American Idol is coming back, and they will be coming to Orlando for open call auditions on Thursday, August 17.
American Idol will kick off its highly anticipated open auditions at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World. Due to venue capacity, Disney Springs can accommodate a total of 4,000 audition participants.
All singers must be at least 15 years old to audition. The auditions will begin at 8 a.m. and will take place outdoors, therefore it’s advised to bring water, sunscreen, and a hat.
Idol-winners Jordin Sparks, Kris Allen, and Ruben Studdard will make a special appearance and greet lucky audition participants during the kickoff celebration of the search for America’s next superstar.
If you can’t make the open call, you might still have a shot. I’m told Central Florida hopefuls will still have the chance to become a part of Idol history by auditioning via the American Idol pop-up audition kiosk, which will be located at Disney Springs from August 18 through September 15. During regular Disney Springs operating hours, visitors can create and submit their very own audition video at the kiosk.
This reboot of American Idol will return to television next year on ABC after airing on Fox for 15 years. Ryan Seacrest will be back to host, but so far, Katy Perry is the only judge confirmed.
