American Idol auditions for season 15 kicked off in July across the country with mass events in Denver, Savannah, Philadelphia, Little Rock, and San Francisco. The American Idol season 15 audition bus also toured through other major cities and small towns across the U.S.
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.

Would love to audition, sadly I can’t as I’m Canadian 🙁
how we can get there
That wat i wanted to know
Don’t they have Canadian idol wasn’t that how Carly Rae Jepsen got her start
Was canceled like 6 years ago :/
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.
Why not SEATTLE or PORTLAND???? :o(

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!

I have watched the show every since I was a kid but always was afraid of being to late for auditions because its in another state and also turned down or told to try next year. I think many would love if you came to Las Vegas 🙂
Hi everyone I am sure lots of people have lots of talent and I can’t wait to be 16 and I hope everyone has a chance to show thier talent. I am sure you are all amazing! I have no support in my family my dad says I can’t be a singer b/c very good people make it, my sis just tells me to shut up and my 2 bros tease me all the time. I sing to myself and hope my mom will be proud of me
