"Idol" starts at 8 p.m. today on ABC, with judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, and returning host Ryan Seacrest. Since the first episodes of the show revolve around auditions, those were pre-taped. That's quite important. I have a farm truck that's used just for the farm. His presence on the show can feel endearingly loose, which is a nice way of saying he looks just happy to be there. Whether it was strategic, due to his name being in the news over sexual harassment allegations (which he has denied), or purely for scheduling reasons (he's on Live With Kelly and Ryan), we'll never know.

By giving fans instant access to millions of songs, streaming services further dampen the impact of music competition series. Call it American Idol Disney, or The Voice: Wish Upon a Star Edition, or, if you want to keep things musical, just sing its title to the tune of the Mickey Mouse Club theme: A-M-E R-I-C A-N-I-D-O-L!

The show sometimes strikes the right balance between "viral" and "inspirational" (a contestant who had a "Fergie moment" as a child seeks redemption on "Idol") but largely skews in favor of the former.

Cute little viral "moments" may inspire short-term chatter, but compelling, magical stories are what make shows like this matter. She kicks off Sunday's episode speaking over a montage of video images but doesn't actually appear in the episode outside of a clip from her 2005 win. "It felt like "Idol" wasn't getting the attention it needed to thrive, and that's what we'll do here". No one brings a Simon Cowell-like edge to the proceedings.

Conceptually, the new version, which debuts Sunday night, is exactly like the old. "But they are honest judges", says Mills.

Watch the clip below to find out how the other two judges reacted. "But it ended up being the best decision I ever made", he said.

The hot stuff, she said, set her voice straight right on time for Richie, Perry and Bryan.

Richie also likes using his experience to benefit new talents.
