American Idol Season 20 NFT Cards, Trading, and Contest Details

Fans who buy an American Idol NFT Card Pack for $99 will receive a random contestant NFT card of, one of the top 14 contestants. For five weeks, as the contestants start getting eliminated from the competition, NFT collectors who own the required number of contestant cards will receive unique rewards.

For the season’s finale, collectors with the NFT of the winner will be cited with their own exclusive Winner’s Ticket to Hollywood NFT, which can be redeemed for a physical ticket to Hollywood and will be shipped to their home. It’s a new way of monetizing a show that for the most part depends on advertising around its shows for generating revenue.

However, NFTs are a flashpoint, as many have condemned that NFTs don’t have real value or are basically just a part of a scammy, environmentally damaging, or low-quality content hellhole. But companies are experimenting with NFTs, which establish the uniqueness of digital items, as a new way to get fans involved in the NFT communities. NFTs have been searching for a mass audience, and it will be intriguing to see how die-hard American Idol fans will react to this decision.

During the first week of rewards i.e. on April 25, collectors with an NFT of only one of the remaining contenders will win an American Idol 20th Anniversary Animated Logo NFT. During week two, collectors with NFTs of two remaining contestants will earn 300 $TDROP, which will be then deposited into their ThetaDrop account.

Mitch Liu, CEO of Theta Labs, said in a statement that When you’re teaming up with internationally-renowned entertainment brands, it doesn’t get much bigger than American Idol.

Further, the CEO emphasized that With their Theta-powered real-time predictive NFTs, fans will be able to go beyond voting for the contestants and become a judge themselves and along the way celebrate with their favorites and keep collecting rewards as they move through each qualifying round to the finals.

In addition, collectors that hold four contestants’ NFTs of competitors remaining in the competition will earn VIP Bronze benefits for their ThetaDrop account in the third week of the competition.

Theta Network is one of the top blockchains for media and entertainment. American Idol is the latest partner in a long line-up of top-tier partners. Theta has previously teamed up on NFTs with American Idol judge and American pop icon Katy Perry,  soulstress Dionne Warwick,  the Samsung Galaxy S22 flagship launch, World Poker Tour; and America’s longest-running TV game show ‘The Price is Right”, and with many other leading brands.

Megan Michaels Wolflick, the series’ showrunner, said that in American Idol, they are constantly challenging themselves to be at the forefront of innovation. adding further she said, that with interactive NFT trading cards celebrating our 20th season, fans will be able to engage themselves even more in the Idol experience, as they collect their favorite contestants’ cards and follow their progress throughout the competition.
