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.

Music and talent have no

Music and talent have no age. Perhaps America needs to evolve, already, and stop perpetuating the idolizations of youth and beauty. Especially in a singing contest. It's sad and embarrassing for our country, as a whole.

Lowery it to 9years im 9 and

Lowery it to 9years im 9 and i made a song and i want to sing it

Please raise the age limit!

Please raise the age limit! I am 29 and really would like to finally be able to pursue my dream!!!

Would be cool. There's much

Would be cool. There's much more developed talent above the current age limit. Given the contestants on Idol this year, I don't think they have a choice...

I'm 31 and would love to be

I'm 31 and would love to be the next American Idol just like everyone else I think anyone would agree that talent is talent. How can you put an age limit on something like that really?

i think that raising the age

i think that raising the age limit is great that give people that is older then 28 the chance to become a singer.

I would love to see the age

I would love to see the age oimit raised to at lease 35, I'm 29 meaning I'm too old to audition, really?
I finally mustered up the courage to audition for idol, after putting it off due to not being ready for a long time. I auditioned for America's got talent last year and this year, didn't make last year, don't know if i'll make it this year but I'll keep trying.
Bottom line is all the other talent show have or had no upper age limit, why because they understand that talent has no age limit. You are missing out on some amazingly talented people because you choose to limit not only yourselves, but some great singers who could benefit from idol, shame on you for promoting the idea that because you're older means it's over.

Agree.Well said

Would like to see the age

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

Talent is Talent!! No matter

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

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.

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.

Age limiting is wrong at any

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!!

YES!! RAISE THE AGE LIMIT!! IT IS STUPID TO HAVE IT SO LOW!!

can u be fourteen really

Absolutely, I don't

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?

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.

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

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

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!!!!

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.

i was an area (ark-la-tex)

i was an area (ark-la-tex) idol finalist in 2005 and 2006. now i'm 31/32 and I hate the idol dream has to end there...i think older contestants have proved many times the most seasoned and best presence' have been older. plus you'll open back up the ratings for my age group again and older...(we are the ones who made IDOL what it is) so raise your ages of contestants to once again make us feel part of the idol phenomenon again!

How about raising the age

Yes I believe the age limit

Yes I believe the age limit should be raised. There are many singers above the age of 28 who are being over looked. Susan Boyle was overlooked and look how amazing she is inside and out!
