Sneak Peek of 'American Idol' Special Broadcast


After American Idol launched its eleventh season with a two-night premiere event that featured contestants belting their hearts out on the East Coast, the hit singing show is planning a special broadcast this Sunday from sunny California.

As seen in the featured preview, the auditions for this Sunday's special show were filmed on an aircraft carrier in San Diego.

In the sneak peek of this weekend's episode we see some contestants with some great pipes as well as some contestants who don't get too much love from the judges, including a shirtless man who sings Celine Dion's "I Surrender."

Check out American Idol's special broadcast this Sunday on FOX.
