Ryan Seacrest will return as host, with former judge Randy Jackson acting as a mentor.

  • Karen

    the GERIATRIC AI. hahaha!
    American idol for OLD people. LMAO.

  • Louise

    Well, Karen, at least OLD people are intelligent and knowledgeable; unlike young people who think they know everything and don’t know a bloomin; thing. Beautiful set of judges and so anxious for the new AI season.

  • jess

    Don’t know about Keith but the other two are just there to revive their dead careers. Jlo is all about ME,ME,ME LOOK AT ME….

  • Sophie

    The judges should have enough experience to know what their talking about. Simon, paula and Randy weren’t kids.

  • She Stinks!

    JHO Bag must of realized her career tanked and she needed a steady paycheck. I’m not surprised, her last single bombed, that movie tanked, her career continues on a downward spiral. I look forward to her drifting into obscurity for good.

    The mustard has come off this hot dog already.

  • seriously!

    Great ! .. no more drama thank god , this whole Nikki minaj and Mariah Carey thing was just ridiculous . I do like Carey it’s Minaj that was the problem . Hopefully the show will get better Harry Connick Jr is pretty funny !

  • eww

    Nice to see one male on the judging panel. Jlo and urban look like sisters.

  • Laurel

    Wow, to be J-Lo sitting between those two pieces of bread.

  • Elena

    I wish Mariah had decided to stay for another season. Mariah, Keith and harry would make a great panel of very talented singers. Lopez doesn’t belong there, she can’t sing and should not be allowed to judge singing talent. She is only there to save her career again
