‘American Idol’ Is Back, Here Are The Best Country Auditions

Oh, the memories.

After all the rumors of whether American Idol was going to come back, it was officially announced this week (May 9) on Good Morning America that it is being revived by ABC, instead of FOX.

Since American Idol gave us Carrie Underwood, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, and more, I’m not too mad about this.

Although I love all of the stars that are born on this show, Ryan Seacrest was the reason I kept watching for 15 seasons. None of the judges have been announced yet and neither has the host but if it’s not Ryan Seacrest, I’m not sure who could do it justice.

Since Ryan is the new co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan, he talked about on the show that he had no details on the revival and Kelly encouraged him to host again.

Regardless of the cast, I’m hoping we get some more amazingly talented artists. Here are some of my favorite country music auditions from the years of the show…
