Is the next American Idol here in Colorado? American Idol auditions travel to Denver in August.

It may look different and the players may have changed, but the basic idea is the same. Scouring the country for the best of the best, American Idol returns to television.

Overall, 19 cities will hold open auditions. Luckily, Denver is one of those. August 26 (venue NOT listed) could the day that changes your life, just like it did for Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and of course, Nick Fradiani. OK, that last one isn't a good example, but why not take a shot?

Newly signed on judge mega pop star Katy Perry hit social media with the announcement yesterday. It also includes instructions on how to submit your audition videos online or with #TheNextIdol.
