Once again, aspiring singers will have the incredible opportunity to audition in cities across the country to become the next American Idol as the No. 1 show on television begins auditions for its milestone 10th season on Saturday, July 17 in Nashville, TN. The search for the next singing superstar will continue in Milwaukee, WI, on Wednesday, July 21; New Orleans, LA, on Monday, July 26; East Rutherford, NJ, on Tuesday, Aug. 3; Austin, TX, on Wednesday, Aug. 11; and San Francisco, CA, on Thursday, Aug. 19.
In celebration of the momentous 10th anniversary and in an effort to continue to find the best undiscovered talent in the nation, American Idol is expanding the eligibility age range for the first time ever to include hopefuls from 15 to 28 years old. (The previous minimum age requirement was 16.)
The New Orleans location is to be announced at a later date.
