American applicants would have to sign up here: http://www.avexstarsearch.com/

If you are unable to attend any of those 3 cities, whichever city that gets the most applicants AVEX will try to set up an audition there as well. I also think you can send them a videotape and if they like you they'll send you to the next round in Japan.

Cool! Finally someone decided to make a thread about this! (i was about to but I kept forgetting :sweatingbullets: )

I think they would like it if you knew some level of Japanese (i think they said conversational Japanese on the site) but I think if you can sing a Japanese song well then they will definitely consider you. And they also said that they will give u additional language lessons along with vocal, dance, etc.

I also heard that they are having auditions in Canada in December.

a_dreamer143 I'm not sure about how long it takes for them to respond to selected applicants...I applied last week.

I don't think it should be a problem honestly. Like what sarang_ailove said they should provide language classes. Japanese is pretty much an easy language to learn^^; (much easier than korean imo)

You can still apply! :) If there are enough applicants from your area then they might consider going to a city in your area. Just sign up. It won't hurt.
