American Idol, which has been running on FOX for an impressive fourteen seasons now, is filming its Season XIV semi-finals at the Fillmore in Detroit in February and March.

My Fox Detroit reports that host Ryan Seacrest and celebrity judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. will all be on hand to whittle the 24 superstar hopefuls down to 12.



The semi-final tapings are slated to take place on Feb. 19, as well as March 4 and 5, and apparently there's already a wait list for tickets. Feel free to join it here, or catch the tapings when they air on FOX later this spring.
