Question: When will the new season 13 of American Idol start on Fox?

Answer: The next season of Idol is currently due to begin airing from January 15, 2014.

Though the new series won’t begin broadcasting until 2014, the first round of auditions get underway in Salt Lake City, Utah as soon as Thursday, July 11, 2013.

Season 13 of Idol will bare little resemblance though to the one which recently finished, with judges Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey all choosing to quit the reality show. Long serving host Ryan Seacrest is however is expected to return.

The new American Idol judging line up has now been officially announced as Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. Jennifer’s return makes her the first Idol judges to quit the reality show, only to return to on a later season.

Ex American Idol judge Randy Jackson will appear in 2014 as season 13’s in-house contestant mentor.
