Do you think you have what it takes to be the next Lauren Alaina?
The Rossville teenager was the runner-up on American Idol in the 2011 season. Since then, no one from the NewsChannel 9 viewing area has made it that far.
But that could change with the new season, which now airs on ABC, starting this fall.
The show is holding auditions throughout the country later this summer, and the closest audition sites to the NewsChannel 9 viewing area are Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Atlanta.
