The Next Cinderella Story

When the famous music starts, its driving beat brings an adrenaline rush to performers and audiences alike. A star could be born… and you’re about to be a part of the magic!

Whether you audition, take the stage as a performer or just give your support from the audience, join the “judges” from the entertainment industry as you help determine the fate of each singer who braves the stage.

The Dream Ticket

Feel the excitement ripple during the day until the finale, when 5 winners compete for a Dream Ticket.

From the auditions at the American Idol Audition Studio, only 3 participants will be picked to compete at the American Idol Experience. If you’re chosen, hear the audience cheer as you talk to the host and get video pep talks from former TV show winners, including Guests who have gone beyond.

Then, grab that mike and live every moment to the max—it’s your time to shine!

Each Dream Ticket allows an eligible winner to schedule a front-of-the-line audition at an actual regional audition for the American Idol TV show. For those interested in auditioning, this is your chance to take the next step and make your dreams come true!

Remember: To compete for a Dream Ticket, you must first audition for the opportunity at the American Idol Audition Studio.

Watch, Vote, Cheer!

As an important part of the show, you hold the power to discover new talent and make a dream come true.

Just watch the 3 contestants perform, and then listen along as judges give comments and criticisms—much like on American Idol itself! At the end of the show, cast your vote. You could send someone to the next level of competition or help them win a Dream Ticket!
