Are you the next American Idol? Here's your chance to audition in Kansas City!

Ryan Seacrest, Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan


Auditions will be held Sunday, September 9th at Barney Allis Plaza, 301 W 13th Street, Kansas City, Missouri. Celebrity judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan aren't there for the initial rounds. Instead, contestants will perform for producers and then possibly, the executive producer. They decide who moves on from Kansas City. If they make the cut, they will continue their journey to the next round, which may be in front of the American Idol judges. 

If you plan to attend the auditions, please carefully read the eligibility requirements and process information available online.​​
