  1. HI i have loved to sing since i was little its my passion i am only 16 but every body has told i have a beautiful voice and i no that i is a 1in a million chance but i sure as hell want to be that one
    Sincerely , Nachen Seymore

    • be sure my friend, its very possible 4 every one to tell u false info coz they know u only want to hear tha good side of it .., good luck tho

  2. are there really only going to be one day of auditions for each of those places, or is that just the start date?

    • I believe there will really only be one audition day for each location. Those who make it through will return at a later date to go before the judges. The show makes it seem like this is all in one day, but it's not.

  3. I am 27 years old and i have an amazing voice, i have always been a little scared to sing in front of people, i have been singing lately in front of people to try to fix my problem, and i realized i just have to do it! When you see me simon which i hope i get that far, be easy on me about my age, if i went through life and never tried i would regret it, hope to make it where at least people know my name! Mandy Emerick

  4. I have a passion to entertain people in general. And i will do whatever it takes to make it to the top some day. I might be small, but i believe with God anything is possible…and of course a little attitude and guts :))

    • You sound REALLY SERIOUS about this man. I consider you ALREADY to be one of the MORE considerable individuals when it comes to this very thing. It's hard to tell, or even know at this point, especially even knowing that I don't even know who you or anyone else is, or can even see you or hear you for that matter, but you seem like someone who's got your head on straight and that maybe God is leading you in the right direction :). I hope things go well for you man. GIVE IT EVERYTHING you got :). ANd then GIVE it SOME MORE. ONLY FROM JESUS :). HE's GOT IT ALL :).

  34. Hi, my name is Brooklyn, but my family and friends call me Brook and I am 15 until January 2011. All I have ever wanted to do is sing. I really want to try out for American Idol, but it's going to be really hard to build up the courage to go. Since I told my bestfriend that I want to try out she has told everybody that I am going, but I don't even know if I can do it…

  35. I really want to try out…but I'm not able to travel.I wish American Idol would come to Pittsburgh PA.That would give me a shot. oh well…not going to lose any sleep over it. Good luck to all those who do tryout.

  36. Hi, I'm Darya. I'm a russian young girl. i have been singing since 8 and i wanna try myself in the audition, maybe, next year. Could you please appreaciate my record and tell me if i'm worth to try it? and do foreigners have a chance to participate?
    here's a link


    yours faithfully
    Darya

  37. I'm a 21 year old female and i been singing since i been like 11 or 12, but i never liked too sing in front of people not even my family, cause i did not want my feelings to get hurt, now when i sing not to be singing fa real people here me and ask can i sing one of there favorite songs, i just say i cant sing fa real and they say yes you can i just start laughing. I have had people over hear me singing in stores and they say you need to go on American idol and i just start laughing being shy but i will sing for a crowd or somebody that will let me know how i really sound.I think i can really sing, even if i did wanna be on American idol i don't have the funds to make it to an audition so i will be watching too see if anybody from Toledo Ohio be there, GOOD LUCK IDOLS…….

  38. YO. How ya'll doing? It's good to hear from ya'll on all your comments and threads and posts for who you are and where your from about American Idol and everything. It's good to hear that there are SO MANY insightful and aspiring individuals who are LOOKING FORWARD to the American Idol Auditions. I don't want to be cocky and prideful, but if I do audition for American Idol, I don't plan on losing. I guess that's probably the same for everyone else as well. I BELIEVE God gave me the skills, talents, vocals, GRACE and ABILITY to not only TEAR DOWN EVERY idol, but to ALSO build up the economy of AMerica and the infrastructure of music itself by the notes and melodies and songs that come from my very vocal chords. If you Believe that you are the NEXT "American Idol," that is VERY LOVELY and nice of you to think such things, but the REALITY is that GOD will tear down EVERY idol, and that He will be EXALTED by ALL men's praises. I choose to use my vocal chords to lift up the name of YAHWEH and JESUS CHRIST the LORD. I also choose to use my vocal chords to sing of the LOVE that God has for ALL of us when He poured out His life and even in His death on the cross of Calvary. That is the message I preach. That is what I sing of: His LOVE for you and me and ALL mankind. I ALSO sing of HIS LOVE for you and me, and my LOVE for you, and a woman, and whoever else is becom(ing) involved to be LOVEd. The reality is, should the show continue, that someone will win. If I am to audition, I plan to win, and to tear down the "idols," but to BUILD UP the musicians, and the history and culture of music itself: The way it is made, developed, the way it changes and influences people's lives, to REVOLUTIONIZE music itself. To bring people, places and things from darkness to light, from ashes to beauty, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. This is the BEAUTY and LOVE of JESUS CHRIST the LORD and SAVIOUR of the world, and the praises of the King that should be declared over EVERYONE. May God be EXALTED and EVERY hill made a plain. PRAISE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, FOREVER AND EVER.AMEN. LET IT BE!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  52. Hi everyone, I'm 16 years old and I've been singing since I was about 3. I love singing with everything within me and I hope and pray that I win because I really want to make music that will touch people's hearts and souls and reach out to those without a voice. I write my own songs and sing a LOT! I just hope I make it. Whether or not I can sing is merely a matter of opinion but either way, like me or hate me, I do mean what I say and I am obsessed with singling and music in general. I hope and pray that everyones deepest dreams and passions come true and wish all of you the blessings of the world and inner peace.

