Phillip Phillips has revealed the track list for all three versions of his debut album. A new promo video and photo for season 12 features Ryan Seacrest and the judges. And find out why Randy Jackson surprised a fan during a Carrie Underwood concert.

Phillip Phillips Announces Album Track List

Rather than go the formal route and announce it in a press release, Phillip Phillips unveiled this week the track list for his upcoming debut album, The World from the Side of the Moon, on Twitter: "What up guys! Got a surprise for ya! Revealing the track names soon!" And P2 fans will have three versions to choose from when they go to buy the album on November 19: the standard version with 12 tracks, a deluxe edition that adds on three bonus songs and a Target exclusive deluxe edition that includes all 15 of those songs, plus two more.

Standard Edition Track List:
1. Man on the Moon
2. Home
3. Gone, Gone, Gone
4. Hold On
5. Tell me a Story
6. Get Up Get Down
7. Where We Came From
8. Drive Me
9. Wanted is Love
10. Can't Go Wrong
11. Fools Dance
12. So Easy

Deluxe Edition Bonus Tracks:
13. Hazel
14. Wicked Game
15. Home (Live)

Target Exclusive Tracks:
16. Take Me Away
17. Thriller

Something that stands out from the deluxe edition is a live version of his hugely successful winning single, "Home." I wonder when this was recorded -- maybe during the Idol tour? And unless it just happens to have the same name, it looks like he'll be covering Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game," which he also did during Hollywood Week. And notice that final track: "Thriller." Besides "Superstition," Phillip also performed the Michael Jackson hit during his audition in front of the judges.

New Promo Features Ryan and the Judges

Coming on the heels of the American Idol season 12 promo focusing on Phillip Phillips' success since winning in May, a new promo video has made its way online. And this time, it features the judges and what appear to be auditioners. They're all holding up cards that say: "There are 7 billion people in the world. But there's only one Keith Urban, Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. Who will stand out from the crowd?"


The video from the other day pointed out that even after 11 years on the air, they're still creating successful winners. This new one emphasizes that even though we now have The Voice and The X Factor, "There's only one American Idol," as Ryan Seacrest says, and it's "the show that started it all."

And check out this new promotional photo of Ryan and the judges arm in arm, with smiles on all their faces as if to say, Look at us -- we're the best of friends.

Nominate An Idol with Randy and Carrie

Over the summer, we found out about some new ways that people could audition for American Idol. One of them was called Nominate An Idol, where friends and family of a singer could secretly nominate them. Those who are chosen by the show will be "surprised on location by a film crew and given the chance to advance to the next round of auditions," according to the press release.

And it looks like one of those moments just happened last night, with Randy Jackson surprising Danielle Castleman during a Carrie Underwood concert, and he had her audition for him. Check out the video to see her take on Carrie's "All American Girl" and find out if she'll get to audition in front of the entire judging panel.
