'American Idol' to hold auditions for final season in Baltimore

Think you're the next Kelly Clarkson? Now's your last chance.

Calling all undiscovered superstars: Fox's "American Idol" will hold open-call auditions for its final season on June 20 at the Kaufman Pavilion, between the Maryland Science Center and Rash Field.

Auditions will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and eager singers are encouraged to arrive as close to 9 a.m. as possible.

The show, a pioneer in genre of reality TV talent shows, announced in May that Season 15 would be its last, ending an era of musical talent, bad auditions and, of course, seeing Ryan Seacrest weekly on television.

Though this season won't offer an opportunity to sing in front of the original judges, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, you can still try and win your ticket to Hollywood from current judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban.

Final season announcements hinted at potential returning guests, so who knows, maybe you'll even get a tip or some applause from familiar "Idol" faces like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood or Clay Aiken.

A premiere date has not been announced for Season 15, but new seasons of the show have generally launched in January.