    God is love,
    Nana Cantar

  59. my name is ashley rambo.. I am 23 and will be auditioning for american idol this year… I am sooo nervous but I have to try it.. Its been a dream of mine my whole life. So here goes 🙂

  60. hey! I am 26 yrs old! Have been passionately singing since i was 3 yrs old in churches and in revivals all around the country. Singing is my life and i couldn't wake up each day without singing a song. i can sing anything from gospel to country to pop! I taught myself how to sing harmony at nine yrs old. I have missed this tryouts for nashville,,which i am devistated about but i will be goin to the next ones!! Watch out America because I AM THE NEXT AMERICAN IDOL!! LOVE YOU AMERICA!

  61. Well, I'm 16. I love to sing and practice all the time. I sing R&B, slow songs, and some country. Or anything with a pop kind of sound. I'll sing it. I believe I am a very good singer. And I want to tryout. My thing is just to get on the show, have fun. Even if I don't pass to any other round. I would be happy just to give it a try. 🙂

  62. Hey, Im Lindsay. I love to sing and have been singing since I was a little girl. I will sing anywhere including the shower. I love to sing anything that fits my ability and I can sing high pitched music. I dont care how far I make it as long as I can show the world how much I love to sing. This would be a blessing if I was the next runner up for being on American Idol.

  63. its been my dream to audition for american idol since the begining of the show, and ive been singing since i can remeber. i can sing every type of music, but my favorite is rock and pop, and i have a wide range in my voice(although i somtimes mess up when it comes to the high pitched notes). when i found out about how they lowerd the age to 15, i thought i would be able to audition this year(im 14 and my b-day is oct. 12) but then i saw when i saw when the auditions are, i cant rly audition now. but now that gives me time to get ready for the 2012 auditions, and although im gonna have to travel to some other state maybe for the auditions( im from austin tx. i dont think there gonna come back next auditioning season for 2012) im willing to do all that to make my dream come true, to be a singer and show off my talent. and for this year, ill just be wishing good luck to my private voice lessons teacher whos gonna be auditioning here texas.

  64. My grandaughter D. Lloyd drove all the way to New Orleans to audition and she can sing,but was told she wasn't what they were looking for.I American Idol has turned into a show that isn't about talent it's about clowning anything to get ratings like drama profanity I was a true fan until I saw all these things go on. Get back to the basic of what the show used to be about.I've seen some good talent get away everyone doesn't have the funds to travel around to get the exposure they need.Get back to the old. American Idol Thank you

  65. I'm going to be auditioning for American Idol, but I really only have one question: WHAT TIME DO THE AUDITIONS START? and Do I have to fill anything out online? or just at the audition area?

  66. I would love to audition but i cant make any of the cities. I wish Idol would come back to DC or Maryland.

  67. my name is april, im 20 years old and live in auburn ca. I've been singing since i can remember. I've wanted to try out for YEARS now, but there have been some snags along the way. literally CANNOT wait to have my chance :] oh yay. fingers crossed!!!

  68. My name is DeLaney,and I am 15. I know a lot of people get on here and really want to be famouse and stuff. I am not a fraud. I love to sing, and I have sang since I first could talk. I've competed in Fine Arts in Indianappolis Indiana when I was in 6th grade. My voice has matured very well since then, and I praise God in song with my voice. I have sang in plays at my school, and also in what we call show choir. I've watched American Idol the past 2years, and being on that stage is one of my BIGGEST dreams! I want to audition so bad, but my family really don't have to money to get me to a state where there are auditions. I hope to audition one day. When you see the name DeLaney Nichole Wright, you know she will be singing a christian song or something upliftin in soul. My favorite song is The Climb by Miley Cyrus. That song explains my dream and how hard it is to reach it. Well I hope you know how much I love to sing now. I hope everyone has a nice day and I wish whoever wins this year or even gets the chance to audition has the best of luck and I will be praying for you.

