According to "Entertainment Weekly", the reboot, which will air on new network ABC and also feature Katy Perry and Lionel Richie on the judging panel, is set to take place in the same Monday night time slot as NBC's popular program, "The Voice", which stars six-time winning coach Blake, along with Adam Levine, Alicia Keys and season one "Idol" victor Kelly Clarkson. While they each come from diverse backgrounds, both personally and professionally, Perry, Bryan and Richie have clicked together, and even covered a Jackson Five song during a TCA cocktail party. "That's fun. We want the humor but we don't want the exploitation", she said. There's been a lot of talk about how is this show different. "These days you have to light yourself on fire on Instagram while singing and still might not get enough hits", Perry said.

"I love Simon, he's my favorite judge", she said. Richie shared that he was at a point in his career where he was being offered videos teaching students about the art of making music. She closed with, "I'm gonna be trying to lift people up out of their situations for the rest of my life I think".

Perry revealed her approach to Idol, though her fellow judges hinted that she's "blunt" with the contestants - in a nice way.

While the exposure and the paycheck surely played a part in Luke's decision, he says the overwhelming reason he wanted to do American Idol was to go on the journey with the contestants. "I mean, you started hearing whispers of it coming back, and then you hear it's on ABC".

Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered Officially Announce, Out in March on PS4
Ubisoft have announced Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered , a shiny new update of the game from 2014. I'm certainly looking forward to playing this one when it drops on PS4 and Xbox One on March 20.

"The American Idol endeavor felt like it was going to be a blast to be a part of", Bryan added. "The legacy of this franchise is important to me and to its fans".

'Literally, we are wasting our time if we are not finding another star. "That's what American Idol is".

What do you think about there being an American Idol 15 Monday show, and what do you think that this means for Dancing with the Stars' future - if anything? It's a crowded place, and I take it really seriously, sometimes to my detriment.

American Idol will return on March 11, airing both Sunday and Monday - up until the all-athletes season of DWTS premieres on April 30th.
