Events to take place Aug. 17 at Disney Springs in Lake Buena Vista, Florida
ABC's "American Idol" launches the start of its highly anticipated open auditions at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. The iconic "American Idol" bus will roll into Disney Springs for auditions taking place on Thursday, Aug. 17.
"Idol" winners Jordin Sparks, Kris Allen and Ruben Studdard will make a special appearance and greet lucky audition participants during the kickoff celebration of the search for America's next superstar.
When the bus rolls away at the end of the day, Central Florida hopefuls will still have the chance to become a part of "Idol" history by auditioning via the "American Idol" pop-up audition kiosk, which will be at Disney Springs Friday, Aug. 18, through Friday, Sept. 15. During regular Disney Springs operating hours, visitors can create and submit their very own audition video at the kiosk.
Auditions will simultaneously kick off on the West Coast in Portland, Oregon. Visit www.americanidol.com
