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!

    Just ask her. Tell her you've wanted them for a while, and tell her you're responsible and will clean the piercing everyday.
