With the premiere of the highly anticipated Season 12 of American Idol just around the corner, many with singing aspirations are already asking when the auditions will be for 2013.

Although American Idol hasn’t announced yet whether it will have a Season 13 (although that’s a no-brainer, right?) or where auditions will be as of yet, it’s best to keep checking the audition section of periodically to make sure you don’t miss anything. The show typically announces the next list of cities just as the current season is wrapping.

In the meantime,  you can take a look at this past season’s auditions, which took place in the following cities:

Los Angeles, California Dodger Stadium  6/7/12
San Antonio, Texas Alamodome 6/14/12
Charlotte, North Carolina Time Warner Cable Arena 6/19/12
Newark, New Jersey Prudential Center 6/23/12
Chicago, Illinois United Center 7/12/12
New Orleans, Louisiana 7/17/12
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 7/20/12

Last year, some of your fave Season 11 Idols dished on why they decided to audition for this juggernaut of a show.

Would you try out? They could be coming to a city near you!
