American Idol to Hold Auditions in Kansas and Missouri

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Auditions for "American Idol" are being planned in some smaller cities, as the hit television show goes in search of singing talent for its 12th season. The FOX network has announced that the show's new "Small Town Audition Bus Tour" is scheduled to make stops in Joplin, Missouri; Dodge City, Kansas; Grand Junction, Colorado; and Iowa City, Iowa. It's all part of a 10-city tour that is also slated to stop in Kentucky, Mississippi, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. Specific dates, times and locations have yet to be announced. The show also is taking nominations for people who may not think of trying out themselves, and it's accepting online video submissions for two weeks, beginning August 1.
