The incredible journey is about to begin as AMERICAN IDOL, America’s No. 1 show, returns tonight. Featuring host Ryan Seacrest and returning judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, AMERICAN IDOL is set to return with a two-night event showcasing the nation’s most extraordinary talent from Savannah auditions on Wednesday, Jan. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Pittsburgh auditions on Thursday, Jan. 19 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

Ford returns as the official automotive sponsor of AMERICAN IDOL. As a leading partner since the show’s debut in 2002, Ford will continue to engage AMERICAN IDOL fans with unique and exclusive content throughout the upcoming season. Once again, Ford vehicles and the AMERICAN IDOL finalists will be featured each week in Ford music videos, airing Thursday nights. This original content, along with candid “making of” segments featuring the contestants, will also be available on www.americanidol.com. In addition, Ford will launch an all-new online promotion, offering fans an exclusive chance to win the ultimate AMERICAN IDOL experience. More details will be announced shortly.


AMERICAN IDOL will continue to serve as a key platform for a variety of Ford vehicles, including the all-new 2013 Ford Escape. Ford will award a brand-new vehicle to both the runner-up and Season 11 AMERICAN IDOL winner.


For the 11th season of AMERICAN IDOL, Coca-Cola is offering programs that bring families together to enjoy moments of happiness and fun. AMERICAN IDOL is the kickoff platform for the Coca-Cola Family Night program, which presents activities and recipes throughout January and February that encourage families to “make tonight a family night.” They will also launch the new “Coca-Cola Music Cover Artwork” contest. Fans can develop their own special music cover graphics at www.mycokerewards.com/family and they could win a trip to attend the live AMERICAN IDOL finale. Coming back for a second year is the popular Perfect Harmony program that provides teens and young adults the opportunity to write a song with an award winning artist. This innovative collaboration will culminate in an incredible performance on the biggest stage in Hollywood during an AMERICAN IDOL broadcast. In addition, Coca-Cola will share exclusive behind-the-scenes content online at www.mycokerewards.com and www.americanidol.com, providing fans with an inside look at the contestant experience. Other activities designed to enhance the AMERICAN IDOL experience will be featured in a variety of retail outlets across the country.

AT&T returns this year to celebrate its 10th anniversary as the official wireless sponsor of AMERICAN IDOL. Once again, AT&T makes voting easier and more convenient for its customers through exclusive unlimited text-voting during the voting window after each show.* Additionally, AT&T customers will benefit from unique access to their favorite IDOL moments through popular mobile phone content, including Vote Number Reminder, Social Sharing of Votes and Idol Trivia.* (*Messaging and/or data rates apply.)

AMERICAN IDOL is produced by 19 Entertainment, a division of CKX, Inc. and FremantleMedia North America, Inc. The series is created and executive-produced by Simon Fuller, CEO, XIX Entertainment, and executive-produced by Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO, FremantleMedia North America, Inc.; Ken Warwick, Executive Producer, FremantleMedia North America, Inc.; and Nigel Lythgoe, CEO, Nigel Lythgoe Productions. AMERICAN IDOL has been No. 1 among Adults 18-49 for the past eight consecutive seasons.


The 2nd set of auditions begin in about 15 minutes for Eastern and Central time. (01/19/2012)  Did anyone stand out last night? There were several younger girls who stood out but I didn't keep track of their names, the only other one was Phillip Phillips who performed last and I did like the addition of his guitar. I'm not sure he can make it past Hollywood week.

The judges shouldn't have let go " Shane Bruce " from Moundsville so soon.  Sounded like he had a gifted voice that needed alittle help and i'm sure next time he was on stage could have done better.  I guess maybe next year for him.
