Talent Recap is the #1 independent website which is exclusively dedicated to the fans of the most popular talent shows around the world. As passionate fans of these shows, we provide news, analysis and fan engagement on America’s Got Talent, Britain’s Got Talent, The Voice, The X Factor, American Idol, The Four and its contestants.
AMERICAN IDOL, the iconic series that revolutionized the television landscape by pioneering the music competition genre, returned to the airwaves in March 2019 for its second season at its new home on ABC. The nationwide search for the next superstar kicked off in August 2018, as the Idol Bus traveled from Portland, Oregon, to Orlando, Florida, in its pursuit for talent, covering 23 cities across the country. Auditioning was made easier than ever as hopefuls also had the opportunity to submit audition videos online, as well as via select social media platforms using an official tag, #TheNextIdol, cultivating over 300,000 posts. Also, for the first time in “American Idol” history, hopefuls had the opportunity to audition through a livestream platform. Helping to determine who America will ultimately vote for to become the next singing sensation, are music industry forces and superstar judges, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Emmy® Award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest will return as host of the beloved series.

    I get goosebumps every time I watch his audition. In case you don’t know Alejandro Aranda goes by Scarypoolparty as an artist. Check his music in Spotify and all media. Check his BG-chat channel under Scarypoolparty and enjoy all his music and videos. He dropped his debut album in 2019 after a sold out US tour. The pandemic cancelled his European tour but he dropped an EP Doom Hologram in 2020 in 2021 he dropped a single HOME and then a second single Universe is part of his third album an EP that will be out at the end of March 2021. He is an amazing artist: singer, songwriter, storyteller, producer, multi genre musician and the most incredible thing is that he still a humble soul. ☮️Stay safe and enjoy his music.

  • Amanda Sargent
    Amanda Sargent

    Almost looks like Katie and her eyes is so intimidated and she doesn't want to lose her throne!! Anybody that goes on American idol if you're better than the people that are judging you they're not going to let you win they want to stay on top! And yes that's natural but if you're a good human being you wouldn't do that

  • Amanda Sargent
    Amanda Sargent

    It's always extremely strange that they look at Katie for approval. When they are both in their own right to make the judgment themselves. I really believe that Hollywood is full of sellouts

  • theschwartz3

    And....we haven't heard anything about him since.

    • Gypsy. Burstingheart
      Gypsy. Burstingheart

      He goes by Scarypoolparty as an artist. You can listen to his music in Spotify or ITunes. Check his BG-chat channel under Scarypoolparty and enjoy his music and videos. His debut album Exit Form in 2019 has 5 of the songs he performed during American Idol. He dropped this album after a US sold out tour with his band. His second album Doom Hologram in 2020 ( pandemic and all he was very active) in 2021 he released a single HOME with an incredible video. Then he released Universe where he had fun with trap music. This single will be included in his next EP which will be out next Friday. He is an amazing songwriter/storyteller. He has incredible skills in piano and guitar. ( check a couple of guitar lessons he just did in Instagram @scarypoolparty ) He is an incredible producer (Universe was done in his house over the pandemic) and he is still a humble soul. ☮️ stay safe enjoy his music journey 🙏

    The man has skill. That's without question and beyond doubt. It's his humility and personality that caught my attention. I've watched other clips of musicians that were almost as good as him but they thought they were the shit and made sure everyone else knew it. People who the average person can't stand to be around. Good on you Alejandro.

      He asked not to be the winner so he could create his own music in his own way. The winner of the show is obligated to conform to the show's demands.
