ABC has picked up American Idol and auditions are being held across the country this summer. There is a Shreveport stop on the bus tour later this year.
In fact, American Idol auditions will be held in nearly every state.

The show was a big winner for Fox for fifteen years, but its popularity faded over the past couple of years and Fox pulled the plug. ABC is dusting off the formula for the show and is repackaging it.

The nationwide search for talent kicks off on Thursday, August 17th in Portland, Oregon. The stop in Shreveport is set for Monday September 4th.
