Some of our nation's greatest hidden talent exists right in our own neighborhood, which is why this year American Idol XIV is leaving no stone unturned in our efforts to find America's next superstar!
This summer, in addition to our traditional auditions, for the very first time in Idol history, we are conducting auditions in a new setting, state and county fairs! After a very successful run at the San Diego County Fair in June, our second fair stop will be the Illinois State Fair
on August 8 and 9 in Springfield, IL. All eligible fairgoers between the ages of 15 - 28 (See Official Rules
) will have a chance to audition during these two days. There will be no prior registration, and auditions will be held from 10am – 5pm on Friday, August 8 and 10am – 5pm on Saturday, August 9. You are welcome to bring an instrument to audition with, but please be prepared to sing acapella as well.
Do you think you have what it takes to be the next American Idol? Come out and sing for us next week!
