American Idol Brings The Magic Of Vegas To Fans In Season 21 Teaser

Recently, the American Idol judges gave fans a sneak peek at the show’s 21st season making their arrival to Las Vegas with Idol host Ryan Seacrest. In the new promo, judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie make their way through Sin City in their quest to find the latest winner of the popular competition series.

In the fun clip, Katy Perry walks past a golden neon sign with sparkles that practically scream Las Vegas. The sign reads “Sin City” as the singer and judge approaches. However, as Katy Perry makes her way past the sign the letters change and it reads “Sing City.”

The group then hit up an American Idol slot machine. Golden tickets fall on the Idol judges after they pull the machine’s lever while Seacrest ponders “Who will win big and be the next American Idol?
