'American Idol': Did Louisiana's Laine Hardy make it to the finals?

The TV singing contest that launched Underwood's career is wrapping up its second season on ABC and 17th overall (it was previously on Fox).

However, the Deadline report claims that the network and the trio of judges are both, 'said to be far apart, ' so it's possible there could be a new lineup of judges.

The series is doing well ratings-wise. In the live + same day ratings, "Idol" has been averaging a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 this year, down from its previous season's 1.6 average. The Monday episodes are notching a 1.5 rating and 8.3 million viewers. Alejandro Aranda, Madison VanDenburg and Laine Hardy are the three remaining contestants who will compete for the crown in 2019. We are in those conversations but right now, from our side and the judges, we're just focused on getting through Sunday and having a great night and we'll be back in the conversation.

That report also stated that host Ryan Seacrest and judge Luke Bryan were paid $12 million apiece, while Lionel Richie earned $10 million for his hosting duties.

AMERICAN IDOL, the iconic series that revolutionized the television landscape by pioneering the music competition genre, returns on ABC.
