The audition schedules for key cities in the United States are out! All you aspiring American Idols living in or near Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Denver, and Orlando should start working on their audition numbers as early as now since auditions will be starting by the middle of the month. Auditions are open to both men and women 16-28 years old as of June 12, 2009 who can work in the US.
The American Idol website has specific instructions for the first auditions in Boston:
Wristbands will be distributed from 7:00 AM on Friday, June 12 until 8:00 AM on Sunday, June 14. Auditioners will not be permitted to camp out. Once auditioners obtain their wristbands, they will be asked to return to Gillette Stadium by 5:00 AM on Sunday, June 14.
It is still not sure if Paula Abdul and Kara DioGuardi will be joining Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson for the judges’ round of auditions late in the summer. Both Paula and Kara’s contracts expired in May and they’ve yet to make any announcements about returning to the show for Season 9.
