  • News August 13, 2015 NBC’S “WAITING ALL DAY FOR SUNDAY NIGHT” STARRING CARRIE UNDERWOOD HITS BIG SCREEN IN THEATERS TOMORROW, FRIDAY, AUGUST 14
    New Cinema Spot to Roll Out on Movie Screens Nationwide
    LOS ANGELES – Aug. 13, 2015 – NBC Sports Group today announced a new cinema spot debuting tomorrow, Friday, August 14 starring seven-time Grammy Award-winner and multi-platinum recording artist Carrie Underwood performing “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” the opening theme for primetime television’s No. 1 program, Sunday Night Football on NBC.
    The piece, a 2½-minute behind-the-scenes look at the making of this year’s Sunday Night Football show open featuring Underwood and NFL stars, will debut tomorrow, Friday, August 14 in National CineMedia’s FirstLook pre-show program in AMC, Cinemark, and Regal Entertainment Group – a network of more than 19,000 movie screens.
    The announcement was made during NBC Sports Group’s presentation at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in Los Angeles, Calif.
    “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” is set to the original Joan Jett song, “I Hate Myself for Loving You.” This marks Underwood’s third season performing the song with NBC Sports.
    SNF NO. 1 PRIMETIME PROGRAM ON TELEVISION FOR 4 YEARS RUNNING:
    For the fourth consecutive September-May television season, NBC’s Sunday Night Football finished as the No. 1 show in primetime in household rating, viewership and the coveted Adult 18-49 demographic, based on live plus same day data from The Nielsen Company (September-May). This marks the only four times on record that a sports series has been the highest-rated and most-watched show of the primetime TV season. For the 2014-2015 primetime television season, Sunday Night Football ranked as the highest-rated (12.5 HH rating), most-watched show (21.3 million, viewers 2+), and the No. 1 program in the key Adults 18-49 demographic (7.7 rating).
    ABOUT CARRIE UNDERWOOD: Carrie Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 American Idol win to become a true multi-format, multi-media superstar, spanning achievements in music, television, and film. A seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner, she has amassed nearly 100 major honors, sold more than 56 million records worldwide, and recorded 21 #1 singles, 11 of which she co-wrote. The first female artist to be twice named the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year, Underwood was recognized as Pollstar’s top female country touring artist for her headlining tours in 2008, 2010, and 2012. Her four studio albums, Some Hearts, Carnival Ride, Play On, and Blown Away – each certified multi-Platinum or Platinum, and each an American Music Awards winner as Country Album of the Year – tallied 38 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with songs that have been streamed more than 1.4 billion times worldwide. In 2013, she starred as Maria von Trapp in NBC’s three-hour holiday blockbuster, the Emmy®-winning The Sound of Music Live!, whose airings attracted 44 million viewers. In late 2014, the Grand Ole Opry member released her first hits collection, Greatest Hits: Decade #1. Celebrating her first 10 years of music, the 25 songs included two new hits co-written by Underwood: the Platinum-certified, GRAMMY-winning “Something in the Water,” as well as the #1 smash “Little Toy Guns.” On November 4, she’ll return for an eighth consecutive year as co-host of the CMA Awards. Underwood is currently working on new music for her fifth studio album.

That means The Mindy Project is off the schedule after Jan. 28. But it returns on April 1 with two episodes at 9/8c, then moves to 9:30/8:30c on April 8. Also: Greg Kinnear's Rake, meanwhile will air Thursdays at 9/8c behind American Idol starting 1/23. Fox says it still has more to announce later.

    Grammy Award-winning and platinum-selling recording artist, actress, movie and television producer and entrepreneur Jennifer Lopez returns to AMERICAN IDOL XIII as a judge. Lopez will be joined by Grammy- and Emmy Award-winning multi-platinum singer, musician, songwriter, composer and film/television and Broadway actor Harry Connick, Jr. The two will sit on the IDOL judges’ panel with previously announced judge Keith Urban, the four-time Grammy Award-winning country artist who has sold more than 15 million albums.
