‘American Idol’ Judges Encourage Virtual Auditions in Goofy Video
Reading Time: 2 minutes
The American Idol judges really want you to audition for Season 20 of the show, as evidenced by the silly video they just put out. It features Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie encouraging fans to try out.
Specifically, the judges are highlighting the fact that you can audition virtually from anywhere. The new video gives us a glimpse into the stars’ homes and everyday life. Perry’s clips are especially funny.
‘American Idol’ Judges Encourage Fans to Audition
The judges talk to fans from various locations, with Bryan sitting in his car, Richie trimming the hedges outside his house, and Perry doing laundry. At one point, Bryan even peeks his head out of the shower, and Richie shoots a basketball.
But the silliest clip by far involves Perry leaning over her kitchen counter and resting her head between slices of bread. Really, did you expect anything less from the goofiest judge? As Richie points out, last season’s winner Chayce Beckham auditioned for the show on his lunch break.
Host Ryan Seacrest also makes a quick appearance in the video, standing by his refrigerator and sharing that fans can start the audition process on the show’s website. Perry reminds fans to “keep it clean,” because you’ll be auditioning for producers.
How to Audition for Season 20 of the Show
If you want to try out for the upcoming new season of American Idol, you can either submit a video audition or sign up for a virtual audition in front of producers. You can audition both ways if you’d prefer.
Virtual auditions will run through August and into September, while video submissions will be accepted until October 15. To reserve an audition time with producers, go to the audition page and choose the state you’ll be auditioning in.
It was recently confirmed that all three American Idol judges will be returning to the table for the upcoming 20th season of the show. This will be their fifth season together finding new singing talent on ABC. A premiere date hasn’t been set, be we expect the show will return in early 2022.
