Start warming up your vocal cords because the famous American Idol auditions are making their way to Illinois. The show is currently on their auditions tour that travels across the country looking for the best of the best.

ABC7 details -

Chicago's open call audition will be held on September 21 at Wintrust Arena, located at 200 East Cermak Road. You must be at least 15 years old to audition.

Can't make it out to the audition happening on the 21? That's okay! It's 2019 and anything is possible. Instead of an in-person audition, just submit your video digitally with their online auditions. 

So whether you're going to be stepping in front of Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie or just in front of a camera, be sure to give the judges something they'll remember. Or just something that will go viral on Twitter.
