PHOENIX — Arizona American Idol hopefuls can audition for the ABC singing competition with ease as its virtual Zoom auditions are returning for a fourth year in a row.

The show has an open call for the Zoom auditions in Arizona, which are set for Monday, according to a press release.

This season’s first round of hopefuls can sign up online to audition face-to-face in front of producers and receive real-time feedback for a chance to be crowned the next American Idol.

The live virtual version of Idol Across America is in its fourth year.

All 50 states plus Washington, D.C., will have audition days for the next season, which is the show’s seventh on ABC.
