There is a lot of talent in Western New York, and people are going to get an opportunity to show it this Sunday (9/9) as American Idol comes to Buffalo.

It's the first time that they have come this close.  In the past, if you wanted to compete, you would have to travel to cities that were hours away.

Producers guess that this will be one of the busiest auditions ever.

So this is your chance to prove it WNY...can you be the next winner of American Idol?  Here are some things you need to know according to WKBW,

  • Contestants must be between the ages of 15-28
  • Auditions run from 7am-5pm
  • Contestants must be legal U.S. residents
  • Contestants are not allowed to wear/or have items with names ((sports teams, brand names etc.)) or logos.
