Watch two new American Idol promos, featuring Mariah Carey and Keith Urban. Both are a departure from the Nicki Minaj-centered promo, which features soundbites of the hip hop artist that portray her as Simon Cowell mixed with the wackiness of Paula Abdul.
By contrast, Mariah and Keith’s spots are serious minded, with the pop star comparing her own early journey to pop stardom to the hopefuls who turned up to audition. Keith is awed by the transformation he sees when a singer enters the audition room and opens her mouth to perform. SPOILER ALERT. We get a glimpse of a big voiced singer!
