American Idol 2014 introduces “The Chamber” this season as a new twist on the season 13 audition process. Will the new spin entertain us or just stress out the singers? Who are we kidding? Probably both!

American Idol 'The Chamber'

American Idol host Ryan Seacrest introduced the new addition to the audition saying that no matter how the Hopefuls arrived at their audition, they’d have to “sweat it out in something we call ‘The Chamber.’”

When given the go-ahead the Hopefuls step inside this small waiting room and await a green light letting them know it’s time for them to step on through to the biggest small stage of their lives.

The Chamber is the singers’ last stop before they step before the new American Idol 2014 judges panel. Some use the moment to freak out while others collect their thoughts and get ready for the opportunity.

What do you think of “The Chamber” for Season 13? I think it’s a fun idea and definitely a brief moment of calm that many of them are probably happy to have after a long day of crowds and chaos.
