More than 5,000 hopefuls arrived at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ Saturday to audition for American Idol Season 12.
Listen to the voices of a few of the singers who could grace the Idol stage come January. Well, probably not, but you never know.
We even get a sprinkling of backstories, including a woman who recently lost her husband, and another who was diagnosed with autism.
UPDATE: Austin Percario from The X Factor group InTENsity is singing “Put Your Records On” at the 3:27 mark.
Check out the Newark sampling below.
