A summer afternoon in Brooklyn just might land you a ticket to Hollywood. 

"American Idol" is holding open-call auditions for its upcoming third season on ABC in Greenpoint, the network confirmed. 

In-person auditions for series producers kick off Tuesday at the Brooklyn Expo Center, and continue through September with dates set for Las Vegas (Aug. 26), Washington, D.C., (Sept. 4) and Nashville, Tennessee (Sept. 18).

For the upcoming season, ABC is keeping its "Idol" hopefuls between the ages of 15 and 28 years old. Those outside of the age range won't be eligible to register. If you register online, you'll have a better chance of securing an audition time slot. 

New Yorkers who line up at the venue will also have the opportunity to register in-person, starting at 9 a.m. At most audition locations, fans begin lining up as early as 6 a.m.

"American Idol" was renewed for a third season on ABC in May, and is expected to premiere in 2020. The celebrity judges for the new round have not yet been announced and therefore won't be in attendance at the Brooklyn audition. Instead, it'll serve as a pre-screening round. 

Judges Luke Bran, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie have not yet commented on if they'd return.

"American Idol" aired 15 seasons on Fox, its original network, before being picked up by ABC in 2018. The upcoming 2020 release will technically mark the series' 18th season.
