do either a Bob Seger or Meatloaf song instead of this one and Elton John's. Nothing like sabotaging the poor guy.

                                      Wade should said sorry this song is not for me

                                    I think Wade should focus on his health, he has issues he’s ignored.

                                        Can’t believe he isn’t in the final. Love his voice.

                                                                  • Ekaterini

                                                                        • Jo C

Wade was the only reason I watched Idol. Guess I won’t be watching the finale and will just wait for a Cota concert or music of his to purchase.

                                                                                          I think the top 3 "should" be Wade, Laci and Alejandro. They are the 3 true artists of the remaining five. The other two have great voices but lack the ability to inhabit their songs. Laine is too sleepy (maybe it is his shyness) a performer, not emotionally committed enough. Madison mistakes volume and athletic runs for emotional commitment and her movement during Your song was awkward and calculated. These are just my personal preferences but my top 3 affect my heart and soul EVERY time out.

                                                                                          • Vasundhara Vasumatary

But I beg to differ about Laine... He has such a great voice for radio and studio..
