"There's going to be some new elements added in to season 5 that I can't tell you yet," he told Entertainment Weekly.

"I want to tell you one, because it's so exciting, but I can't yet because we're just defining it a little bit more. For casting, just so you know, there's going to be a couple of unbelievable surprises that we've never done before. Unbelievable.

"[In season 4], we had some incredible singers. The profiles of these singers were better than any season before and that bar is high, and we're trying to surpass that bar for season 5 as well."
