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Additionally, for those wondering, it is still unknown whether or not withdrawn AI19 semi-finalist Wyatt Pike would be allowed to return next season (if he even wanted to).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

    1. We need new judges! Luke absolutely 100% needs to go, and Katy can join him. They should keep Lionel unless they want to go completely fresh. I would love if they brought back Paula and Randy and then got another judge who was nasty like Simon.

    2. Ricky Gervais would be perfect then because he would be nasty like Simon Cowell.

  2. I want to see lionel gone no offense... Katy Perry carries this show, and I'm not a country fan but I like Luke too. Would love to see them put a R&B younger artist to replace Lionel Richie....Idek who tho I'd love to see someone like SZA or a female artist with a lot of talent replace him

    1. Seriously?😂 Lionel and Katy are the show’s hearts! Every critique and wise words he gives resonates with the contestants! You don’t seem to like him just because he’s a bit old and that’s insane! We want professionals not youngsters who barely know how to carry themselves!

    2. Yeah I agree with that. If anything, replace Luke Bryan with another country artist like Carrie Underwood, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, or Chris Stapleton.

  3. I like the judges personally it’s crazy to replace them now they’ve been there since the reboot started they would owe Katy a lot of money. I think they need to change the start of idol instead of competeing with the voice. Idk why people watch the voice nobody comes out of it idk anybody from it. But change some things up for real

  5. Just add a fourth judge. The Voice has 4 judges so it would be fair. Then change the format of Hollywood Week. Due to covid, they can no longer subject the hopefuls to excessive stress and it's very unfortunate because Hollywood Week mimics the pressure of the real Hollywood setting. But since they can no longer make people not sleep for 3 days, make the rounds exciting.
