Greenpoint is set to be flooded next week with aspiring singers looking to become the next American Idol. 

The cable television singing competition will be hosting an open audition on Tuesday, July 23, at the Brooklyn Expo Center on Noble Street for the upcoming season of the show.

The Greenpoint auditions will be the only American Idol open call held in the state, and just one of three being held in the north eastern United States. Auditions will also be held in Pittsburgh and Washington D.C. in September.

Those interested in auditioning can register for a time-slot online or in-person at the Brooklyn Expo Center on the day of the auditions. In-person registration will start no later than 9:00 a.m., according to the American Idol website, and will continue throughout the audition day until all available spots have been filled. Idol hopefuls must be between the ages of 15 and 28 to be eligible to register. 

American Idol aired for 15 seasons on Fox before it was picked up by its current network, ABC, in 2018. Last season’s judges, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, have not yet signed on for the upcoming season.
