We already talked about the big surprise.
Now, TMZ.com has exclusively obtained a script and production schedule for the new season of American Idol. Season Six contestants who make it to Hollywood will be put into singing groups and judged on their performances.
Contestants for the new season were asked to perform various musical numbers, including songs by the Bee Gees, Beach Boys, The Supremes and The Four Tops. Wannabe Idols are tossed into a film-style schedule, starting their day at 6:30 a.m and wrapping at 5:30 p.m.
One of the songs they are judged on? California Dreamin'. Seems apt for American Idol hopefuls, doesn't it?
