Talented and Undiscovered? Idol is Auditioning New Yorkers this Week!
American Idol, is still doing it after two decades
Thanks in part to the popularity of YouTube, Instagram, Tik Tok, Twitter X, and Facebook, there are plenty of ways to get "discovered" in 2023. The music and entertainment industry changes so quickly, in a strange way, auditioning on American Idol feels kind of "old school".
It's hard to believe that it's been 4 years since Clifton Park's Madison Vandenburgh blew the judges away with her rendition of Dan and Shay's "Tequila" during her Idol audition in 2019.
And nothing would be better than rooting for someone from right here in the Capital Region!
Now in its 22nd season (7th since the show rebooted in 2018), Idol continues to be a solid platform for aspiring and undiscovered talent, and this week they've got their sights set on singers from the Northeast, including New York.
