ABC has unveiled the first "American Idol" season 16 trailer. Get your first look at the revamped singing competition by playing the video above.

The trailer shows the "American Idol" tour bus on its way through the country and snapshots of various contestants in their daily lives, before providing clips of hopefuls auditioning in front of new judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. There's some laughter, there are more than a few tears, and there's even a scene where Perry, Bryan and Richie show off their dance moves during one country artist's audition.

As is common for singing competition promos, the trailer leaves audiences guessing as to exactly how many of the people depicted actually made it onto the show. The only known "Idol" contestant is Britney Holmes, who won a second chance fan vote during the American Music Awards after an initially unsuccessful audition.

But what is clear is the chemistry between Perry, Bryan and Richie as the trailer provides the first footage of them behind the "American Idol" judges table. They're playful with each other and welcoming to each of the contestants. Plus, the trailer hits all the right notes to build excitement for the series, whether it's showing someone excitedly waving their "Golden Ticket" to Hollywood Week or several people moved to tears.

Plus, don't miss the artist who FaceTimes his grandmother along with the judges and the one who gets an unexpected kiss from Katy Perry!

ABC also announced this week that "American Idol" season 16 will compete directly with "The Voice" season 14 on NBC. And based on this trailer, "Idol" could give "The Voice" some stiff competition.

Fans can also watch one of the new "Idol" judges live before the season premieres, as well as in Europe during the season. Below are Katy Perry's upcoming tour dates, with tickets on sale now through AXS:
