It may not come as much of a surprise, but last night Fox renewed American Idol for what will be the singing show’s 14th season. Despite a significant decline in ratings from its prime, Idol still does pretty well and is a reliable performer for the network.

According to Deadline, host Ryan Seacrest is very likely to return, and based on the lack of behind-the-scenes drama we’d expect the same judging panel to return as well.

And hey, who knows? If you go on, maybe you’ll one day become a big-shot politician!
