Those auditioning will not have to sing in front of superstar judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, today at least.

At this stage, they’ll face two rounds of auditions in front of producers. If they make it through, they’ll get to perform in front of the judges later on.

Registration is open until 5:00 p.m. Sunday.
