The X Factor American Idol rivalry is heating up. Simon Cowell’s new talent competition hasn’t even reached its live shows yet and former colleague Ryan Seacrest has decided to tease fans with the first promo from Season 11.

According to RyanSeacrest.com, Idol has wrapped its Season 11 auditions in St. Louis, Portland, San Diego, Pittsburgh, Charleston, Denver, Houston and East Rutherford.

To hype the viewers up for the full 60-second video set to air during Sunday’s World Series Game on Fox, the site has posted the first half of the commercial.

It shows host Seacrest and returning judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson taking to the streets with a little hop in their step as fans gather behind them. And I have to say they’re looking pretty good.

Season 11 kicks off on Jan. 22 after the NFC Championship game on Fox.
