American Idol Season 5 is gearing up to be quite the blockbuster with judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, plus Host Ryan Seacrest returning for another season. If it seems that their has to be way more than 5 seasons of the show you would be right, but the show went on hiatus for a while and returned on ABC network with the new crew of judges.

Although for some this may seem like a crazy pipe dream to be on the show you will never know unless you try and some past contestants that have had major commercial success did not even win. But you need to hustle auditions again are this Wednesday, so get a song together and get ready to make a good impression. How cool would that be to have someone from Minnesota or Wisconsin make it Hollywood for Season 5?
