Aspiring musicians in Gwinnett and around the region should mark July 26 on their calendars: American Idol auditions are coming to The Arena at Gwinnett Center.

Gwinnett is one of six locations to be selected to host auditions for Season 13 of popular reality-singing television competition on Fox. Registration is scheduled to be on July 25, and the auditions are scheduled to start at 8 a.m. on July 26.

Registration and audition rules can be found atgwinnettcenter.com or americanidol.com.

Last season, Suwanee resident and North Gwinnett High student Alexa Gilomen advanced to Hollywood on the show, while Collins Hill High graduate Matheus Fernandes was also a featured participant.

Snellville native Diana DeGarmo was runnerup on the show in 2004.
