American Idol’s 18th Season will begin later this month. The hit show will return to ABC

Returning this season are music industry legends and all-star judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie. Emmy-winning producer Ryan Seacrest will return in his role as host and multimedia personality Bobby Bones will return to his role as in-house mentor.

Those auditioning for the coveted ticket to Hollywood include a subway performer from Harlem who gives one of the most emotional auditions in “Idol” history; a garbage collector with no experience who heads to the streets of Savannah, alongside host Ryan Seacrest, to warm up for his audition; and a hopeless romantic who encounters her own fairy tale twist during her audition as she sings from the heart.
