The American Idol is all set to return with Season 12 with a lot of twists and surprises. The audition process is going through some major changes plus this time it will have online auditions as well!
Watch-out aspirants, the competition is going to get tougher!
The show will also have its first-ever “Small Town Audition Bus Tour,” which will visit 10 towns across the country, where fans who missed out on the usual big-city auditions can still have a chance to compete.
Online auditions will kick off August 1 and last through August 14, with aspiring singers allowed to upload videos of themselves singing a capella.
But that’s not all.
The show will also feature a brand-new “Nominate an Idol” program, in which family and friends can secretly submit videos on behalf of shy (but presumably talented) individuals.
“Idol” will then pick its favorites and surprise those nominees, giving them a chance to audition for real.
The new season begins next January.
