      • Ray Chew is the new musical director/band leader. Ricky Minor left to replace Kevin Eubanks on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

      • The Semi-Finals are a bit different this year. They have all the boys perform one night and all the girls another, like usual. But instead of two boys and two girls going home each week, there is only one week of Semis and the Top 5 boys and Top 5 girls will be put through into the Top 10, and then there will be a Wild Card week. The Wild Card was last used in Season 8. There was no specifics on how the Wild Card would work, (i.e. how many sing again and how many get voted through etc.)

      • Since Simon has left, Randy takes over the last spot for critiques. He has always been in the first seat for the live shows. That spot is now Steven's, and Jennifer sits where Paula use to.
