Description:

Fox Executives, 

For the next season, it's time to up the American Idol age limit again.

The first three seasons you had to be 16 to 24 years of age to audition. Since the fourth season, the upper age limit was raised to 28.  We would like to see it raised again to 35.

Sign this petition if you agree you can still be an idol at 35.

Would like to see the age limit raised to 35 as my better half wants to audition once again... Come on American Idol you really need to up the age limit, due to the other singing competitions out there on TV that have no age limit... You all really need to start doing something out there to start getting more people involved of the higher age bracket... Let them compete for a change... As a matter of fact there should be no age limit
Im 31 i would like to be in american idol...
Talent is Talent!! No matter if you are Blind, Crippled, or Crazy!! I've heard a lot of ppl singing and playing a instrument at the same time, that it would make these younger want to bee's QUIT!! I saw a guy in a WHEELCHAIR THAT WAS PLAYING PIANO AND SINGING AT THE SAME TIME, AND THIS GUY WAS ABSOLUTLY UNREAL!! People were going crazy over this person!! That WHEELCHAIR did not stop him from performing or giving up on life!! It was a real treat to watch this guy ENTERTAING THE WHOLE AUDIENCE! Nobody left the show until he was finished for the night. EVERYBODY wanted a piece of time because he was just THAT GOOD! His PERSONALITY was FANTASTIC! He is truly a GOD GIFTED PERSON. He is different in every aspect of his life, yet he keeps pushing on. This is what AMERICAN IDOL is MISSING!!! The judges always say that they are looking for somebody 'DIFFERENT',, Well this guy is THAT PERSON! He would MOP THE FLOOR with the COMPITION, NOBODY would be able to keep up with him! Please raise the age LIMIT so that people like him and others, have a FIGHTING chance!! Thank You for your time, Jimmy Milliken.
Music has no age. The competition shouldn't either. If America doesn't want to vote for someone because of their age, at least give them the opportunity to not vote.
I was interested in trying out myself since they are finally coming my way but I just turned 30 and I really would love for them to up the age limit so that I could have a chance.

Why even have an age limit? Let America decide WHO our idol is!

It's time to raise the age limit to 35. American Idol is missing out on a lot of incredible voices because of the current age limit.
It's time to raise the age limit to 35. American Idol is missing out on a lot of amazing talent.
Raise the age limit to 35. You are missing out on some incredible singers that have put in the time.
I am finally ready to try out and now Im too old at 30. Makes me sad. Please increase to 35.
I auditioned 6 seasons in a row and was told to come back each time. Literally through my twenties I traveled the country auditioning now I'm 30 going on 31 and unfortunately am too old even though I think 15 is too **** young. Come on idol, you'll become obsolete if you don't go with every other show and just remove the friggin age limit. Its honestly the facelift that idol needs..stop switching judges and start listening to your viewers.
agreed. raise the limit to at least 35. Was finally ready to do it just now..just to see that 31 is too old to try out. Keep the push up guys, good work. J.C.
Yes I would love to audition to for american idol but I am 31 please please please raise the age limit.
I think you should be able to be 30 because its like being 29.Plus my mother is incredible and has been singing FOREVER so it would be awesome if she could audition!!!
I think that someone should be able to be 30 to try because its like being 29
Age limiting is wrong at any age. If you've got it, you've got it and if you don't, you don't. There could be an Aretha clone out there. Shouldn't she be allowed to compete?
YES!! RAISE THE AGE LIMIT!! IT IS STUPID TO HAVE IT SO LOW!!
can u be fourteen really wanna try out because its always been my dream to be a singer and try out to be on american idol my name is kyana.
Absolutely, I don't understand the age limit anyway. I think if they raised it to 35 or 16 and up that it would help the rating. Which have been dropping regularly.
why have age limit at all? what age defines new talent? it is age discrimination and the age restrictions need to be removed.......
My husband is almost 38 yrs. old, had a band for several years & has an awesome voice-a god given talent. I would love to see a raise in the age limit.
The music industry is so agist; makes people feel like can't have a life and opportunities to be seen if they are no longer in their 20's- not true and not fair.
I have a dream ticket (from winning finale at Disney American Idol Experience) and I am 36. I went up against a 16 year old, 18 year old and 23 year old and I won it. I want a chance, too!! Raise the limit to 40!!!!

I say 40!!! I am not 40 but I am 36... :( no way to get in!! Give us a chance to!!!!!

(: well look me up on face book Desaray Johnson
Please raise the limit to at least 30-35. Im 28 now and just found out I will never be able to audition. Ive finally worked up the guts to come out of my shell and do this and now I cant because Im too old!!! By the time I can audition for the first time, I'll be 29, I'll be too old!!! I didnt realize 29 would be too old till I looked up the age limit! Please raise the limit, give me a chance.
