Billboard on the Return of “American Idol”

Vote for Danny Gokey on IdolAre you excited for the relaunch of “American Idol” in 2018?

Do yo remember voting for Danny Gokey on “American Idol” or sitting on pins and needles to hear if he was “safe” for another week?  Some of us owe (or blame?) “American Idol” for helping us find some amazing artists.  Maybe even our FAVORITE artist. (And in my case, sucking up an incredible amount of time.  But it is all good; I have some awesome friends from it, too!)

In a recent article by Fred Bronson for Billboard, he talks about what he would like to see in the reboot of the iconic show.  And we are pleased that out of the 150 artists that made the top 10 through those fifteen seasons, he has this to say:

THE CONTESTANTS: We’ve always believed that Idol rises and falls on the shoulders of the contestants. The series found a lot of amazing talent over 15 years………. Give us a talent roster as great as Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken and Kimberley Locke or Carrie Underwood, Bo Bice and Vonzell Solomon or David Cook, David Archuleta and Syesha Mercado or Kris Allen, Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey, and we’ll be happy.
