EAST RUTHERFORD - "American Idol" hopefuls lined up in East Rutherford this morning for a chance to try out for the upcoming season.

Wristbands were distributed to singers during today's pre-registration. Once singers obtain their wristband, they'll be asked to return for the audition.

Auditions will take place inside the Izod Center on Thursday, where singers will have the opportunity to perform for the show's producers.
