By Hope Bidegainberry on August 22, 2017

Idol is back! American Idol made an audition stop in Oakland on Sunday August 20, and KOIT was there to catch the action. More than 2,000 people lined up in sunny Jack London Square for their chance to sing their hearts out in front of the preliminary judges. It was the first time the popular show chose Oakland to pick through Idol hopefuls, as the American Idol tour has usually stopped in San Francisco for Bay Area auditions.

Oakland definitely brought the talent, passion and heart! Will the next American Idol hail from the Bay?
