The "American Idol XIV" bus, which will be stopping in Tallahassee on July 20 for open auditions, announced on Thursday that it will be taking up temporary residence on Langford Green, off Champions Way on the Florida State campus.

Auditions will be held from approximately 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. that Sunday, with anyone eligible – between the ages of 15 and 28 plus some other requirements – allowed to line up for a chance to sing for an "Idol" producer.

Hopefuls are encouraged to arrive and register as close to 9 a.m. as possible, since there is likely to be a large crowd. Auditioners may have to wait all day, and there's no guarantee that everyone will be seen.

The bus tour information sheet emphasizes that camping out overnight to get a better place in line is not allowed. No earliest permitted arrival time has yet been announced, but other cities have opened the lines at about 6 a.m.

Those who make it through the first rounds of open auditions for the popular TV competition will be asked to return for subsequent rounds over the next several days. The next season is tentatively scheduled to begin taping sometime between October and December of this year.
