so, I did it! I finally tried out for American idol! My brother and I got in line at 5 am and met some great people! They were so hilarious and it made our time in line go by so quickly. When we got inside, we all had to sing group songs on camera and say some corny lines like "oh my heck! Welcome to Utah!" and. "what the fetch? Welcome to Utah". After about 2 hours of that nonsense and recording intos with Ryan seacrest, auditions finally began. We were in the second section and still had to wait until 1:00 to get our 20 seconds of fame. I sang really well and was proud of myself, but I was not suprised when the judges said they would not ask me to continue on. They rejected some really amazing singers and let a lot of strange people go through. The judge basically said "your a fine singer but you could be a bit stronger". My bro did not make it either. Honestly, I was not sad at all! I was releived that I could finally get some lunch and come home to my daughter. It was a fun experience, but one I will never repeat! Ha! I'm excited to watch in January to see who got through cause those judges were not kidding around!

Good for you! I never tried out, and now I think I'm too old, unless they have recently changed the age? Anyway, my heyday with music I think is pretty much behind me, sadly :)
