Good news for you 15-year-old singing prodigies out there!
American Idol is lowering the minimum age requirement to participate in the competition to 15! The maximum age of 28 remains unchanged however.
Cecile Frot-Coutaz, executive producer of the show explains:
“A lot of young, talented people are now seeking careers and representation before they turn 16. Lowering the age limit allows us to tap into this talent pool.”
Is this so the contestants won't all tower over Seacrest? HA!
