UPDATE: It’s been confirmed! The boys and girls arrive on different days.  Boys arrived today, the girls on Thursday!  Boys total about 109, give or take a few…

The first set of hopefuls arrive in Los Angeles today for the Hollywood Rounds! As I mentioned previously, the hopefuls are arriving in two sets–the first group on Monday and the second on Thursday.

Speculation is swirling that the Hollywood hopefuls will be divided into boys and girls and will initially audition separately, before coming together when the group of 300ish is whittled down.

Hollywood Week will take place this year at the Valley Performance Arts Center in North Ridge, CA. There is a contestant meet and greet tonight at around 6 pm PST.  The first round begins tomorrow morning.

Stay tuned for more updates!
