American Idol Season 14: Who's Coming Back?

by at . Comments

Change will NOT be coming to American Idol Season 14.

Despite the series plunging to all-time low ratings on Season 13, Fox has confirmed that Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. will all return as judges for the upcoming go-around.

Ryan Seacrest, of course, will also be back as host.

"Jennifer, Keith, Harry and Ryan are the very best in the business at what they do, and I’m thrilled that they are returning to American Idol for another season,” said David Hill, Senior Executive VP, 21st Century Fox.

"Each brings unique qualities and expertise to the team, but they all share the same passion for helping undiscovered singers achieve the American dream.”

American Idol, which crowned Caleb Johnson champion, fell 28 percent among adults 18-49 last season, but few blamed the judging panel, which displayed solid chemistry.

Most believe the show has just naturally grown stale over such a long run, with other singing programs (The Voice, mainly) offering up new competition.

Season 14 will kick sing off in January.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
