He continued, “All nine will have their 90-second one last performance and then America will save one of them and that will be the fourth wild card finalist.”

Carson said the idea behind the wildcard was sports inspired. “We take a lot of what we do from sports, and the NFL does such a great job at that too. It is fun to watch a wildcard team get a chance in this David and Goliath scenario.”

Pharrell, who will be relying on the wildcard for a chance to win the show, said, “They all deserve to come back, but it is really going to come down to what they do and how they perform and what they give you.”
