Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie are urging fans to stay inside during the pandemic. They have the perfect family programming suggestion. It's about episodes of American Idol, the perfect entertainment while staying at home.


Many shows have been put on hold during the coronavirus pandemic, but American Idol is still in the pre-taped part of its ongoing season. New episodes will continue to air, although production was suspended for upcoming episodes and contestants were sent home to their families.

American Idol is now in the "Hollywood Week" portion of the season, and will feature duets on Sunday night's episode. Meanwhile, American Idol judges are sharing posts on their Instagram accounts encouraging their fans to stay home.



The singer and music producer shared a message on his Instagram encouraging fans of the show not to miss the new episodes. Richie spread the message from his family to all fans.

“We are all in this together. Tonight, let us find comfort through inspiring American Idol stories of triumph, courage, and strength… From the Richie Family, stay safe and stay healthy.”


The "Never Worn White" singer told fans on her Instagram, that she will be watching the show from home, cuddling with her dog and suggested her fans to do the same.


“I don’t know about you, but I am so grateful for my dog at this moment. She and I are going to be watching @AmericanIdol together tonight, so cuddle up with your favorite pet, stuffed animal, pillow, or canned good…”


Bryan shared a photo with his son on the sofa, ready to enjoy the night together. Both look joyful smiling and giving thumbs up in the picture. The singer was especially happy because his son, Bo, was turning 12 years old and they decided to celebrate it.



American Idol is another show to be affected by the coronavirus pandemic, so it is also suspending its production. Apparently, filming has been stopped and contestants were able to go home to their families, while production is still working remotely.


A large number of events have been canceled due to coronavirus pandemics, like sports competitions, leagues, concerts, and many others. American Idol is no exception, so at this time its producers are reviewing how to continue when it all goes back to normal.
