Country music radio personality, Bobby Bones -- who just won Season 27 of Dancing with the Stars -- will advise the contestants all season long as the in-house mentor.
"We knew that American Idol on ABC would unleash an opportunity for singers from all walks of life to realize their dreams and that these incredible contestants would have America rooting for their success," ABC executive Channing Dungey said in a statement earlier this year.
"I am thrilled that Katy, Luke, Lionel and Ryan will be back to once again embark on this Idol journey with us to discover the next crop of inspiring talent."
According to Deadline, American Idol will air episodes on both Sunday and Monday nights once The Bachelor concludes with its Season 23 finale on Monday, March 11.
American Idol will therefore reportedly begin airing Monday-night broadcasts the following week on Monday, March 18.
