American Idol 11 auditions hit San Diego, CA on Sunday and Monday for the last of the judges’ round auditions. And for something completely different, instead of holding the tryouts in a fancy hotel, Idol producers took the show to the historic USS Midway ship, holding approximately 60 auditions there.
The American Idol 11 crew, including Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Ryan Seacrest auditioned golden ticket winners in the golden triangle Wednesday and Thursday. Oh. That would be Pittsburgh, PA. It’s Idol’s first trip to the Steel City!
Rodney over at AJC whipped up an estimate of the number of hopefuls who attended American Idol auditions this summer, and noted the tally was down by 6%. I figured it was due to the lack of big cities on the list–no Los Angeles, New York or Philadelphia.
The very last city of cattle call auditions for American Idol 11 are underway today in Houston TX.
An estimated 10, 000 hopefuls turned up at Reliant Stadium this morning at 5 am after registering Wednesday and Thursday.
Amazing personalities! Perfect! BEAUTIFUL! THE BAR HAS BEEN RAISED! IT’S EVEN HIGHER NOW! BLAH BLAH BLAH.
Yep. It’s the first press conference from the first stop on the American Idol 11 judges’ round of auditions. LET THE HYPERBOLE BEGIN!!!
UPDATE: Here’s the official Press Release announcing the judges return to Idol! Reportedly, Jennifer signed another 1 year contract.
American Idol debuts Sunday, Jan. 22 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), immediately following the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME on FOX.
I guess that American Idol contract is a go, because Jennifer Lopez has arrived in Savannah, GA for the 1st round of Judges auditions today. A press conference for the judges and Ryan Seacrest is reportedly set for tomorrow.
That official press release from FOX announcing that all 3 judges and Ryan Seacrest will be returning to American Idol for Season 11 has got to be coming in the next couple of days.
A Savannah, newspaper is reporting that yellow ticket holders from the Charleston, SC auditions will be singing before the American Idol judges when auditions begin in that southern city later this week.
