Fantasia: It’s ‘A Little Too Soon’ To Bring Back ‘American Idol’

Published: Tuesday 5th Dec 2017 by Rashad

Grammy winning diva Fantasia Barrino is one of 15 prized champions from ‘American Idol’s storied decade-and-a-half long reign over the reality singing competition format.

The juggernaut show, which said goodbye to airwaves in 2016, was barely gone a year before reports began swirling of a reboot.  Now that the reboot has been confirmed for a March 11, 2018 launch (with judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan onboard), some have begun taking to press to express their concern about just how successful a reprise of the series would be so soon given its significant ratings decline in its later years.

On a recent pit stop to Andy Cohen‘s ‘Watch What Happens Live’ (BRAVO), Barrino became one of those skeptics.  Quizzed by a caller on her thoughts on the show’s swift return, Fannie weighed in on that hot topic, the new judges, and more.
