"American Idol" will be coming to Utah next year. The top-rated Fox program will hold auditions for the show's eighth season in Salt Lake City, according to executive producer Nigel Lythgoe.

Lythgoe told the Utah Fox affiliate Monday that the kids we got from Salt Lake City were the best, and because of that, I'm going to take 'American Idol' there next season.

Details on when and where the auditions will be held have yet to be released.
