According to reports, you can pick up a wristband and seat ticket at the Check-In when you reach the audition location. The show also suggests signing the Personal Release form ahead of time.

Once you get started, you can either sing a cappella or accompanied by an instrument. You may be asked to sing two to three songs, so make sure you have multiple options. If you receive a callback, you may be asked to sing a song off a producer's list of options, and another song of your choice. It is important to note, you will have to go through multiple rounds of auditions before you get a chance to meet the judges and make the cut.
