Breaking: AMERICAN IDOL Season XIV to Have 'Streamlined' One Night/Week Format

During FOX's Upfront Presentation press conference this morning, it was announced that the upcoming 14th season of American Idol will take on a new format. FOX executives shared that the long-running singing competition will be "less hours" and will be "streamlined." Currently the show airs approximately 50 hours per season. Network execs plan to air 37 hours of the show in 2015.

While the audition portion of the season will remain as a two-night event, the remainder of the season will "quite likely" switch over to a two-hour, one night per week format.

It was reported last week that all three judges, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. have all signed on to return for next season, along with host Ryan Seacrest.

About AMERICAN IDOL

No other show in TV history has proven to be a force in the entertainment industry like AMERICAN IDOL. American Idol solidified itself as the No. 1 television show for nine consecutive seasons and, following its 12thseason, still remains a Top 5 program. IDOL is the gold standard and the only TV singing competition show to produce hit recording artists. From the first-ever IDOL winner, Kelly Clarkson, who continues to dominate the charts with three Grammy Awards under her belt, to Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips, whose debut single, "Home," has become the best-selling single of any IDOL to date, American Idol is a bona fide cultural phenomenon. Season 12 winner Candice Glover continues to show the strength of the IDOL brand when her album, "Music Speaks," was the first album from an IDOL to debut in the Top 5 on iTunes when it was issued for pre-order on the night of the series' season finale.
