The team behind the popular mobile game Disney Emoji Blitz have created special emoji versions of American Idol judges as well as the show’s host.

  • In partnership with ABC Television Group, Disney Emoji Blitz has emojified American Idol host, Ryan Seacrest, and judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan.

  • The customized emojis were created in the same art style of the game’s fan-favorite characters, in celebration of the show’s upcoming “Disney Night” episode, airing Sunday, April 29th on ABC.

  • The emojified host and judges will be ‘blitzing’ social media leading up to April 29 across Disney-owned channels, including Oh My Disney.
