The executive producer of Fox's "American Idol" said that the upcoming season of the singing contest will feature a big event midway through.
"Something we're working on is a big-event show, sometime in the middle of the season, something that will blow America away."
The show has also launched the careers of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and "Dreamgirls" star Jennifer Hudson.
"American Idol" returns to the Fox network schedule on Jan. 16.
