The show's producers also send a "mobile audition van" to various locations throughout the U. A round of first auditions is held in front of producers months before the show is aired, some by application and appointment, and others in "open" auditions that anyone can attend.
These auditions, held at various venues around the U. The producers' auditions are not televised, but shots of crowds waving and "judges' cars" arriving are filmed and later spliced in with the televised auditions shot later in the year. After waiting at the venue for hours during which crews film more shots of crowds screaming and wavingeach candidate is given a brief audition by someone from the production team.
If they pass that audition either because of their talent or because the producers think they will make entertaining televisionthey are given a "golden ticket" that allows them to audition for a more senior member of the production team.
Only candidates who successfully pass this second audition and then a third along similar lines are invited to perform in front of the judges.
The televised version misleadingly gives the impression that everyone in the huge crowds shown is waiting for fox business reporters nicole scherzinger chance to perform for the judges.
A selection of the auditions in front of the judges — usually the best, the worst and the most bizarre — are broadcast during the first few weeks of the show.
The judges' auditions are held in front of a live audience, and the acts sing over a backing track. If a majority of the judges in this case, at least three judges have to say "yes" then the act goes through to the next stage, otherwise, they are sent home.
Boot camp and judges' houses[ edit ] In the first two seasons, The contestants selected at the auditions were further refined through a series of performances at "boot camp", and then at the "judges' houses", until a small number eventually progressed to the live finals seventeen in season 1, and sixteen in season 2.
At boot camp, the judges collaboratively chose a small number of acts 32 in season 1 with eight in each category; 24 in season 2 with six in each category for the next round, "judges' houses". The producers then assigned each of the judges a category to mentor, and the judges split up for the "judges' houses" round, in which each of them hosted the contestants in their assigned category at a luxurious residence, often scattered around the globe.
The houses the contestants visited did not in every case actually belong to the judges, some were rented for the occasion. The contestants did not know who their mentor would be until they arrived at that judge's house. During this round, each judge held another round of auditions on location, and then further reduced the number of acts with the help of a celebrity guest.
In season three, these stages of the competition are being replaced by a new stage called "The Six-Chair Challenge", first introduced in the Dutch version of the series.
The mansion is also notably used for housing the finalists from American Idol. Celebrity guest performers also feature regularly. The performance shows are broadcast on Wednesday nights and the results show on Thursday nights.
In season one, seventeen acts were put through to the live shows, and sixteen acts were put through in season two.
In addition to watching the program live on television, the audience was now able to participate on multiple platforms in real-time. In the initial live shows, each act performs once in the first show in front of a studio audience and the judges, usually singing over a pre-recorded backing track.
Dancers are also commonly featured. Acts occasionally accompany themselves on guitar or piano. Each live show has had a different theme; each contestant's song is chosen according to the theme. After each act has performed, the judges comment on their performance.
Heated disagreements, usually involving judges defending their contestants against criticism, are a regular feature of the show. Once all the acts have appeared, the phone lines open and the viewing public vote on which act they want to keep.
Once the number of contestants has been reduced to five season 1or six season 2each act would perform twice in the performances show.
This continues until only three acts remain.Video Shows Anchors & Reporters Show Clips. Close the sidebar.
