LOS ANGELES (AP) – Two years after “American Idol” ended its hit run on Fox, it’s coming back for another try at success.
ABC’s version of the singing contest debuts at 8 p.m. EST Sunday with its original host, Ryan Seacrest.
Also intact is the goal of finding a music star – one such as Carrie Underwood, who built a blockbuster career after winning “Idol” in 2005.
The debut episode includes the familiar sight of would-be contestants eager to prove they have what it takes for a “golden ticket to Hollywood” and possible fame.
But Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, the new “American Idol” judges, say they’re ready to make the job of finding a star their own.
