American Idol is returning to TV on Sunday, March 11th, on ABC. We know that the judging panel will consist of Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry. 

Mostly, the show will be pretty similar to how we remember it, but there will be one MAJOR change; they will no longer play the “bad” auditions. WHAT?!

In the early years of Idol, the show played plenty of the bad auditions (mostly because then-judge, Simon Cowell, always had the best reactions) and most of those auditions became some of the most popular parts of the show.

For example, remember William Hung?

But according to show runner, Trish Kinane, “It doesn’t feel comfortable to put borderline unstable people up on stage and laugh at them.”

One person in particular is not a fan of this decision; William Hung! That’s right; take a look at what he had to say



Not going to lie, I have to agree with William on this one. What do you think? Will you be watching?
