(WKBN) – American Idol’s “Idol Across America” is hosting virtual open call auditions next week.

American Idol will continue to break new, innovative boundaries with custom-built Zoom technology to host Idol Across America, its first-ever virtual nationwide search for the next superstar.

Auditions begin at 11 a.m. in Ohio.

“Zoom is a great platform for us and a great platform for everybody. It really helps people stay connected and you know, when you audition for us, you can be in the comfort of your own home,” said producer Patrick Lynn.

Idol hopefuls will have the chance to audition face-to-face in front of American Idol producers as the Idol Across America visits Ohio Monday.

“Basically, we’ve got about eight to 10 producers from the show and they’re going to see everybody live. It’s actually… it couldn’t be easier because as I tell a lot of people it’s like, well, you no longer have to wait outside in line,” Lynn said.

For information on how to audition, visit American Idol’s website. You must be 15 to 28 years old.
