American Idol held auditions in Rapid City on Sunday, Sept. 10, and 349 contenders showed up. Rapid City is one of 21 tryout locations for the 2018 season.

Two additional auditions at Houston and San Antonio were canceled because of Hurricane Harvey.

The Fox network hosted the talent show for 15 season, ending it in April 2016. Now ABC is picking it up.
