American Idol 8 Casting Call

Who will follow in David Cook's footsteps to win the next coveted American Idol title and a major recording contract? The eighth season of American Idol kicks off on July 17, 2008, so start warmin' up your vocal chords!

Audition Checklist

If you're 16 to 28 years old, then you're eligible to audition for AI. But those of you who are under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and bring a completed Guardianship and Medical Authorization for Minors form, which you can download here. As well, bring two pieces of identification, like a birth certificate and a school ID card, and a completed Release form that you can download by clicking here. Be prepared to sing a song of your choice, but it must be a cappella (without music). If Simon, Paula and Randy like you, you'll be called back and asked to sing a song of their choice - good luck!

Auditions are being held in eight cities across the US. And for the first time, American Idol is traveling to the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico to check out the talent there!

    I'm not afraid of my parents. Up to a year ago I was a little afraid of getting punished but not anymore.

    I'm not afraid of them. I'm just afraid when they'll start thinking I'm worthless. But if I had to choose, I guess my mom since I live most of my life with her.

    hey,  don't feel any pressure to come out because ultimately it is your choice. Come out only if you're ready to and feel as if your parents are ready as well.
