After 12 seasons, American Idol can lay its claim as the only TV singing competition show to produce numerous hits and award-winning recording artists. Combined, Idol finalists have released more than 200 albums, no.1 hits on the Billboard charts over 400 times, and garnered more than 250 million iTunes downloads.
This January 2014, experience the road to fame as ETC brings you American Idol XIII.
Hosted by Ryan Seacrest, and featuring judges Harry Connick Jr., Keith Urban, and Jennifer Lopez, along with in-house mentor Randy Jackson, the series continues its search across America to find the next singing superstar.
This year the show’s judges travel to Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Detroit, Omaha, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco. With their years of experience as acclaimed artists, it’s up to them to narrow down the competitors to a select group of semifinalists who will sing in front of a live studio and TV audience. Then, from this stage forward, the viewing public determines who will advance to become a finalist and who will go home.
