American Idol 12 auditions in Chicago have begun. The producers round is today and tomorrow at the McCormick Center. I’m hearing that Schyler Dixon (Colton’s sister) Shelby Tweten (AI 11 teen with bipolar disorder), Richie Law (Heejun’s BFF!) and Johnny Keyser (AI11 singer, many felt was robbed) all sang for the producers today. No word on if they made it through to the judges round.
The hopefuls who advance today and tomorrow will sing for the celebrity judges–Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Adler Planetarium.
Stay tuned for updates as I get them!
