Everyone’s Back

Fans are excited about the return of judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan, who will be returning for the sixth time.

Fans also love Ryan Seacrest, rightfully so, as he has been hosting the show for 18 seasons! They are excited to see one of television’s beloved hosts back for yet another season.

One Platinum Ticket Is Already Taken

Last season a new form of the “Golden Ticket” was introduced called the “Platinum Ticket,” which takes the contestant straight to Hollywood and lets them sit out of the first round of Hollywood week. Elijah McCormick won America’s vote and was already awarded the “Platinum Ticket” for this season; the rest will be given out during the show.
