My niece Vivan is such a talented singer. I am forever grateful that she let my whole family convince her to audition for American Idol. Two years ago we saw several people come to Shreveport to audition for American Idol. Unfortunately, it does not look like we will have the same luck again this year.

The good news is that there will be auditions in Baton Rouge! So if you're down for a quick little car ride with some of the best singers you know, start a carpool group chat and make it happen.

We still have no idea what time you need to be there but, if we were you we would get there EARLY. Warm-up those vocal cords while in line and hopefully you're one the first to get through and on to the next round of auditions.

American Idol Auditions will be held on Sunday, August 25th:

Baton Rouge, LA
Hilton Baton Rouge Capital Center
201 Lafayette St.
Baton Rouge, LA 70801
