'American Idol' registration begins at Petco Park

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Thousands of aspiring singers spent the night outside Petco Park to sign up Wednesday to audition for the 11th season of "American Idol."

Registration began at 7 a.m. and will continue Thursday and Friday, when the first round of auditions will begin at the ballpark.

Singers who make the initial cut will be asked to return to Petco for a second round of auditions Saturday through Monday.

The last time "American Idol" producers held auditions in San Diego was in 2007, when 12,000 people packed into Qualcomm Stadium.

The rules of "American Idol" state that a singer must be 14 to 29 years old, and a legal U.S. citizen or a permanent U.S. resident eligible to work full-time in the country. A driver's license and birth certificate or passport will be requested, and minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
