Those wanting to audition need to bring two forms of ID to show proof of your age and a photograph, as well as a completed personal release form, the site says.

"This landmark singing competition has been a part of our national popular culture for more than a decade, and we are excited about the possibility that the next American Idol could be found right here along the Grand Strand."
