The 'American Idol' Reboot Has Fans Sobbing Already

But with a new network and a new panel of celeb-judges including Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, "American Idol Version 2.0" is looking to take back it's crown.

How can I watch it?

Perry added. "American Idol" returns Sunday, March 11 at 8 p.m. ET|7 p.m. CT on ABCEditor's note: The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of ABC and this station.

"Pope: The Most Powerful Man In History", 7 p.m. (CNN): Premiere of series examining the history of the papacy; how the papacy and Catholicism started and spread throughout Europe. Richie, Perry and Bryan are judges on ABC's reboot of "American Idol". You know it seems a little not soft I do try and watch myself because I do know how it feels to be in their shoes. On occasion, the runner up lucks out and is given a recording contract as well, but they don't get the luxury of calling themselves an "American Idol". In this first episode, we meet potential contestants from New York, Savannah, Los Angeles and New Orleans. However, Ryan Seacrest, who has been hosting the show since its start in 2002, will return for the new season as well. "It was special", Perry said cautiously before asking Ripa if she was willing to put in the work to grow with the judges if she were to make it to the show.

"What kind of star do you want?" the "Fireworks" singer continued.

"We wanted judges with credibility, who knew what they were talking about, were huge successes in their own right, who were articulate and who generally cared about the contestants", executive producer Trish Kinane told reporters in January. It reigned as TV's No. 1 series for nine years, peaking with 30 million viewers an episode in 2006. 16-year-old Harper Grace is known for her viral video of one of the worst performances of the national anthem, but she got some redemption during her Idol audition.

Three out of the 15 seasons to date ended with Tarheels as the winners: Barrino from High Point, McCreery from Garner and Johnson from Asheville. Here's all you need to know.
