American Idol 2021: When is it on and how can I watch?

THE singing competition television series American Idol is returning for a twentieth season in 2021.

In two decades of American Idol, the series has jump started the careers of contestants such as Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson and Chris Daughtry among others.

When is the season premiere of season 20 of American Idol?

Season 20 of American Idol will premiere on Sunday, February 14.

The show will air at 8pm ET Sunday nights on ABC.

The winner of American Idol 2020 was Just Sam, née Samantha Diaz, who is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Harlem, New York.

Will Claudia Conway be on American Idol?

Claudia Conway, the daughter of Kellyanne Conway who served as counselor to former President Donald Trump, will appear on American Idol.

Claudia, 16, was featured in a commercial for the season premiere of American Idol.

“I'm very nervous but very excited,” Claudia says in the clip.

In the video, the narrator describes Claudia as a “social media sensation.”

The 16-year-old then says, “I’m Claudia Conway, my parents are high-profile political figures,” referring to former counselor to president Kellyanne Conway and conservative lawyer George Conway.

The narrator continues: “But will she get a ticket to Hollywood?”

Claudia appears to nervously await judges’ comments as one of them, Katy Perry, says, “We want an American Idol.”

A preview for the show aired during a commercial break for The Bachelor.

Claudia became a social media star after sharing her many clashes with her mother, in particular.

Tensions between the two appeared to come to a head in early January when Claudia posted a disturbing TikTok video with a woman she claimed to be her mother screaming and swearing at her. 

In late January, Claudia accused her mother of allegedly posting a nude photo of her on Twitter Fleets. 

Who are the judges for season 20?

American Idol will return with the same judging line up since 2016.

The show's judges are a trio audiences have come to know and love: Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry.

"Katy, Lionel and Luke are fun, astute and really know how to spot talent,” said executive producer and showrunner Trish Kinane on the return of the three judges.

“Their chemistry is undeniable, and we are delighted that they, along with host Ryan Seacrest, are returning to find the next superstar and take American Idol to new heights next season.”

Ryan Seacrest, who has fronted the show since it's inception in 2002, will return as host.
