THEY COME FROM ACROSS AMERICA in search of one dream.

Grammy Award-winning and platinum-selling recording artist, actress, movie and television producer and entrepreneur Jennifer Lopez returns to AMERICAN IDOL® XIII as a judge. Lopez will be joined by Grammy and Emmy Award-winning multi-platinum singer, musician, songwriter, composer and film/television and Broadway actor Harry Connick, Jr. The two will sit on the IDOL™ judges' panel with judge Keith Urban, the four-time Grammy Award-winning country artist who has sold more than 15 million albums.

Rounding out the team is IDOL™ veteran Randy Jackson, who will lend his industry and IDOL™ expertise to the contestants as an in-house mentor. Once again, the team will be led by Emmy Award-nominated host Ryan Seacrest, who has guided the IDOL™ contestants and judges through each season's incredible journey.

When we get to your position on the wait list, you will be notified via email that 'Check-In Vouchers' are available. A Check-In Voucher allows you to check-in at the show on a specified day and be eligible to receive admission on a first-come, first-served basis. No persons will be allowed to check-in or stand in line at the studio without a valid voucher.

We can accommodate four check-in vouchers per request.

We are unable to accommodate requests for specific dates.

The amount of check-in vouchers we can accommodate changes weekly; making it impossible to know WHEN you will be notified and we are unable to provide more than several days notice.

Once notification of check-in voucher availability is emailed, the vouchers are available on a first-come, first-served basis until we are at full capacity. So, you must act quickly!

If you miss the opportunity to come to the show at that time, you will be automatically placed back on the wait list. +
