American Idol First Look Video Focuses On New Judges And Some Audition Highlights
American Idol is back tonight. The popular Fox singing competition returns for Season 12, introducing three new judges to the table, joining the sole remaining original judge Randy Jackson. Fox has released a new first look video that features new judges Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Nick Minaj talking about their involvement in the show and getting to be judges in the competition.
Are you ready for it? The audition episodes begin airing tonight, introducing us to the latest crop of singing hopefuls, some of whom might make it all the way to the finals. It's anyone's game at this point. Plus, we have three new judges to get to know. Will Mariah and Nicki's rumored distaste for one another be evident from the start? Will one of the new judges follow in the footsteps of Simon Cowell in being brutally honest? It's hard to say from the video below, but it does serve as a nice teaser for tonight's premiere and the season to come.
We get a few snippets of people singing and more of the contestants celebrating, but the focus of the video seems to be on the judges and how they feel as the competition heats up. We'll have a better idea of how Urban, Carey and Minaj do as judges soon enough, but I'm more interested in seeing if we can spot the next great superstar in these early rounds.
American Idol Premieres tonight (Wednesday, January 16) at 8:00 p.m. ET on Fox.
