IT ONLY TAKES ONE DAY TO CHANGE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE

"AMERICAN IDOL" SEASON 10 AUDITIONS BEGIN SATURDAY, JULY 17 IN NASHVILLE, TN

MILWAUKEE, WI; NEW ORLEANS, LA; EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ; AUSTIN, TX; AND SAN FRANCISCO, CA, WILL ALSO HOST AUDITIONS THIS SUMMER

15-YEAR-OLDS ELIGIBLE TO AUDITION FOR FIRST TIME EVER

Before AMERICAN IDOL, Lee DeWyze worked as a paint store clerk in Mt. Prospect, IL. Kris Allen was a college student from Conway, AR. David Cook tended bar in Blue Springs, MO. Chris Daughtry was a service advisor at a car dealership in Greensboro, NC. Carrie Underwood lived on a farm in Checotah, OK. Jennifer Hudson was a cruise ship performer from Chicago, IL. Kelly Clarkson was a waitress from Dallas, TX. One audition changed the rest of their lives.

Once again, aspiring singers will have the incredible opportunity to audition in cities across the country to become the next AMERICAN IDOL as the No. 1 show on television begins auditions for its milestone 10th season on Saturday, July 17 in Nashville, TN. The search for the next singing superstar will continue in Milwaukee, WI, on Wednesday, July 21; New Orleans, LA, on Monday, July 26; East Rutherford, NJ, on Tuesday, Aug. 3; Austin, TX, on Wednesday, Aug. 11; and San Francisco, CA, on Thursday, Aug. 19.

In celebration of the momentous 10th anniversary and in an effort to continue to find the best undiscovered talent in the nation, AMERICAN IDOL is expanding the eligibility age range for the first time ever to include hopefuls from 15 to 28 years old. (The previous minimum age requirement was 16.)

"A lot of young, talented people are now seeking careers and representation before they turn 16," said Cecile Frot-Coutaz, executive producer of AMERICAN IDOL. "Lowering the age limit allows us to tap into this talent pool."
