Will there be a music video challenge? No.

Must contestants sing songs from various genres? Yes. Says Nigel Lythgoe: "If you do Motown, then I’m not sure [how] you’re going to sing an R&B song and give it your country flavor... it’s not going to be like that. They’ve got to be clever with it.”

Will voting move online? No.

How will the show replace the top 24 round? With a sudden death Top 20 round. In Hollywood, it will narrow the contestants down to 20 crooners, and then will viewers vote in a round that will select the finalists from among two groups of ten.

How many finalists will there be? 10 or 12.

Will there still be gender parity? No. Says Ken Warwick: "If I’ve got six fantastic boys and four average girls, I’m certainly not going to throw out a fantastic boy to put in another average girl, or vise versa."
