American Idol: This Season’s Best Auditions

If you’re anything like me, and a large percentage of other millennials, you grew up watching American Idol. 

The week just wasn’t complete unless you took the time to sit down with your bowl of popcorn to watch Ryan Seacrest introduce that week’s hopeful performers. More than that, nothing compared to hearing Simon’s sassy comments or hearing Randy Jackson’s iconic phrase – “it’s a no for me, dog.” 



So, upon hearing that American Idol was being taken off the air after 15 successful seasons, if felt as if television would never be the same. The show we all grew up with, looked forward to, and faithfully watched time and time again, was no more. 

There we several months in which rumors that another television network may or may not adopt the rights to the show after FOX gave it up, and low and behold, ABC came to the rescue. 



Now, the show is currently in its 16th season with beloved artists, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie, as its judges. 

For those of you who watch the show, you know that many of the auditions this season were nothing less than inspiring. However, for those of you who haven’t kept up with Idol’s weekly episodes, here are of few of the most notable auditions yet. 


1. This one is for you, Mom


2. “You’re a good human being”


3. Sibling Rivalry? 


4. The Next Celine Dion


5. You’re a property manager with a voice like that? 


Hollywood week begins tonight, Collegiettes – don’t forget to tune in!
