The reboot of American Idol is bringing the star power!

In addition to the talent panel of judges — Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie — the revamped season will be introducing several famous faces. 

In the country music corner, Sugarland and Cam are set to duet with American Idol's contestants! 

In the pop corner, Bebe Rexha will make an appearance. Her song "Meant to Be" with Florida Georgia Line has held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Charts for weeks and given her some country-music credibility. 

Also joining in on the fun are Luis Fonsi, the man behind the hit 'Despacito,' and R&B legend Toni Braxton. 

Radio personality Bobby Bones and former Idol winner Scotty McCreery announced they will serve as mentors to ambitious contestants. 

The new season of American Idol premieres on March 11 with a two-hour special!
