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?