    Rounding out the team is IDOL veteran Randy Jackson, who will lend his industry and IDOL expertise to the contestants as an in-house mentor. Once again, the team will be led by Emmy Award-nominated host Ryan Seacrest, who has guided the IDOL contestants and judges through each season’s incredible journey.
    Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company said, “AMERICAN IDOL has always been about discovering the next singing superstar, and next season our judging panel will deliver a most impressive combination of talent, wisdom and personality to do just that: Jennifer Lopez, the triple-threat global superstar who loves IDOL and whom IDOL fans love; Harry Connick, Jr., a bona-fide musical genius and fantastic IDOL mentor whose honesty and expertise can help turn these hopefuls into stars; Keith Urban, a multi-Grammy-winning artist who was such a positive force on the show last season. We are also very excited to have our friend Randy Jackson now in a new role as mentor, and the captain of our team – the heart and soul of IDOL – Ryan Seacrest returning as host.”
    “#IDOL2014TheRemix,” tweeted Jennifer Lopez.
    “I have always been a huge fan of AMERICAN IDOL and really enjoyed my time as a mentor on the show,” said Harry Connick, Jr. “And I am honored that they’ve asked me to be a judge this season. As an entertainer, I am truly excited to bring my perspective to AMERICAN IDOL, and to help emerging performers find their way.”
    “Surprise, surprise! I am so happy to be back as part of this amazing show that started it all,” said Randy Jackson. “Season 1-3 is the place to be. The original talent show is back with a vengeance and ready to discover the best talent in America.”
    “I think this season of IDOL is gonna be a blast,” said Keith Urban. ”New team, new energy and a whole new field of artists to be discovered and given a chance!”
    “I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of the AMERICAN IDOL XIII family. Our new producers, judging panel and mentor are all fired up for this season,” said Ryan Seacrest. “I’ve already witnessed some amazingly talented contestants from around the country during our early auditions, cementing my belief that a new superstar is well within our sights.”
    IDOL hopefuls will meet the AMERICAN IDOL XIII team when the auditions travel to Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Detroit, Omaha, Salt Lake City and San Francisco. AMERICAN IDOL XIII debuts in January 2014 on FOX.
    Universal Music Group’s Interscope Records, under the direction of Chairman Jimmy Iovine, will continue to release IDOL winner and contestant music.
    IDOL’s impact on the entertainment industry resonates beyond the scope of television. The series has brought generations together with a common goal: to discover the next music superstar. Over the past 12 seasons, IDOL finalists have released more than 200 albums, scored 396 No.1 Billboard hits, garnered more than 250 million iTunes downloads and have been certified with 95 Gold and 83 Platinum records. IDOL contestants have conquered Broadway, television and film and have won numerous awards and accolades, including American Country Music Awards, Country Music Awards, Grammy Awards and an Academy Award.
    About Jennifer Lopez: Actress, entertainer, music artist, film and TV producer, fashion designer, entrepreneur and humanitarian Jennifer Lopez has been called one of the most powerful and celebrated celebrities in entertainment.
    In 2012, Forbes Magazine named her the No. 1 Most Powerful Celebrity in the World.
    Lopez has transformed the global music scene. She has sold more than 75 million records worldwide and starred in multiple box-office No. 1 films, including “Monster-In-Law” and “The Wedding Planner.” In 2001, “The Wedding Planner” was the nation’s top-grossing film, while her album, “J.Lo,” was No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. The two simultaneous No. 1 honors made Lopez the first woman in history to have a No. 1 movie and No. 1 album in the same week.
    In May 2011, Lopez released the album “LOVE?,” The first single, “On The Floor,” also featuring Pitbull, became a worldwide phenomenon. This song shot to No. 1 in 18 countries and became the most downloaded song of her career. The music video set an all-time record, making Lopez the first female artist on online video site Vevo to rack up 100 million views in the shortest amount of time. The music video has become the most watched music video by any female artist in the history of YouTube, logging more than 686 million views.
