American Idol Live Virtual Auditions Are Open This Week For Texas Residents

If you meet the Eligibility Requirements, you can audition for Season 6 in a variety of ways, including posting a Social Media Audition Video to your preferred platform (i.e., Instagram, Facebook, TikTok or Twitter), uploading an audition video to the American Idol Online Audition portal or virtually attending one of their “Idol Across America” video chat, virtual auditions via Zoom.

You must be 15 or older as of September 15, 2022 to audition.

So if you want to attend one of the "virtual auditions", you will need to get signed up and reserve your time slot. CLICK HERE to reserve your TEXAS audition time, auditions will be held from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM CST according to their FAQ's but they are subject to change. Remember that you will need a computer, phone or tablet with an internet connection capable of running the Zoom software.
