All three amazing judges from last year, Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Ritchie are set to return this year as well. Ryan Seacrest is ready to take on another season hosting. Bobby Bones is taking on the role of in-house mentor to the contestants this season. The long-running singing competition recently finished it’s 24 cities, nationwide search, for the next American Idol.

Personally, I’m excited for another season of American Idol. I thoroughly enjoyed the judges from last season and am glad they came back for another. Are you ready for another season?