    She made her feature film debut in the highly acclaimed “Mi Familia,” then earned widespread acclaim for her work in the title role of “Selena,” which brought her a Golden Globe Award nomination. Her film credits include Lasse Hallström’s “An Unfinished Life,” with Robert Redford and Morgan Freeman; Oliver Stone’s “U-Turn”; “Maid In Manhattan”; “Money Train”; Francis Ford Coppola’s “Jack,” with Robin Williams; “Blood and Wine,” opposite Jack Nicholson; Luis Mandoki’s “Angel Eyes”; “The Cell”; Steven Soderbergh’s “Out of Sight,” with George Clooney; Michael Apted’s “Enough”; and “Anaconda.” Playing the role of actress and producer, she starred in the feature films “El Cantante,” a drama about the life of salsa legend Hector Lavoe, and “Bordertown,” opposite Antonio Banderas. In 2011, she starred in the romantic comedy “The Back-up Plan.”
    In 2012, Lopez was part of the ensemble cast of “What To Expect When You’re Expecting,” and she lent her voice to the character of “Shira,” a sabre-toothed tiger, in the animated film “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.” In January 2013, she starred opposite Jason Statham in an adaptation of the crime/thriller literary series, “Parker,” directed by Taylor Hackford.
    This past year, Lopez also partnered with NUVOtv, becoming the Chief Creative Officer for the network. Nuyorican, her TV and film production company, already has produced several specials and series for the network. She also is executive producer of the hit cable series “The Fosters.”
    Lopez set the branding standard for celebrity fragrance, apparel and accessories. Last year, Lopez was named the celebrity with the most successful fragrance line in history.
    Her commitment to making a difference and her passion for making this world better is highlighted through her work with children, via The Lopez Family Foundation, a not-for-profit she started with her sister, Lynda. The Lopez Family Foundation is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of women and children, and raising the level of medical care available to them. The foundation is currently working with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles on a telemedicine program that will help underserved communities around the world to be treated with state-of-the-art technology and by top doctors. The organization opened its first telemedicine center in Puerto Rico in 2010 and seven new centers in Panama in 2011.
    About Harry Connick, Jr.: Harry Connick, Jr. is a rarity in the realm of entertainment, exemplifying excellence in every aspect of his multi-faceted career. He has won three Grammy Awards, two Primetime Emmy Awards and is a multiple-Tony Award nominee.
    A New Orleans native, Connick began his career as a performer at the age of five. At 19, he signed with Columbia Records. His stunning piano technique and vivid musical imagination was easily recognized on his debut, self-titled album. Soon after, he released his follow-up album, “20,” and then found multi-platinum success with the soundtrack to “When Harry Met Sally…”
    Connick’s continued musical success has spanned over the course of 29 albums, with sales totaling 28 million worldwide units. His most recent album, “Every Man Should Know,” was released in June 2013.
    In addition to his burgeoning music career, Connick also began acting professionally. Among his feature film credits are “Little Man Tate,” “Copycat,” “Hope Floats,” “Memphis Belle,” “Independence Day,” “Life without Dick,” “Mickey,” “Basic,” “P.S. I Love You,” “New in Town” and “Dolphin Tale.” His voiceover skills also were featured in “My Dog Skip” and “The Iron Giant.” Next fall, he will be seen in “Dolphin Tale 2,” the sequel to 2011’s No. 1 hit family film.
    On television, Connick is perhaps best known for his recurring role on “Will & Grace.” He also appeared in an arc of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” and has graced audiences with his musical talents in several primetime specials, including “Harry for the Holidays,” the Emmy Award-winning PBS specials “Only You in Concert” and “Harry Connick, Jr. in Concert on Broadway” and the animated tale “The Happy Elf.”
    His Broadway career boasts equal recognition, having received Tony Award nominations as both composer/lyricist for the musical “Thou Shalt Not” and as the lead in the Tony Award-winning revival of “The Pajama Game.” He also has adapted “The Happy Elf” for children’s theater, starred in the Broadway revival of “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever” and – on the 20th anniversary of his first Broadway concerts at the Lunt-Fontaine Theatre - brought his live show for an extended residency at the Neil Simon Theatre.
