The very first audition event was held Wednesday, May 13th at the Dolby Theatre. Seems FOX made smart use of the stage while they had it under contract. How cool would it be to have auditioned on the same stage that has crowned winners like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and the next American Idol winner?

Remember you must be between 15-28 years old and if you’re under 18 then you need to audition with a parent or guardian. Check out the audition FAQ and audition information.
