Poor Brandon Rogers! He twittered from the Los Angeles auditions a few minutes ago, “This is but an example of the ridiculousness that is The LA Idol auditions. Behold! ” Ha ha.
The La Times’s Richard Rushfield is there too, and reports that “Crying Girl”, Ashley Ferl, arrived to audition. She just turned 16 and is eligible for the first time. She’s probably crying, and auditioning…and crying. (If you are unfamiliar with Ashley read this.)
According to the Pasadena Star-News, “thousands” of people turned up at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena to audition, causing backlogs on the freeway and prompting fire officials to send extra personnel on site.
More info as it becomes available!
