It's been 15 years since American Idol went on air for the very first time, and ever since then it was a show that dominated television.  Do you think you're the next American Idol??  Here's the closest auditions!

I remember growing up watching Idol, and it's already been confirmed that Katy Perry will be a judge on this season, and Luke Bryan just miiiiiiiiight be in a judges chair as well!

American Idol has been very good to country music artists, thanks to the show we have artists like Carrie Underwood, Scotty McCreary, Lauren Alaina, Kellie Pickler, and many more have been introduced to the country music industry thanks to Idol!

But if you think you have what it takes to be the next American Idol, here's the closest auditions!  I tried to keep it within a 6ish hour radius.

  • August 22: Atlanta, GA
  • August 30: Louisville, KY
  • September 11: Chicago, IL
