American Idol Recap 1/7/15- Season 14 Premiere- Auditions #1
“American Idol” is back for a fourteenth season and anything can happen. We have seen success from former contestants and winners such as Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, Phillip Phillips and so on. Runner-up Adam Lambert is actually going to be a guest judge during the auditions this season, taking time away from touring with Queen.
Returning to the judge’s table are Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban. Urban actually had to leave for a short time when wife Nicole Kidman’s father passed away. That was when alum Adam Lambert stepped in to take over and I am super excited about it, not that I don’t love Keith. Sadly, we are losing Randy Jackson, an original judge turned mentor as he has decided not to return.
Tonight, the show premieres for just one hour and the auditions take us to Nashville, Tennessee. This is a place that both male judges are very familiar with. And never fear; Ryan Seacrest will still be hosting and embracing the winners and those who don’t make it through. I am excited to see what talent we will find in Nashville this evening.