    Not surprisingly, Connick has used his influence as an entertainer to further his charitable work. Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, he created, along with fellow musician and “New Orleanian” Branford Marsalis, the Musicians’ Village in the Upper Ninth Ward. The village provides homes for musicians and other displaced citizens, a community center with a performance hall, recording studio and after-school facility for kids. His contributions to the post-Katrina effort have been acknowledged by a Redbook Strength and Spirit Award, an honorary degree from Tulane University and the 2012 Jefferson Award for Public Service.

  • COUNTRY MUSIC SUPERSTAR KEITH URBAN RETURNS TO “AMERICAN IDOL XIII” JUDGES’ TABLE
    Keith Urban, a four-time Grammy Award winner who has sold more than 15 million albums, will return to AMERICAN IDOL XIII as a judge.
    IDOL hopefuls will meet Emmy Award-nominated host Ryan Seacrest and the judges, including Urban, when the auditions travel to Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Detroit, Omaha, Salt Lake City and San Francisco. AMERICAN IDOL XIII debuts in January 2014 on FOX.
    Additional judges to be announced.
    About Keith Urban: 2013 is poised to be another spectacular year for Keith Urban, who has already celebrated the success of a sold-out Australian Arena tour and received his first Golden Globe Award nomination for his song “For You,” his initial foray writing specifically for a motion picture. A performance with the Rolling Stones and at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Concert, combined with Urban’s fourth annual All 4 The Hall Benefit Concert performing alongside Rebels and Renegades’ Willie Nelson, Kid Rock, Jason Aldean, Kris Kristofferson, Vince Gill, Tim McGraw and Eric Church, amongst others, has further solidified the respect that Urban has received as a musician and player.
    In the spring, Urban released his first single in nearly two years, “Little Bit of Everything,” and wrapped Season 12 of FOX’s AMERICAN IDOL, on which he serves as a judge.
    In July, he launched the first outdoor summer tour of his career, Light The Fuse Tour 2013, with Little Big Town and special guest Dustin Lynch. The tour will move into arenas in October and will continue through December. Urban’s eighth studio album, “FUSE,” will be released on September 10.
    In 2001, the Country Music Association honored Urban with its Horizon Award, designating him a talented artist with a bright future. He is the first Horizon Award winner in history to go on to win the CMA’s Male Vocalist of the Year, a title he’s captured three times, and the coveted Entertainer of the Year. More than 15 million albums later, Keith is a four-time Grammy Award winner who has also won a People’s Choice Award and American Music Award. He’s won five Academy of Country Music Awards, had 14 No. 1’s, including 28 Top 5 hits, and has had five consecutive platinum or multi-platinum albums. In 2012, he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
    Urban’s reputation as a songwriter, musician, vocalist and virtuoso guitarist is no more evident than when he is onstage. His electrifying concerts have played to sold-out venues from Australia to Germany, England to Canada and the United States. In fact, 2009’s Escape Together World Tour, as well as 2007’s Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy World Tour, were both one of the top-grossing tours for their respective years.
    Auditions are under way for AMERICAN IDOL XIII, with stops in Boston, MA, on Friday, Aug. 2; Austin, TX, on Wednesday, Aug. 7; and Omaha, NE, on Sunday, Aug. 11. Additional cities, dates and details will be announced on www.americanidol.com.
    In addition, the “AMERICAN IDOL Audition Bus Tour” will hit the road for a five-town mobile tour offering hopefuls a chance to audition for AMERICAN IDOL XIII and making stops at the following cities: Little Rock, AR, on Saturday, Aug. 17; Oxford, MS, on Monday, Aug. 19; Tuscaloosa, AL, on Wednesday, Aug. 21; Knoxville, TN, on Friday, Aug. 23; and Chapel Hill, NC, on Monday, Aug. 26. Specific locations to be announced.

  • Thursday, July 12, 2012 HOT FROM FOX…
    STEVEN TYLER HAS DECIDED TO DEPART HIS ROLE AS JUDGE ON “AMERICAN IDOL”
    Steven Tyler has decided to depart his role as a judge on AMERICAN IDOL. Tyler served as a judge during the 10th and 11th seasons of IDOL.
