Charlotte among sites for ‘American Idol’ tryouts

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – The producers of “American Idol” are visiting Charlotte for the first time in search of talent.

The Fox network show announced Friday that tryouts for the show will be held June 19 at Time Warner Cable Arena. The producers say registration will be held on the two days prior to the auditions.

In 2005, Kellie Pickler of Albemarle and Bucky Covington of Hamlet tried out in Greensboro and made it to the Fox show.

Auditions are also scheduled for six other cities, including Los Angeles, Oklahoma City, Newark and New Orleans.
