After the 2020 live shows of “American Idol” were forced to go virtual because of the pandemic, now for the first time all-remote auditions will take place across the U.S. 

“Idol Across America” remote auditions will take place with all fifty states and Washington, D.C. able to participate. Each state has specific dates for the remote auditions. Missouri auditions are Aug. 12, the same day as Wisconsin and Louisiana. Illinois auditions are Aug. 28 with Indiana and Minnesota.

Auditions start Aug. 10 with Delaware, Florida and Ohio.

Auditioners will be face-to-face with a show producer, and will receive real-time feedback.
