North Texans are no strangers to seeing hometown folks on a national stage, specifically the one on "American Idol", which has jumpstarted the careers of several locals, including the show's first victor, Kelly Clarkson, who hails from Burleson.
Seacrest emphasized that the show is "America's gold standard of music competitions". But Idol had, like much of broadcast television, hemorrhaged viewers by the end of its 15-year run.
For starters, the gimmick has been diluted by the numerous follow-up seasons (this will be the sixteenth "Idol") and various competitive shows.
But insofar as all three judges have an abundance of success, charisma and stature, they can definitely make improvements in the weeks ahead. But the show, at its core, works in format and works in premise.
"We are looking for something unusual - I am, in particular", Perry told ABC News. Many of us have already seen some of it; the exuberant Davis' mutual-admiration moment with Perry has been featured in a show commercial. (Those chosen) come back to Hollywood and then, they have to step up. And I think she liked it.

The average hourly wage for private sector workers was $26.75 last month, up 68 cents from February 2017 and 4 cents from January. The figure for February was also significantly higher than the roughly 200,000 new jobs that most economists had expected.

The first celebrity signed for the new "Idol", Perry was a guest judge on the earlier version and has scored a major payday - reportedly, $25 million - for joining the program full time. They need it badly.
However, her American Idol journey won't be revealed until the episode premieres on March 19.

Trump's meeting with video game industry was not exactly productive
The big news yesterday about North Korea will no doubt be the major topic of conversation. Vickey Hartzler said this meeting is the "first of many " with industry leaders.
Lionel Richie: "I love the quality of your voice". The 20-year-old's interest in music didn't blossom until high school. "I got back home, and I was like, 'Did I really just do that?"
Richie added, "The lovely part is I love the judging".
Well, we don't know yet!
I know about your story, and I respect your story, and I think it's lovely and inspiring.
Perhaps sensing some general need for respite - from unpleasantness, cruelty, bullies - ABC resurrects an American Idol that's cozily familiar, reassuring even, with the franchise's recognizable markers intact and the spikier inclinations of previous incarnations left behind.

Head coach Steve Dudley spoke about his freshman runner Marco Arop, who is now 10th in the nation with a 1:47.62 time in the 800m. Holloway was also part of the Gators 4×400 relay team alongside Kunie Fasasi, Chantz Sawyers and Benjamin Lobo Vedel.
But of course, Bryan won't lose his Southern roots even if this TV role takes over a lot of his schedule because he always sticks to what keeps him a country man.
