'American Idol' Will Allow Guitars on Season 13 Auditions


'American Idol' Will Allow Guitars on Season 13 Auditions


Singing hopefuls are allowed to strum their guitars after an a capella piece during the show's auditions.

Guitars are welcome again on "American Idol". After banning the musical instrument during season 12 auditions, possibly in an attempt to avoid crowning a sixth white guy with guitar, the show will allow potential season 13 contestants to bring their guitars into the audition room.

"Idol" reveals the new rule via an announcement on its official site. It says that "each audition MUST start with an a capella piece and hopefuls will only be able to use their guitars after the a capella audition at the discretion of the producers. Auditioners are not required to perform with a guitar at any time."

Expressing an excitement to welcome the six-string instrument back to the show, the "Idol" crew shows some hot air guitar moves in a Vine video.

The auditions will kick off on July 11 in Salt Lake City, and will include stops in San Fransisco, Detroit, Atlanta, Boston, Austin and Omaha. Singing hopefuls can also audition online, but without instrument. Visit "American Idol" official site for more info about the auditions.