    “After some long...hard...thoughts…I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit,” said Tyler. “I strayed from my first love, AEROSMITH, and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band. The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass – the ultimate in auditory takeover…On Nov. 6, we are unleashing our new album, Music from Another Dimension on the Earth, Moon, Mars, and way beyond the stars…IDOL was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it…Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”
    “It’s been a tremendous honor to have Steven – one of the most prolific artists in the world – on AMERICAN IDOL for the past two seasons,” said Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “He’s been a terrific judge, a true friend and great mentor to everyone involved with the show, and we know he’ll continue to be a huge inspiration to IDOL hopefuls for years to come. We are very sad that Steven has chosen to focus more on his music, but we always knew when we hired a rock ’n’ roll legend, he would go back to the music. We all wish him all the best and would love to have him back on the show anytime.”
    “Steven Tyler is a real ‘Idol,’ a rock legend. If you had told me 10 years ago he would be a judge on AMERICAN IDOL, I would have thought it impossible,” stated IDOL creator and executive producer Simon Fuller. “The fact that this became a reality and we had the pleasure of him gracing our stage for two seasons makes me very proud. I completely understand his desire to get back to his life as the singer in America's greatest-ever rock band. AMERICAN IDOL will miss him!”
    “We’re all very thankful and privileged that Steven joined AMERICAN IDOL two years ago,” said Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO, FremantleMedia. “A true music icon, he not only brought rock ’n’ roll to the show, but also his exceptional taste in spotting and nurturing undiscovered talent. We will sincerely miss his poetic phrases, his remarkable creativity and his unique spirit. We’re sad about his departure from the show, but understand his decision to return to music full-time and hope he’ll be back to grace the AMERICAN IDOL stage in seasons to come.”

  • Billboard.com chatted with Steven Tyler as he promotes his new book, "Does The Noise in My Head Bother You?: A Rock 'n' Roll Memoir," and got some inside scoop on the future of Aerosmith, Johnny Depp and of course American Idol.
    Please see some excerpts from the Q & A below and the full interview here: LINK 
    Steven Tyler Q&A: On Making 'Noise in My Head,' Aerosmith & 'Idol,' Johnny Depp & More
    Exclusively confirms that Aerosmith will perform on the season finale of "American Idol"
    Oh yeah, we're playing the last show of the season. When I came on board, of course they were talking about, "Are you going to sing with the contestants?" I said I'll do a song, sure, but it was always my intention, always, to get Aersomith on the show. I mean, Joe's done it. I'm ready for it. I would love to play with Aerosmith.
    On whether he'd like to make a solo album:
    Oh, sure -- and I will. With [the single] I just wanted to do something on my own that I didn't have to filter through the band. I just wanted to see what I could do wtih my own songs -- God knows Joe Perry did it enough times. And I'll do more.
    On criticism that the Idol judges have been too positive this season/Simon Cowell:
    You don't tell someone you don't like them because of the song they're singing, you know? Well, that's what the other guy did, on several occasions. It's good TV. I get that... I came into this thing scared that maybe that wouldn't work because what they did before, Simon and that type of company, worked so well. But then I thought maybe nurturing... could be the new black. Maybe compassion could be the new black instead of black being the new black, y'know?
    On settling drama with bandmate Joe Perry:
    We're getting together for my father's birthday -- he'll be 95 -- in May and I'm gonna have a band meeting at which time we're gonna settle a lot of the tumult that's been going on in the last year between lawyers and managers... As John Lennon said, time for a new broom to sweep things clean, dahling!
    On friendship/possible collaboration with Johnny Depp:
    I've been hanging out with him lately; we're planning on writing a song together. He asked me, he said, "I want you to come over" -- he's got a studio here in L.A. -- "and see if I'm playing 'Seasons of Wither' right." I said, "Y'know what, Johnny? No matter how you play it, it's gonna be right. It's a beautiful thing."

    will.i.am & Jamie Foxx and Fantasia to Perform on Next Results Show Thursday, March 31
    Finalist Casey Abrams was saved from elimination tonight by the AMERICAN IDOL judges after he received the fewest of America’s more than 30 million votes. Abrams will continue in the competition as he takes the stage with the remaining finalists next week.
