Due to the devastation in southeast Texas caused by Hurricane Harvey, American Idol is canceling upcoming auditions in the area.
The reality singing competition announced Tuesday on Twitter that it will no longer be making stops in Houston and San Antonio, which had been scheduled for Saturday and Monday.
“The safety of the community is of the utmost importance and our thoughts go out to all of those affected,” the statement said, while also encouraging interested parties to attend future auditions in bordering Louisiana or to apply online.
