American Idol Will Be Back for Season 14

Fox may have given The X Factor the boot, but it's not closing up shop on American Idol anytime soon. The network has officially renewed the long-running singing competition for Season 14.

The announcement came Wednesday when American Idol revealed that auditions for the new cycle will kick off on June 18 in Minneapolis, Minn.

It remains to be seen which judges will return for the new season. After a conflict-heavy Season 12, this year's trio has earned favorable reviews. However, Jennifer Lopez is set to star in an NBC cop drama that will begin production in 2015, and it's unclear whether she could juggle both commitments.

Longtime host Ryan Seacrest is in negotiations to return to Idol, according to Deadline.com.


Are you glad Idol will be back? Which judges would you like to see return?

I have given up on AI. It used to be about talent but now it has turned into a pity party show. Feel pity for me because my relatives are all from the hills or my dad has cancer or my child can't see his mommy right now. Then to top it off the screaming of the so called fans are unreal. Get back to a show about TALENT not PITY ME and I should win. I can't sing but play a singer on TV has run it's course.

It was nice the judges got along, but the individuals they picked for their final 20 was average at best. I stopped watching early into the competition.

Fox cancels Enlisted and Surviving Jack, but keeps this show that was old after its first season? Reality shows are to TV as Justin Beiber is to music...stupid and useless!

I didn't really like Harry at the begining of the season but I am starting to now. I hope all three return.

Good news!, 'cause I'm still a fan.

Regardless of the average talent they "idols" had been charming... this season the show improved. I hope that the 3 judges (and of course Ryan) comes back... this season felt like they have more chemistry between them and it was fun.