    On tonight’s show, Season Three finalist and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson returned to the IDOL stage, and multi-platinum country music duo Sugarland rocked the house. The night also featured a special performance by music legend Stevie Wonder to celebrate Steven Tyler’s birthday and an appearance by wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan.
    On Wednesday, March 30 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 11 finalists – Casey Abrams, Naima Adedapo, Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery, Paul McDonald, Thia Megia, Haley Reinhart and Pia Toscano – return to the IDOL stage to sing hits from the 1980s. For the first time ever, the Top 11 will travel the country this summer as part of the “American Idols LIVE! Tour 2011.” Cities, venues and dates will be announced at a later date.
    During the live results show on Thursday, March 31 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) tune in to find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition and who is sent home. In addition, Season Three IDOL winner Fantasia will perform her latest hit, “Collard Greens & Cornbread,” and will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas and Academy Award and Grammy winner Jamie Foxx will perform their first-ever musical collaboration on the IDOL stage. The duo will sing “Hot Wings (I Wanna Party),” an original song written for the highly anticipated animated feature film “Rio.”
    From the creators of “Ice Age,” “Rio” is a 3-D animated motion picture event – in theaters on April 15 – set in a world where the celebration never ends…and where adventure takes flight. The film’s mix of action, drama and fun is enveloped with a magical combination of Brazilian sounds and contemporary American music.

    The Black Eyed Peas and Lee DeWyze to Perform on Next Results Show Thursday, March 17
    Finalist Ashthon Jones was eliminated tonight on AMERICAN IDOL after she received the fewest of America’s votes. On Wednesday’s performance show, the Top 13 performed songs by their music idols, and Jones, 24, from Valdosta, GA, sang “When You Tell Me That You Love Me.” In addition, Adam Lambert sang his latest hit, “Aftermath,” and Diddy-Dirty Money featuring Skylar Grey took the stage to perform “Coming Home.”
    It was also announced tonight that the Judges’ Save returns this season. Like last year, up until only five finalists remain, the judges – if they unanimously agree – have the option to save from elimination the finalist receiving the lowest number of votes. The judges do not have to save a finalist during the competition. However, if they choose to use the Judges’ Save, they may only do so once during the season. The following week, the two finalists receiving the lowest number of votes will be eliminated.
    On Wednesday, March 16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Top 12 (Casey Abrams, Naima Adedapo, Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery, Paul McDonald, Thia Megia, Haley Reinhart, Karen Rodriguez and Pia Toscano) return to the IDOL stage to perform songs from the year they were born.
    Tune in the following night, Thursday, March 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), to the live results show to see performances by Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum pop superstars The Black Eyed Peas and IDOL Season Nine winner Lee DeWyze, as well as to find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition and who is sent home.

  • NARM, the music business association, announced today that it will honor American Idol, one of the most popular programs in the history of American television, with a special Outstanding Achievement Award to celebrate the show’s 10th season on the air and highlight its impact on the world of music. The Award will be presented at the 2011 NARM Convention Awards Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles on Thursday, May 12. Idol judges and contestants, as well as representatives from 19 Entertainment, FremantleMedia North America and Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX), will be invited to participate in the presentation that will revisit Idol’s journey to the top.
    “There is no question that American Idol has had a profound impact on the music business in terms of discovering new talent, inspiring new music, supporting live touring and contributing to recording sales with more than 50 million albums and over 160 million song downloads on iTunes,” said NARM President Jim Donio. “It is a certified pop-culture phenomenon that has earned iconic brand status over the past decade, and is the only TV program to have been No. 1 for seven consecutive seasons. This actually says even more about the public’s passion and devotion to music. We are so excited to be recognizing Idol’s unique achievements and adding our voice to the chorus of congratulations for this 10th season milestone.”
    Premiering last night, Wednesday, January 19, at 8/7c on FOX, Idol has undergone a number of well-publicized changes this year, including welcoming two new judges, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, who join original judge Randy Jackson and host Ryan Seacrest. The show has expanded its eligibility age range to include hopefuls from 15 to 28 years old, and will feature several additional format changes. Also, the show will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays this season.
