I have to admit it’s been one of my favorite shows for several years. I thought the changes in judges in the last several years would make me like the show less, but not so. I’m still a fan and look forward to Wednesday and Thursday nights when it’s on. ‘American Idol‘ will begin it’s 11th season on Wednesday, January 18th with a special two night celebration. After all, sometimes the auditions are the best part of the season, right? 

Judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Steven Tyler return alongside host, Ryan Seacrest. This summer the group visited Savannah,Aspen, GalvestonPittsburghPortlandSan Diego and St. Louis to find Americas next star.
