‘American Idol’ to Continue Via First-Ever At-Home Remote Editions, ABC Confirms

The search for a superstar must continue. After taking some time to make the decision on how to proceed with “American Idol” as it heads into what should have been its live, shiny floor studio portion of the season, ABC has confirmed that it will continue via remote performances.

As of Sunday, April 26, “American Idol” will go live from various locations, as the show’s 20 finalists compete via remote video, while judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, as well as host Ryan Seacrest and in-house mentor Bobby Bones also appear from their homes. More details on how that will be accomplished will be revealed at a later date.

As for this Sunday, “American Idol” will continue with the second half of its clip special “American Idol – This Is Me (Part 2).”

ABC’s third season of “American Idol” kicked off on Feb. 16, and has continued with pre-taped editions up through this Sunday’s episode.
