American Idol will begin its 15th and final season with a special two-night, four-hour premiere event Wednesday, Jan. 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Jan. 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Check out this preview from Wednesday’s premiere, which will feature auditions from Atlanta and Denver.
The judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. have a little fun as they sing the iconic theme from classic 70’s TV show, Laverne & Shirley.
Jennifer and Harry keep their eyes glued to the desk as they sing–probably at a sheet of lyrics–while Keith Urban looks up and at his fellow judges as he croons. He’s probably thinking “I’m Australian and I know the words to this song…what’s your excuse?” Heh. Bless Keith and his pop culture savvy. The trio even break out into a little harmony near the end. Fun.
