Well, that’s new! In a brand new video, Fox reveals the Top 24 singers of season 14 of ‘American Idol’ — but the show hasn’t even begun yet!
American Idol kicks off on January 7 and we can’t wait. Now, we pretty much don’t have to. Before the auditions kick off, we actually get to meet the Top 24 in a way. Watch this new video where Ryan Seacrest does the introduction.
‘American Idol’ Top 24 Revealed
“Before we even show you the auditions, we’re going to introduce you to the Top 24,” Ryan announces at the start of the video. “You will fall in love with them, you’ll root for ‘em and you’ll vote for ‘em. But right now, you will hear them.”
Yes, he says hear not see. In this new preview, all top 24 perform Michael Buble‘s hit song, “Feelin’ Good,” but while they’re on stage, we cannot see them. Each frame is blacked out so we only see their outline.
This definitely brings a new element for us as the audience. While watching the auditions, some really good listeners may actually be able to identify the singers that land themselves in the Top 24.
So, does this make you more excited for season XIV, HollywoodLifers? The three-hour, two-night premiere begins on Jan. 7 on Fox!
