‘American Idol’ may be coming to a town near you! Season 13 just wrapped but they’re already announcing details for the upcoming 14th season — including audition cities and their locations, plus a more unique way to audition.

The reality show has announced dates for five cities with several more on the way. They’re not visiting your hometown? Never fear. Once again, you can audition in the comfort of you own home — with a web audition (if you’re between the ages of 15-28). Upload a video of yourself singing between now and July 1 but they’ll only allow one. Click here for more details for a video submission.

The five cities that have confirmed dates are listed below. The ‘American Idol’ Audition Bus Tour will hit several cities as well, including Portland, Ore., Portland, Maine, Reno, Nev., Columbus, Ohio, Albuquerque, N.M., Amarillo, Texas, Myrtle Beach, S.C., Branson, Mo., Tallahassee, Fla., Richmond, Va., and Kansas City, Mo. The dates for those aren’t confirmed yet, neither are details, but they’re expected to be released soon.

Country fans will be happy to know our favorite Australian singer Keith Urban will be back for the season as well. Harry Connick Jr. also confirmed that he would be returning when he appeared on ‘Live! With Kelly and Michael,’ saying, “I’ll be back.” There’s no official word on Jennifer Lopez and whether or not she’ll be returning next year — but it looks likely.
