    AMERICAN IDOL, the iconic series that revolutionized the television landscape by pioneering the music competition genre, will return to airwaves on SUNDAY, MARCH 11 at 8|7c, at its new home on ABC.
    The nationwide search for the next superstar kicked off in August 2017, as the Idol Bus traveled from Portland, Oregon, to Orlando, Florida, in its pursuit for talent, covering 23 cities across the country. Auditioning was made easier than ever as hopefuls also had the opportunity to submit audition videos online, as well as via select social media platforms using an official tag, #TheNextIdol, cultivating over 300,000 posts. Also, for the first time in “American Idol” history, hopefuls had the opportunity to audition through a livestream platform.
    Helping to determine who America will ultimately vote for to become the next singing sensation, are music industry forces and superstar judges, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Emmy® Award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest will return as host of the beloved series.

    Mara has potential for sure, I just get the feeling watching her she is trying too hard and forcing it sometimes. Sorry, she is no Whitney Houston singing wise, nice try though.

    People really don't take into consideration the difficulty of the song sung.. Mara and Ada are by far the best vocalist of this season and I would bet the house Mara wins. Easy.

    She’s got potential, she needs to keep it together when she sings tho. She always gets to extra with it and ruins the song.

    I've always had my suspicion about Mara. Great voice but seems ingenuine, like she's grown up in the industry and puts on an act to be loveable. I now see that she sang on AGT at age 11 and has been performing since. I could be wrong but regardless she does have talent

    she's not going to make it if she's too emotionally unstable....u sing with confidence but control ur emotions. her emotions showed is truly unnecessary