    Sincerely, DeLaney Nichole Wright

    15yrs old =)

  69. Howdy… ok, I have to be truthful, I only watched American Idol for like the first 2 seasons, then after that I only watched like the horrible auditions, so I'm not really a huge fan. I do have a question for anyone though… Is there an age limit to try-out? I'm 29, a full-time college student (Pediatric Psychology), and never had any intentions of ever trying out for the show. That is until recently when my mother with tears in her eyes told me, I was meant to be on this show. I've always enjoyed singing… I've done the National Anthem for The Atlanta Braves at Turner field (when I lived in the ATL) I sing at our local rodeos, I've done pageants (when I was younger), I've done parades…. even a couple of weddings. I consider myself good, not great… With the fall semester coming up real soon, I don't have to much time to dedicate to this….. so I guess my other question would be.. assuming that I'm not to old to try-out…. How time consuming would it be if I did manage to get on the show?…… Thanks…. Andrea 🙂

  70. hiiii, im 14years old & will be turning 15 in january but will they still let me audition becuz ill be 15 in the 2011 american idol, i relle wanna adution all my friends are telling me AMERICAN IDOL baby lol.. sooo can anyone pleaseee answer my question it would relle help me(:

  71. Hi, I don't share my name, but I'm 13 and my friends say I have a major talent for singing and their mouths drop open every time I do. Yes, I have a little bit of stage fright, but I know I can get past it.

    I can sing like Miley Cyrus music way good and I'm really good at country, I live in Idaho and want to know if there are any tryouts in Idaho? Thanks I really am hoping to do this, I have singing jeans in my family, yes, I do, and I REALLY WANT TO DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. Well, I sure wish they would change the age of American Idol from 16 to 55. That would be so awesome if they could do it! I've wanted to be on American Idol since it started but I've always been too old…..Good luck to all you devoted singers out there old enough to sing for Randy and the rest of the judges.

  88. Hey everyone that is reading!!

  89. Theres no doubt that auditioning for American Idol is always on my mind.. im 17 and very excited for the audtions in 2011 because thats when i plan on auditoning.. i will be the 2012 American Idol

  90. I'm a little confused on this and would appreciate some help here. I'm 14 and i turn 15 on August 24th. Would they still let me audition?

  91. i really want to try out this year i know i have a good voice but idk how far i will make it but im going to hope for the best 🙂

  92. Guys Look For My Name In The Auditions!! Im 15 And Turning 16 On The 15th Of August But Going To The Auditions In Austin Tx!! I Am An AMAZING Singer(: Soo Hopefully I Get Voted For!!(: Thankss

  93. i was told i have a good voice and that i should try out on american idol so im gonna try out and show evryone that i kud do it

  94. My names victoria and ive been singing just about since i was able to talk. My dream is to someday be discovered and i think auditioning for american idol is the perfect way to at least get started. I LOVE american idol. I watch it all the time with my mom, and i always say to her, that's gonna be me someday. I've been performing since I could walk. I love entertaining a crowd, and I believe that this will give me a boost to get somewhere. GO AMERICAN IDOL!

  95. HELLO AMERICAN IDOL1 i just want to say i am very happy that the show is still going strong! BUT i am very upset about something. ever since i was a little girl, when ruben, clay aken, and all the other great people who where on american idol came out to represent themselves, it inspired me that as soon as i became of age to audition and my mother had enough money to bring me i would take it! BUT NOW i live in Florida, and you guys aren't coming to florida anymore! why?! please! im just a 17 year old girl who wants to proove myself on american idol! please comew back to florida for the 2011 auditions! PLEASE!

  96. As far as I can remember, singing is the one thing I could always count on. I've not going to sit and brag on how well I can sing and say that I will make it, because there is a very big possibility that I'll be considered nothing but a country singer want to be. I am 17, and I have a dream. This has always been my dream. Singing is my way of living. As a Christian, I have days where I feel like a fish out of water. I'm different. I dont cuss, drink, or do drugs, simply because I know it is wrong. So, when I come home and when I'm feeling completely pathetic and helpless, I go to my corner and listen to music and sing along. But now, after another hard day at school, I am determined to get myself out there. I am somebody, and I do have talents. I'm going to prove myself and with God at my side, anything is possible. American Idol, here I come. And nothing will stop me.

  97. So I really want to try out for American Idol but I am so scared to sing in front of people. I am a junior in high school so I really need to decide what I want and what is most important to me. I really love singing though and hopefully one day I will be able to sing in front of people without being so nervous.

