After 12 seasons of American Idol, I'm still excited on who to root for because it is the only TV singing competition show to produce numerous hit and award-winning recording artists. Did you know that combined Idol finalists have released more than 200 albums, hit No.1 on the Billboard charts over 400 times, and have garnered more than 250 million iTunes downloads? Lucky for us fans, this January 16 (Thursday), LIVE via satellite at 6pm, with a primetime telecast at 8pm and January 17 (Friday), LIVE via satellite at 6pm with a primetime telecast at 9pm, you would see the Idol hopefuls with the newest set of judges. Again hosted by Ryan Seacrest and featuring the judges Harry Connick, Jr., Keith Urban, and Jennifer Lopez, along with in-house mentor Randy Jackson, the series continues its search across America to find the next singing superstar.
