American Idol' auditions are coming to North Dakota and Montana!

In an effort to uncover the next American Idol star, "Idol Across America" will conduct auditions via Zoom next month.

For the fourth consecutive year, "Idol Across America" will host the nationwide virtual live search for the next big star, complete with audition days in each of the 50 states as well as Washington, D.C.

The first phase of "American Idol" this season allows contestants to sign up for in-person auditions in front of judges to get immediate feedback and a shot at becoming the next "American Idol" as the new season premieres on ABC.

AMERICAN IDOL® Audition Producers want to see singers from all 50 states! Pick your audition day and reserve your time slot for your Live Virtual Audition.

The live virtual nationwide search will give residents in every state and the District of Columbia a chance to show-off their talent.

North Dakotans have their chance to audition on Wednesday, August 9th. Montanans on August 21st. Good luck!

If in-person auditions are more your thing, no worries they will still be doing those kind of auditions too. For more information, and specific audition details, locations, full eligibility requirements, submission forms, terms and conditions, please visit:
