The contest winner will be selected on or about Oct 31, 2022. It’s important to note that Cover Nation will select the winning entrants, not American Idol producers.
The contest winner will be announced publicly on or about November 7, 2022 via a “Best of Contest” compilation video hosted on the Cover Nation YouTube channel.
American Idol season 21 auditions are happening now.
Singers can still audition for open calls. But also the Judges–Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan–have filmed auditions in Las Vegas and New Orleans. The third and last audition city will be in Nashville, set to film sometime in November.
