Katy, crook your head to one side so you look more endearing than an ultra-rich and out-of-touch superstar elitist who is kicking nuns out of their convent to build a luxury home. I want to know who was the utter dumbass that in any way thought bringing back the tired old warhorse that is American Idol was a good idea.
Let friends in your social network know what you are reading about. Katy Perry is too wacky, too flirty and too distracting for "American Idol,' a show that once was about the singers, not the judges. A link has been sent to your friend's email address. A link has been posted to your Facebook feed.
I do wish we could have American Idols, the show, but I think that America did a fantastic job at voting for this first live show. After his emotional performance, Perry was seen wiping the tears from her eyes before giving Harmon some words of encouragement. You know it seems a little not soft — I do try and watch myself because I do know how it feels to be in their shoes.
So why has the show seemingly broken from tradition this year in practically ignoring its previous victor, Maddie Poppe? The look infuriated the Poppe posse. What form that will take is unclear, but bringing Poppe back would support comments made last May by Disney Music Group president Ken Bunt.
The biggest new thing in television over the last few years has been … bringing old things back to television. Also returning: one of the most successful reality shows of all time: American Idol.

What is not yet confirmed is whether judges Luke BryanLionel Richie and Katy Perry will also return, although all three of the stars seem to think it is likely they will join the cast again in When I started with this group I was a bit worried.
We can debate whether or not we need American Idol back so soon—it only went off the air two years ago, which means the gap between getting the boot and being rebooted is shorter than ever. One day that gap will cease to exist, and then what? Some version of the singularity where the computers take over but all they do is call us stupid and laugh at us randomly?
It's been a rough couple of weeks for American Idol. There was the uncomfortable kiss between Katy Perry and a year-old contestanta cringe-y moment when a hopeful raved about Taylor Swiftand now, a disastrous ratings slip as millions of viewers turn to The Voice instead. Monday night's episode of American Idol drew in only 7. Meanwhile, The Voice picked up close to 11 million viewers the same night.
