The first online auditions for "American Idol" are open.

To mark the Fox TV show's 10th anniversary, hopeful pop stars have the chance to submit an audition video on MySpace through Oct. 6.

Fox said Wednesday the entries must be no longer than 40 seconds and chosen from a list of songs posted online, along with other audition guidelines. A "select number" of people will move on to a tryout in Los Angeles, the network said.

In 2007, "American Idol" staged its first online contest, this one for songwriters.

The show's next season starts in January and will feature a revamped judging panel. Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are the front-runners to join Randy Jackson.
