American Idol moving to ABC is bound to leave FOX a little green, and they might even spend a little in retaliation. FOX is apparently working on a brand-new singing competition to rival Idol and The Voice with a unique format.
Just when you thought American Idol had floated back out to sea, ABC may be throwing a lifeline. The Dancing With the Stars network has reportedly made a bid for the 2018 revival where FOX and NBC couldn’t, but Ryan Seacrest might finally be too busy to participate.
The American Idol Finale was a star-studded event with appearances from previous Idol contestants and judges, like Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Simon Cowell and even William Hung. But the best AI comeback of the night was, hands down, Ryan Seacrest's former co-host, Brian Dunkleman.
