Has anyone had experience with auditions for this? My DD is considering auditions while we are there. (She is vocalist–teaches choral music to middle schoolers) Friends and family have been after her for YEARS to try out for the real thing, but she isn’t interested in being a “star”.
I was reading up on this on the website, and it looks like you really do get through the first step to real auditions for American Idol. If you win at DHS, you get a Direct Ticket.
Now, it says you can keep the Direct Ticket and not go on, or you can pursue further auditions. Later on in the rules and regulations, it says that anyone can audition, however if you win and don’t intend to go further on, you are taking away someone elses chance for the real show. Hmmm—
Now, we are thinking she shouldn’t do it—although if she wins, it will look great on her resume, and boy would her students absolutely love it!!! But—She really has no aspirations to be an American Idol Star.
Anyone else on here have a family member who tried out? Just curious about the process and if he/she/you won that day, if you went on. Thanks
