Aspiring singers hoping to become the next Adam Lambert or Jessica Sanchez will get their chance Monday as the “American Idol” television show auditions tour comes to San Diego.
The tryouts for the 15th and final season of the music competition show are set to begin at 8 a.m. at the Waterfront Park outside the County Administration Center. Organizers cautioned prospective contestants to be on time and said people could start lining up by 6 a.m.
The show has two audition buses that will travel to various cities. Both started Thursday — one in Seattle and one in Providence, Rhode Island. They’ll continue through the end of this month.
More formal auditions are scheduled next month at arenas in Denver; Savannah, Georgia; Philadelphia, Little Rock and San Francisco.
Lambert, who attended Mount Carmel High School in Rancho Penasquitos, won Season 8 in 2009 and went on to stardom. Sanchez, who went to Eastlake High School in Chula Vista, was the runner-up three years ago.
Those interested in competing are asked to bring two forms of identification, such as a driver’s license and birth certificate — at least one of which includes a photograph, a completed release form and, for minors, completed and notarized guardianship and medical release forms. Minors must have a parent or guardian over the age of 21 with them for the audition.
Forms are available online at americanidol.com.
