American Idol mentor Bobby Bones is tweeting from Savannah, Georgia this morning. I wonder if he’ll be stepping into the role host Ryan Seacrest usually plays–greeting singers outside the auditions rooms, interviewing family and friends, etcetera. With Ryan co-hosting Live with Kelly and Ryan every day in New York City, *he may not be able to participate in the Judges Auditions at all.
UPDATE: *Ryan Seacrest repoting from Georgia
