When the famous music starts, its driving beat brings an adrenaline rush to performers and audience alike. A star could be born, and you are about to be a part of it! Whether you audition, become a performer or give your support in the audience, join “judges” from the entertainment industry as you determine the fate of singers who brave the stage.
Just like the actual show, the audition process begins with the private a capella performance. Show off your style, intonation, pitch and general preparation as a singer. Make a good first impression and you might move onto the next phase!
Should you move to the second audition, you’ll choose from a list of pop favorites, classics and Disney tunes for a backstage, “karaoke”-style performance. If you’re chosen, this is the song you will sing on stage.
From the auditions, only 3 participants are chosen to compete at each of day’s preliminary shows. The audience cheers you on 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!
The judges give comments and criticisms much like on the real show. Whatever the outcome, you are sure to walk away with an unforgettable experience.
The excitement ripples throughout the day until the finale, when the 5 winners compete for a Dream Ticket. This coveted item allows an eligible winner to schedule a front-of-the-line audition at an actual regional audition for the American Idol TV show. Take the next step toward making your dreams come true!
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. 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!
Guests who are 14 years old or older are eligible to perform. Not everyone is eligible for a Dream Ticket. Please see The American Idol Experience FAQs for more details.
