List of people who performed on American Idol, sorted by last name.

This is by no means a complete list, as an estimated 500,000 people have auditioned (many more than once) and were never shown. These people either (mostly) appeared with their name shown on TV or (in a few cases) released a recording with credits to AI despite never being shown on TV. This list is also heavily tilted at those in Season 3 and later seasons; in the first two seasons, contestants cut before the semi-finals generally had little attention.
