NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The American Idol judges are in New Orleans — or, at least they were!

Looking for Louisiana talent, our favorite judging team of Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan was in the Big Easy to set the stage for performers. For 21 seasons now, the show has brought us names like Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson.

This season, could we see a winner from the Bayou State? You’ll have to tune in to find out!

Catch the brand new season of American Idol on Sunday, February 19 at 7 p.m. right here on WGNO.
