TIP Exclusive: American Idol Season 20 Renewal

We are pleased to announce that, despite the ratings being at an all-time low, ABC is renewing American Idol for its landmark twentieth season.

Of course, it will also be American Idol's fifth season on ABC, which is a smaller but still significant milestone in itself, as there were many who doubted that the revival would last more than a few seasons.

However, for the first time during the ABC era, top network executives and producers are seriously considering changes to the judging panel, especially with global superstar Ariana Grande recently being announced as a coach for its rival, The Voice, on NBC.

Additionally, for those wondering, it is still unknown whether or not withdrawn AI19 semi-finalist Wyatt Pike would be allowed to return next season (if he even wanted to).

American Idol Season 20 will premiere during the first quarter of 2022, with its finale mere weeks before the 20-year anniversary of the inaugural season's premiere in June 2002.

American Idol Season 19: AI18 Top 20 Second Chance Twist

April 2nd Confirmation: This is not an April Fool's Day joke.

For those who forgot or didn't know, the most recent episode was suppose to end with "a surprise twist that no one saw coming," according to its official synopsis, but it didn't happen. Well, the announcement of said twist was simply delayed. It's not just any twist, either. In our opinion, it's the largest twist in American Idol history, by far.
  • The major twist is that 10 contestants from the AI18 Top 20 will be returning for a second chance, effectively making a Top 34.
  • To clarify, the Second Chance contestants are in addition to the 2 wild cards, which will be selected by the judges.
  • Second Chance contestants will in fact be voted on by the public.
  • Second Chance Performances will air Monday, April 19th, with the voting results serving as the cliffhanger for the 13-day hiatus.
  • Only a "few" of the 10 Second Chance contestants will ultimately compete with the new contestants.
  • The "few" winners of Second Chance will be officially revealed and merge with the remaining newbie finalists on Sunday, May 2nd.
