The 'American Idol' Reboot Won't Feature Bad Auditions!

American Idol is nearly back on the air – but one familiar tradition isn’t making the cut in the upcoming reboot: the bad auditions.

During the 2018 Winter TCA Press Tour on Monday (January 8), showrunner Trish Kinane revealed why they’ve opted not to include the auditions featuring bad singers.

“It doesn’t feel comfortable to put borderline unstable people up on stage and laugh at them,” she said.

“I think that people once thought that the judges saw everyone, and now you know there’s a line of producers who screen before them. We want the humor, but we don’t want the exploitation.”

American Idol returns on March 11.

    “now you know there’s a line of producers who screen before them” — very honest, and I applaud them for this.

    Great choice indeed… I read in case of some country’s freshman adaptation that “FreeMantleMedia® obligates producers to not intervene in judges’ conduct towards participants for the sake of authenticity” which sounded ludicrous and downright insensitive.

    Much Thanks to ABC® executives for pushing them for that…!!! 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
