Calling all dreamers! Mariah Carey and the rest of the American Idol Season 12 judges want to get you excited about tuning in on January 16, 2012, with a new promo for the show.

First aired during the World Series finale game over the weekend, the inspiring clip features each of the judges speaking directly to the viewers.

“To all the dreamers,” Mariah says. “To everyone who thought they’d never have a chance,” Nicki Minaj chimes in. “It’s almost that time of year, America,” says Randy Jackson with an air of authority. “The time to make dreams come true,” adds Keith Urban.

Footage of what appears to be Idol hopeful singing and performing their hearts out in not-so-typical places (an open field, under a bridge, and on the stoop of a house) emphasize the everyman appeal of the show.

The promo ends with host Ryan Seacrest uttering his iconic phrase, “This is American Idol.”
