Relive the glory days of 'American Idol'

Posted on

Is it too early to be nostalgic for 2002? We’ll see this fall when American Idol goes into syndication. For those who find one winter season of Idol a year isn’t enough, American Idol Rewind will debut in September. Rewind will revisit earlier seasons, but with episodes that Idol‘s producers say have been both ”streamlined” and ”enhanced” with previously unseen footage and backstage trivia. Could be interesting — maybe we’ll all look back and say: ”We knew it all along” (Kelly Clarkson) or ”What were we thinking?” (Justin Guarini).
