    REQUIREMENTS

    You must be able to prove at the time of your audition, if any, that:

    You are a legal U.S. citizen or a permanent U.S. resident who is eligible to work full-time in the United States; and

    You are 16 to 28 years old on August 6, 2006 (which means you must be born on or between August 7, 1977, and August 6, 1990). If you were born before or after this window, you are not eligible to participate this season.

    You are ineligible to participate if you progressed in any previous season of "American Idol" to any of the following levels:

    Season 1 – top 30 contestants

    Season 2 – top 32 contestants

    Season 3 – top 32 contestants

    Season 4 – top 44 contestants

    Season 5 – top 44 contestants

    If you are asked to audition for the semi-final rounds of the competition in the Los Angeles, California, area, you MUST be able to demonstrate (before departing for Los Angeles) that you do not have any of the following:

    a contract for talent representation (for example, a talent agent or manager);

    a music recording contract;

    an acting and/or modeling contract;

    a merchandising agreement; or,

    any other contractual arrangement that would prohibit you from entering into an exclusive management contract, recording contract, talent contract, acting contract and/or merchandising contract.

    You are ineligible if you, or any member of your immediate family and/or anyone living in your household, is an employee, officer, director, agent and/or representative of Fox Broadcasting Company, American Idol Productions, Inc., FremantleMedia North America, Inc., 19 TV Limited., CKX, Inc., Cingular, Telescope, Coca-Cola, the Ford Motor Company, Sony/BMG, production personnel for the television program, participating television stations, advertising agencies, corporate sponsors or any person or entity connected with the production, administration or judging of the auditions, or any of the parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents or representatives of any of the foregoing entities.

If your birth certificate was not issued in the United States, you must also bring proof of citizenship and/or permanent U.S. residency.

    Release: Print out and sign the release form provided at www.americanidol.com. These release forms will only be available in a limited supply at the audition venues, so please bring the completed form with you.

    Under 18: If you are under 18 years of age, you must be accompanied by your parent or legal guardian. If you are accompanied by a legal guardian (as opposed to a parent), your legal guardian must bring proof of guardianship or you will not be able to audition. In addition, your parent or legal guardian must have the authority to sign documents on your behalf, including the release form on the website (which should be signed by you and your parent and/or legal guardian, as indicated on the form).

    What to Wear to the Auditions: Please do not wear any clothing items that reveal any tattoos, that have designer names, sports teams, or any other logos or brand names, or bearing the name or likeness of a celebrity, living or dead. If you do wear such clothing, you may be required to remove it or turn it inside out or put on additional clothing to cover it.

    What to Sing at the Auditions: Be prepared to sing a cappella (without music) a song of your choice. If you are called back for the first recall, you may be asked to sing two songs a cappella, one of which may be from a list that will be provided to you by the producer at that time. The other song, if requested by producer, may be a song of your choice. All rules and procedures are subject to change at producer's sole and absolute discretion.

    Rules In Line: You MUST be in line by 8:00 a.m. on the actual audition day in your city. Even if you are in line by 8:00 a.m., there is no guarantee that you will be seen for an audition. However, keep in mind that you may not be able to start lining up until after 6:00 a.m., depending on the location of the audition, so continue to check our website at www.americanidol.com for the most up-to-date audition schedule and line-up information. Producers reserve the right to audition people out of order of their place in line. Due to space limitations, ONLY ONE FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER in addition to the person being auditioned will be admitted into the venue in each city where auditions are taking place. PLEASE BE COURTEOUS TO OTHER PEOPLE IN LINE. DO NOT CUT IN LINE. IF WE DISCOVER THAT YOU HAVE CUT IN FRONT OF ANOTHER PERSON IN LINE, YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM THE AUDITION PROCESS. Also, you may not hold a place in line for another person for an extended period of time. Producers reserve the right to audition people out of order of their place in line.

    Wristbands: You will be able to start the wristband and ticketing process two days before the actual audition day in most cities – please keep checking the website (www.americanidol.com) for specific information pertaining to the venue where you plan to audition. It is currently anticipated that wristbands, or some other form of identification, will be handed out to those people chosen by the producers to continue in the audition process. IF YOU RECEIVE A WRISTBAND FROM THE PRODUCERS, YOU MUST NOT GIVE THE WRISTBAND TO ANOTHER PERSON. YOU ALSO MUST NOT ACCEPT A WRISTBAND FROM ANYONE OTHER THAN THE PRODUCTION STAFF AND YOU MUST NOT REMOVE YOUR WRISTBAND UNTIL YOU ARE TOLD TO DO SO BY PRODUCER. IF IT IS FOUND THAT YOU RECEIVED YOUR WRISTBAND FROM SOMEONE OTHER THAN THE PRODUCTION STAFF, OR THAT YOUR WRISTBAND HAS BEEN TAMPERED WITH IN ANY MANNER, YOU WILL BE IMMEDIATELY DISQUALIFIED FROM THE AUDITION PROCESS.

    Paperwork: In order to participate in the auditions, you will be required to fill out, sign and agree to all of the terms and conditions of producer's required forms. Some of the forms will be available on our website at www.americanidol.com. Your family and/or guests should also be prepared to sign releases concerning the possible taping and/or recording of their name, likeness, voice, conversation, etc. If you advance in the competition, you will be required by the producer to fill out, sign and agree to all of the terms and conditions of additional forms, including a talent management contract, recording contract and/or merchandising contract. You (and your parents and/or legal guardians in the case of contestants under 18 years of age) may also be subject to a thorough background investigation and other examinations, at producer's discretion. If you are under 18 years of age, both you and your parent or legal guardian must sign each of the forms and cooperate in having the forms court approved, if and when requested by producer. ALL FORMS MUST BE FILLED OUT COMPLETELY AND TRUTHFULLY. IF YOU FAIL TO COMPLETE ANY FORM, GIVE ANY FALSE INFORMATION, OR FAIL TO REVEAL ANY PERTINENT INFORMATION, YOU MAY BE DISQUALIFIED FROM THE AUDITION PROCESS.

    Disqualifications: We reserve the right to disqualify and/or exclude, in our sole and absolute discretion, any individual from any of the auditions for any reason or for no reason at all, including without limitation, violation of any portion of these rules, or tampering with the entry process or the audition process.

    I think you have to be at least 16 by August. Audition dates and places are usually posted after the season is over (like in June or early July at the latest).

    i think of you will possibly be able to desire to be a minimum of sixteen years previous and not older than 28 on the time of your audition. As for the subsequent auditions, i might think of they'll initiate previous due this summer time or fall. good success!
