American Idol accepting MySpace auditions, adds L.A. as final audition city
American Idol 10 is expanding its auditions to the Internet, allowing people to try out for the show via MySpace, in addition to adding one final city.
From Sept. 15 to Oct. 6, 40-second audition videos from people 15 to 28 will be accepted at www.myspace.com/americanidol. Fox says those “will be judged in a similar fashion to the live audition cities and a select number will advance to the next round of callbacks in Los Angeles.”
There’s also now a regular audition in Los Angeles on Sept. 22.
Correction: An earlier version of this post had an innacurate headline, suggesting auditions were being accepted via YouTube. I regret the error, and the assumption that Fox would choose a site people actually still use.
