American Idol Auditions

By November 4, 2010

Follow me on:

American Idol AuditionsCasting calls and auditions offer the opportunity for would-be stars to show their talent and gain a spot on reality tv and other television shows, in films, and in theater.

American Idol auditions, for example, are held at locations throughout the country. If you're interested in attaining your fifteen (or probably less...) minutes of fame these type of auditions can give you a chance to get it! Audition details are posted in the Auditions section of the American Idol web site.

I would audition I mean I’ve been told I got the talent and the skill but I’d wait until I got some extra practice in got some advice,and you know take the time to really work on my vocals and think about what I’d be giving up I mean c’mon! Once your a star you sign a deal for life! Because you can’t visit home without being followed by the paparazzi or sleazy journalists and your family wouldn’t even be allowed to sleep without being harassed 24/7! I mean seriously? And plus if you liked the way you sounded your record company will most likely want to change it I mean just look what they did to Usher! A small town good Christian choir boy discovered and they made him into a POP and RAP sensation! So I’d seriously think about what you’re giving up…I mean if Angelina Jolie hadn’t gotten discovered her kids probably would live a normal life. And lastly don’t forget that when your a star you most likely will lose sight of what’s really important the music,that’s what broke up KISS because they were to busy fighting over who got paid more So just remember this.

Anyone can go to the open auditions and if you are willing to brave the LONG lines and waits for a possible chance then I say go for it – my sister has gone thru 3 of these open auditions in 2 different states and nothing as of yet. She’s very talented and has had years of lessons – think it’s really about finding the right sound that appeals to everyone. I also keep telling her to start out small and build up. There are some great online contests like MakeAStar that really help you get your name out and exposure sometimes helps with auditions on that level — sometimes :/
