IDOL™ Announces a New Way to Audition Through Social Media!


For the first time ever, aspiring singers also can submit auditions through the social media platform of their choice. From today through July 1, 2014, auditioners may post a video of themselves singing on their favorite social media sites with the hashtag #TheNextIdol, in hopes of grabbing the attention of AMERICAN IDOL producers. Videos can be posted directly to Facebook, Instagram and Vine. Hopefuls also can post a link to a YouTube video using Twitter, Facebook or Google+. Click here for Social Audition Rules and FAQs.

Additionally, AMERICAN IDOL is bringing back the “Nominate An Idol” program, to find talented singers who may not audition on their own. Family and friends may nominate individuals whom they think could be the next AMERICAN IDOL right here. Individuals can nominate their friends or family by submitting the appropriate forms and video or URL of their “nominee” singing solo and a cappella. Chosen candidates may be surprised on location by a film crew and given the chance to advance to the next round of auditions.
