American Idol Auditions 2016: Season 15

The auditions are long over now, but the American Idol 2016 hopefuls still have a long way to go before they make it into the finalists for the final season of the show. Although we won’t get to see what’s happening until the new season premieres on January 6th, the contestants have already gone through Hollywood Week (spoilers!) and the Top 51 have been chosen (more spoilers!).

American Idol judges Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr., and Jennifer Lopez will be returning this season to judge last batch of talented singers to compete for the final American Idol winner title. From what we’ve seen so far on the YouTube channels of the Top 51 contestants, it looks like they’ve done an amazing job of picking great talent at the American Idol auditions this past year.

Check out a behind-the-scenes look inside the American Idol auditions taping process from 2015 with host Ryan Seacrest.

Check back with us once the season starts for complete coverage of the American Idol 2016 auditions from across the country!




  1. I would audition but I don’t want them labeling me as a “heartthrob” and only stay because of the girl votes. Lol I want to win America my way, with my voice and and performances. Not good-looks, or how well I dress. Frankly I wouldn’t be too fond of a bunch of girls freaking out over me. Auditions in San Fransico though is very tempting lol. I might just try out and see what they think of me.

  2. come to utah cause i will blow your mind away meet me in salt lake city find out for your self

  3. I want to audition for my mom who passed away three years ago 2 days before mother’s day. She is my inspiration because when we were homeless in the streets we would sing to help get through it.

I use to just sing to myself in the shower & in my room but when I got with my boyfriend he took the fear out of me & got me to open up to not only him but strangers as well . I’ve sang at karaoke & in the car with my sisters . even have had studio sessions with a producer that was a family friend . I would love to show my dad that he got to accomplish his dreams & watching him has gave me the will power to achieve anything I want if I work hard enough for it . last year there was auditions in Columbus Ohio & barberton Ohio . I was pregnant & missed auditions . I would love to seem them somewhere in Ohio .I don’t mind traveling within state … 2015 is a new year . I’m currently homeless …. But my new years resolution is to at least attempt to get my voice out there & make my dreams come true . not just for me but my daddy as well . Fantasia, Carrie Underwood & Kelly Clarkson are my idols . & I’ve lived a hard life . but I’m more than willing to do anything I can to brighten my future & show the world I have what it takes to over come this horrible bump in my road of life!
