Another competition audition...

Well, I always said if American Idol came to Salt Lake City I would audition...

Apparently, and at long last, everyone's favorite televised singing competition will be plumbing for talent right here in Utah tomorrow. Elise, Jeff, Lacie and I are pretty determined to audition, just because it's right here, and it will be a fun time to join the incredible crowds and feel the hype and energy. I do think it's rather about time, since everyone knows Mormons are quite musically talented, it seems like LDS-central would be a prime location for decent singers (not to mention the obligatory weirdos that AI just loves to exploit, at the risk of actually letting more good singers through...).

For those who don't know, this will be my second time auditioning for American Idol (in 2005 I decided Las Vegas wasn't an unreasonable distance to travel for auditions), and while it was fun before, I didn't make it past the first round. This time I am pretty much resigned to the idea that none of us will make it past the first phase (of which there are reportedly several, before you actually audition in front of the three famous judges), but they are here, so we are definitely going.

As for me, I'm kind of tired of auditioning for everything and winning nothing. Maybe this will be my turn! Whatever the case, this will be my last chance to audition for AI, since the age ceiling is 28. It's now or never!


  1. i know what you mean... i really wanna audition this time too but i know i suck... but i don't suck enough to get through...oh well. good luck!!

  2. None of us will make it?! Where's the faith? Surely one of us will at least make it past the first round. Hopefully. But it shall be fun none the less.

  3. Hah, old! (I can say that since you are almost a month older than I am.) I keep hearing that 28 is the ceiling and I think, that's not too bad, and then I realize that I'm almost there! Yikes!
