American idol auditions 2022 dates

Noah Thompson is still letting it sink in that he’s the American Idol 2022 winner. After a memorable season 5 finale, the country music singer is witnessing his single “One Day Tonight” soar to the top of the charts and enjoying time with his family. So, what’s next for the ABC singing competition show? It won’t be too long now before American Idol goes back on the road to discover the next great superstar.

In case you haven’t heard yet, the show has already been renewed for season 6 (overall 21st season). The news was announced just before the American Idol 2022 finale. According to Deadline, American Idol was the no. 1 show on ABC during its latest run with viewership increasing by 15%. In other words, everyone wanted to see if Noah, HunterGirl or Leah Marlene would win.

Although there might have been rumors that American Idol would follow Dancing With the Stars and leave the alphabet network for its streaming service Disney+, that won’t be the case. If you’re already looking forward to watching a new season of American Idol, we’ve got all the details.

When will the next season of American Idol start?

A premiere date for American Idol season 6 (overall 21st season) has not been announced. If the ABC competition show sticks to its usual schedule, American Idol season 2023 could return in mid- to late February.

Who are the American Idol judges next season?

American Idol judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan haven’t confirmed if they will be back for the next season. That said, the ABC panel doesn’t “generally sign up until later in the summer,” per Deadline. There also hasn’t been word about American Idol host Ryan Seacrest returning.

We’ll make sure to update this post with more details as they are revealed. But it’s almost a guarantee that the entire American Idol cast will be back for new episodes.

We want to hear what you’ve got!”

AI hopefuls can also sign up for Audition Alerts to be the first to know about Idol Across America Virtual Audition dates. (Noah first auditioned through this method before he stood in front of the judges.) American Idol will also eventually share in-person dates when the show hits the road.

How can I watch and stream the new season of American Idol?

When American Idol announces its season 6 premiere date, folks will most likely be tuning in to ABC on Sunday and Monday nights. If you can’t watch live on a TV or a streaming service (like YouTube TV or fuboTV), American Idol episodes usually become available the next day on ABC.com and the ABC app. Hulu users can also catch up on American Idol via the Hulu site or app.
