The American Idol Reboot is Two Weeks Away: Will It Succeed?



The reboot of American Idol will debut in two weeks with new judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie. Will it have a chance to succeed? Or will it flop as hard as Katy's last album?

The last AI ran for 15 seasons.

Why it could succeed:

*The original was wildly successful and beloved

*Other singing shows like The Voice, America's Got Talent and The X Factor took off, but have lost momentum

*Lost of music genres are kind of meh right now and could use a new star

*New judges could be a hit

*Will have new theme song, new set, new feel


Why it could flop:

*The original was wildly successful and beloved

*The new one will not include bad auditions, which were a key part of the first AI

*Singing shows have become predictable

*Only a few stars ever took off. Most winners were flops.

*Paula, Simon, and Randy are iconique and it will be hard to capture their dynamic

*Katy Perry, judging someone else's singing talent? REALLY??
