San Antonio Auditions
American Idol Auditions drew 7, 000 hopefuls in San Antonio, TX, Friday:
Jessica and Joeni Guerra, 18, holding hands and dressed identically, sang together and solo. Jessica chose Thalia’s “Por Amor” to inject a little “flavor of San Antonio, ” she said. The judges were won over.
Grant Fisher, who was quick with the snappy wisecracks and could have been cast as Willis’ younger brother in “Moonlighting, ” said his green tie got him noticed. It also didn’t hurt, he figured, that his barbershop version of a Brian McKnight song was a creative mix of rock and R&B.
Auditions continue in East Rutherford, NJ, Monday.
For those of you interested in keeping track of the audition process, Idol Forums has opened their Season 6 spoiler thread here. You’ll already find a list of auditioners who have passed round one, along with websites and MySpace pages if they exist. A GIANT thank you to Idol Maniac from Idol Forums for the heads up on that, and for taking the time to gather the information to keep us (ME!) informed.
