'American Idol' Adds One More Audition City

To accommodate the growing interest to be the next "", the producers of the FOX series have added one more audition date. In a press release on Thursday, September 2, the show announced Los Angeles as the final audition city.

Fans who would like to get a shot at stardom will have to come at The Forum at 7:00 AM on Tuesday, September 21 to take wristbands. Then they will be told to go home before coming back the next day at 5 A.M. to queue and meet the judges.

"This summer we have had an exceptional turnout - both in the number of people auditioning and the level of their talent," said exec producer Ken Warwick. "Los Angeles has always delivered great talent, and so we feel it only fitting that we end our 10th season audition tour here in our home city."

In addition to expanding the city range, "Idol" is also open for wider age range. Aspiring singers as young as 15 years old are now welcomed for a try out.

This extra date will also benefit FOX in buying time before they should officially announce who will replace and . 's participation has been confirmed while 's deal reportedly has just been sealed. It is still a question mark as to whether and would return.

Tenth season of "American Idol" debuts in January 2011.
