The popular singing competition, “American Idol” will start airing in mid-January 2014 on Fox on Wednesdays and Thursdays. This will be the 13th season for the much popular show. Ryan Seacrest once again will host the show and judges will include former judges Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban and newcomer Harry Connick Jr. Jennifer Lopez is returning to the show after a brief absence. Keith Urban served as a judge last season along with singers Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. Harry Connick Jr. served as a mentor before so, he is not new to the show. Many hope that the new show will be without drama that engulfed the last season due to on-air sniping between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. Hope this time contestants are the limelight instead of judges.

Many expect the new season to bring some changes to the show based on viewer and contestant input. Viewers as well as younger contestants are asking the show producers to include popular current hits in addition to golden oldies. Still the show will feature popular Auditions, the Hollywood Week, and finally the Top 13 picked by judges. As usual the show will end in May 2014 after crowning a new “American Idol.”
