American Idol Season 12 Premiere Recap 01/16/13
Tonight is the night we have been waiting for, American Idol is coming back! I am so excited, it is my favorite music reality show. Tonight will begin the two part season premiere of American Idol where tens of thousands of hopefuls from across the nation audition for a shot at stardom. The judges will be traveling across the country in search of the next American Idol. This season the audition cities will be: Baton Rouge, LA – Charlotte, NC – Chicago, IL – Los Angeles, CA – Newark, NJ – Oklahoma City, OK – San Antonio, TX.
This season we have new judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban. Randy Jackson is returning to the judges desk and Ryan Seacrest will be hosting.
The judges have their say after every performance, but it’s the viewing public that determines who will advance to become a finalist and who will go home. Telephone, text message and online voting begin immediately after each live performance show, and the results are announced during the following night’s live broadcast.
