      • According to producers they wanted to focus more on the good singers and personal stories in the audition episodes, and less on the William Hung-like contestants, although they still show many bad singers.

      • This season, for the first time ever, there are four judges. The newest judge is Kara DioGuardi. She is a singer-songwriter, who has collaborated with Christina Aguilera, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Pink, and many more, including former Idol winners Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and David Cook. Although, not releasing songs herself, she has appeared on other people's songs, such as David Archuleta's "To Be With You" off his self-titled debut album. The show had always intended for there to be four judges, and many other Idols do have four, but they never got one until this season.

      • The episode started with the quote "In life the microphone passes your lips but once…you had better be ready to sing" by David Foster. After there were clips from the previous 7 seasons.
