'Nominate an Idol' Returns for New Season of AMERICAN IDOL

On a quest to find the next singing superstar, American Idol XIII is once again expanding the audition opportunities by bringing back the "Nominate An Idol" program to look for talented singers who may not audition on their own. Family and friends may nominate individuals whom they think could be the next American Idol atwww.americanidol.com, from now through Friday, Sept. 20.

Individuals can secretly nominate their friends or family by submitting the appropriate forms and video or URL of their "nominee" singing solo and a cappella. Chosen candidates may be surprised on location by a film crew and given the chance to advance to the next round of auditions. Submissions and nominations must comply with all rules and meet all eligibility requirements and be a surprise. To nominate someone, family and friends must read and agree to the terms and conditions. Please keep checking www.americanidol.com for submission rules and terms and conditions.
