It was all hush-hush and supra-secret as the second and third round auditions took place in Miami this weekend. Looks like the producers aren’t letting the press anywhere near the proceedings. Somebody managed to get a picture, however…Ugh, those red shoes!
This week, the gang will be in Omaha, NE:
But some contestants have said producers have asked them to show up at the arena Oct. 2 and 3 for auditions in front of a team of judges that probably will include the program’s top producers, Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick.
According to media accounts in those cities, contestants will be given a song to learn in a few minutes. They then must sing it, and maybe a couple of others, in front of the preliminary judges. Some contestants have said they’ve performed a number of times for different producers.
Those who keep impressing will get a shot at performing in front of the big three later in the week.
