“The only show that made singers into superstars,” is how the new American Idol promo begins, “United fans across America.” OK. Not always. But I’ll let that one go. “…and defined an era!”
WATCH Jordin Sparks get excited as she gets 3 yeses from the original judges, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson. Watch Kellie Pickler dissolve into a puddle of tears as she leaves the audition room, golden ticket in hand.
And watch as TAYLOR Hicks, KRIS Allen, RUBEN Studdard and CLAY Aiken greet singers hoping to get THEIR shot on the show. All four will appear on the American Idol two night premiere, airing Wednesday January 6 and Thursday January 7 at 8/7c PM on FOX.