  98. Oh Kaelin I understand u!!!! I'm arfaid of it too!!very much! But I think we should try! I love to sing very much too, we must decided what is important for us!!!)))))

  99. Thank you so much Bina! I think I am going to audition :-). I wish you the best of luck on your audition!!

  100. I'm trying out next year o 3o~ I've known I was going to try out for american idol since I was in 6th grade so I'm pretty excited my chance will be coming soon >w:]

  108. Hey i'm lauren, i'm 13… I think i have what it takes. i didn't learn to sing, it just came to me. I grew up with a family musically gifted. We all have our specialties. I sing my heart out.. i do acoustic shows around my hometown with friends. You'll be shocked.

  109. Am Katrina Southard. I want to be called Kat. I am 16 years old and will be 17 when I will be auditioning. I am a foster kid from the age of 10 and has musicail talents to share with the world. I am very bright and want to shine for others so they can suceed in life. I sing, I do plays, and I play the flute. Soon enough I will learn how to play the bass clarinet and play the piano. So I want to be able to share my glarious talent with everyone who thinks that their not musical. I also want to be able to be a role model and be able to help others. This will be a golden oppurtunity share and give back to the world.

  110. Soo, question, I want to sign up for American Idol next year, like, for 2012…can anyone give me info about that? Thanks 🙂

  111. I wish American Idol did auditions farther north. All of the real talent in the north and east coast are overlooked EVERY year because AI doesn't come north enough. Like, I live in MA, but last year I didn't make the age limitations. Therefor, even though it was closer, it sucked because I couldn't audition anyway. But either way, the judge thing made me not want to even audition anymore.. Why can't we have judges that really know what they are talking about… -sigh-

  112. Well i wanna audition but im only 13 so do you HAVE to be 15 because i thought there was a 10 year old on here who auditioned???

  113. hey do you really need to be 15 im 11 and i love american idol i see it every time it comes and i will love if i could be in it i been singing since about 5 or 6 and i think i got the braves to do it

  114. Hi, i just have one question.. at the San Francisco auditions what time do they start and end? Any way i can find out this imformation? Or can someone help me out? please and thank you!! =]

  115. @Ziaire: Sorry, but that was August 2010 for the audition in NJ. Each year they have to do the auditions before the show actually starts. The 2012 season auditions will be held at the end of 2011. Keep checking back at the end of this season for next season's audition dates.

  116. @Randi: Sorry, but the San Fransisco audition already happened several months ago. We'll have next season's audition dates in a few more months so keep checking back.

  117. Get ready America ima audition this year. To allthe people that thought they wereso much better than me.. al i got to say is when i get discovered don't try being my best friend!

  137. I didn't know that they had changed the age limit until the auditions started playing on TV for this season. I heard a rumor that this is the last American Idol season EVER!!! And I really hope that's not true because I turn 16 this summer and that just wouldn't be fair!

  149. Hello, I was wondering if there is anyway to be emailed with information on how to sign up for auditions for the next season. Do you think you could email me or tell me where I can go to find out more information about auditioning?

    Thanks: Monica Appiano

    • Nope. You'll have to do that work.

      If keeping track of when audition events are for American Idol is too much trouble, then you're probably not cut out for the competition.

      • Ok I am sorry, I was just wondering you don't have to insult me I am able to I was just wanting to know if there was an alternative way of knowing when the auditions were.

        Thank you

  150. well i have wanted to be on american idol for a long time, ive been singing since i was little. and since they have lowered the age to fifteen i see this as a strong oppritunity for me. and i know im good, not to toot my own horn or anything but i good…i wouldnt gert on the television and embarass myself infront of millions of people if i werent. so if i get a chance…even if i dont make it all the way through at least ill have lived a dream and even that will make me extremely happy…once chance to prove to those who have tried to knock me down and myself that i can do it without a doubt

I'm going to pursue my dreams and be the best that I can be. Even if I don't win I will not back down. I will perservere until I achieve my goals.

  216. My name is Tianna and I've been singing since i was a little girl and watched every princess movie with singing in it that Disney had to offer! I love to sing but had the most terrible stage fright until my fiancee cajoled me into singing for him and when I finally did i blew his socks off. Now my soon to be sister-in-law gets on my butt about trying out for American Idol since she watches it religiously. At first I laughed it off until I really thought about it and I've decided I would really like to try out and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about when the next auditions are and where they'll be??

    • No Danielle. As noted on each of the auditions, these events occurred in 2010 for the 2011 season which is going on now.

  217. I have not been singing long at all. I have behind the scenes a little bit and just practiced in my spare time. I am now in chorus and have received one on one help and feel I may be right for this show, and I can't wait for Nashville auditions.
