FOX has revealed new details about flagship talent competition American Idol — and it sounds like the game is getting switched up for Season 11.

It's already been announced that Season 11 will premiere over two nights on Wed., Jan. 18 and Thurs., Jan. 19, with auditions for several weeks before Hollywood Week kicks off on Feb. 8. 

But there's a new twist that's just been revealed: the Performance Challenge, in which all Hollywood Week survivors will sing for the judges one additional time before Idol reveals the semifinalists on Thurs., Feb. 23. Sounds like an exciting shift to the tried-and-true Idol formula — we can't wait to see how it pans out!
