American Idol Lowers Entry Age

American Idol is getting younger.

Beginning with Season 10, contestants can be between 15 and 28 years old, a year younger than in previous seasons, Fox announced Monday.

"A lot of young, talented people are now seeking careers and representation before they turn 16," executive producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz said. "Lowering the age limit allows us to tap into this talent pool."

Here's the list of summer audition locations:

Saturday, July 17: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville

Wednesday, July 21: Bradley Center, Milwaukee

Monday, July 26: TBA, New Orleans

Tuesday, Aug. 3: IZOD Center, East Rutherford, N.J.

Wednesday, Aug. 11: Frank Erwin Center, Austin, Texas

Thursday, Aug. 19: AT&T Park, San Francisco
