American Idol 10 – Judges Audition Hopefuls in Milwaukee – Photos and Videos

UPDATE: New photo from Nigel Lythgoe at the Milwaukee auditions:  @DizzyFeet: “I am loving the #AmericanIdol talent in Milwaukee.″

The American Idol crew, including judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson are in Milwaukee, WI Saturday and Sunday auditioning hopefuls.

Check out 11 photos of the set, in the Milwaukee Art Museum HERE.  The winners mural is gone, but the panels on the left display photos of  Idol winners.

Also, check out photos of the judges arriving to auditions HERE.

Producer Nigel Lythgoe who is there overseeing the bunch, tweeted earlier today, “So far the talent has been amazing in Milwaukee. What’s in the water here?”  What else is the guy who’s been sent in to save Idol going to say?

Super-glad the mural is gone.  There were too many Idols to fit.  So many, that poor Taylor Hicks ended up behind a plant.  I like the window backdrop. It makes the room look sunny and inviting, and a nice contrast to the steel-and-lacquer look of the set.  What do you think?

UPDATE: Photo of the set, plus video of Ryan, Randy, Steven and Jennifer arriving at the museum.  OMG. You have to check out the video of Steven. He is WACK-A-DOODLE. Paula Abdul on steroids…
