posted in: Mississippi News | 0

Mississippians will have a chance to audition for the nineteenth season of the hit show,American Idol, this upcoming Wednesday, August 26.

Just like the tail end of season 18, all auditions will be hosted virtually due to concerns from the coronavirus, but according to one of the shows producers, the virtual auditions make the process easier for contestants all around.

Its a whole new experience, but its super easy to audition, American Idol producer Melissa Elfar said. Its very seamless. Its very easy. Now is the time if you have ever thought about it or you have already auditioned or you were always nervous or you couldnt make the drive.

Through the shows recently implemented Idol Across America program, every state has a specific date set aside for its citizens to try their cards at becoming the next American Idol, but dont worry if youre not able to try out this Wednesday.

If for some reason, you cannot make it on Wednesday, its not a problem, Elfar continued. I always tell people to pick your next favorite state and register to audition during that states time. We just dont want people to think that if they cant make it during their states date that they cannot audition.

As for whether season 19, which is set to begin in the spring of 2021, will be live and in-person or produced remotely, Elfar and the rest of the American Idol crew are taking it one day at a time.

Right now, our primary focus is just really finding that next American Idol and that next superstar, she said with a sense of optimism.

Will the next winner of American Idol be from Mississippi? Well have to just wait and see.

The last time the Magnolia State took the Idol scene by storm was in 2016 when Trent Harmon and LaPorsha Renaeboth native to Mississippiwere the fifteenth season’s final two contestants with Harmon being named the eventual winner.
