Are you the next “American Idol”?
Auditions for ABC’s popular reality competition return this summer to cities across the country — including one Central Coast spot.
“American Idol” will hold auditions in Santa Barbara on Aug. 23.
It’s one of two California cities where would-be contestants can audition in person for a spot in the show’s new season. Auditions for “American Idol” will be held in San Jose on Sept. 6.
To apply to become America’s “next singing superstar,” you must be a legal U.S. citizen or permanent U.S. resident between 15 and 28 years old, according to the “American Idol” website.
You can also audition online.
