There are going to be huge expectations for this show to succeed and we wonder if those expectations are going to expand out now with the news that Dancing with the Stars is being held back specifically because of this show.

American Idol will return on March 11, airing both Sunday and Monday - up until the all-athletes season of DWTS premieres on April 30th. "These days you have to light yourself on fire on Instagram while singing and still might not get enough hits", Perry said.

Despite having to regrow its audience, it seems ABC is confident in its "American Idol" season 16 cast, which also features longtime host Ryan Seacrest.

Katy Perry describes American Idol using Trader Joe's chicken nuggets " The biggest gift for me personally is being re-inspired by their raw dreams, their raw ambition, their hope. [But] I was knocked up for, like, three years. I had two cars repossessed. I was couch surfing. "I had two cars repossessed, I had three labels drop me, I was couch-surfing.I was eating Trader Joes' frozen chicken nuggets every day of the week".

"What was important to me [about the reboot] was that there were going to be stars on the show that were going to come on to collaborate and take this seriously and give the franchise what it deserves", he told one TV critic. "That's what American Idol is".

Luke Bryan, Kate Perry and Lionel Richie are excited for the upcoming premiere of "American Idol" reboot on ABC.

A lot has been said about how different this new iteration of Idol, with judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, but the changes to the format - if there are any - appear to be minimal. "And then I get the call to do it". I've got a little bit of my pop lane. "I started out-and I'm loving it where they're saying when they started-I started out with an antiquated thing called radio".

The former American Idol-turned-superstar has turned down numerous offers to join other shows, always knowing The Voice was ultimately the show for her. Clarkson actually knew about the show long before it even aired and thought it was brilliant to remove the "aesthetic appeal" and focus on raw talent.

No one even tried.
