Unfortunately, little things get in the way of my blogging. Like my job, for instance. Just a little thing. Ha. Between travelling this week, and catching up at work, I am behind on my blogging, as usual. Good thing, the blog continues on without me, as LisaB and Kirsten keep you guys and informed and massively entertained every day with Idol news and chart and sales news (respectively). Thanks guys!
While I was away, Idol auditions took place in Atlanta, GA this week. My blogger buddy Rodney Ho from the Atlanda-Journal Constitution was on hand at the Georgia Dome to blog the excitement–from registration, to the auditions, to first-person audition accounts. Ryan Seacrest was there as was Constantine Maroulis who was appearing on behalf of Garnier hair products (?!!?)
Fifteen-thousand hopefuls waited in line for their chance to audition for the first-line producers and hopefully move on to the producer and judges rounds. Rodney interviewed repeat auditioners, and Season 6’s Brandon Rogers and Kimberly Caldwell covered the event for TV Guide.
Auditions begin today in Charlston, SC. By Thursday morning, 4, 000 had arrived to wait in line. By this morning, the number grew to 9, 000. The next city on the schedule is Miami, FL, Wednesday, August 22.
