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.

            This needs to be recorded in a studio and added in Django Unchained during the mansion massacre scene.

              His voice/vibe he gives off is too dark and weird for me. I think that's why he didn't win. His song choices are also odd

                          Wade you are fabulous. You are an artist and very different and distinct and will probably have an alternative career vs. most of the others will have no career. Most of them are forgettable and generic.

                              He's faking the voice. It's not natural. He puts it on like an Actor. That's not cool.

                                        I've never had any of the people on AI affect me as much as Wade does. They have had some amazing talent over the years but I think Wade is the best they have ever had! He's in a class all by himself! He has the voice of ancient legend come back to life! It's something primal and powerful and gives me chills and makes me tear up! Just amazing.

                                                  Man o man have I got a list of songs his voice is perfect for, let’s start a list:
                                                  “Tunnel of Love”, “Hey, Hey Johnny”, the Cash Brothers “Nebraska” I could go on and on

                                                    Could anyone tell me, what the coach said to Wade? I’m sorry, I’m from Indonesia, I love her wise words, but dunno how to spell. Thanks for your help ❤️

                                                      She basically told him to not fear failing. It kind of takes the pressure off mentally.

                                                    “WHY NOT WADE” he’s so humble and DAMN that VOICE! 🤩🤩🤩

                                                      Ok, please don't hate on me but is this a Leonard Cohen song?
                                                      Whoever the original artist is, Wade made this awesome and I really hope he wins. He's humble, talented, more original than everyone else and has a fantastic presence that reaches beyond the audience in front of him.
                                                      However, he's already a winner in many respects.
                                                      I love this entertainer!
