AI Tryout Tour begins .. ~
« on: July 20, 2004, 07:05:53 PM »
WARM UP: American Idol has announced its preliminary audition dates to find
the next William Hung. The eight-city tryout tour kicks off in Cleveland,
Ohio, on Aug. 4, followed by Washington, D.C., on Aug. 18; Orlando, Fla.,
Aug. 26; New Orleans, La., Aug. 31; Las Vegas, Nev., Sept. 12; Anchorage,
Alaska, Sept. 28; and San Francisco, Calif., Oct. 5. An audition will also
be held in St. Louis, Mo., date pending. Look for lines to be twice as long
as they were in the previous three competitions; AI has raised the age
limits for contestants to 28.

wait a minute............so you have to be 28 to even try out?????????????

If that is the case, I think it is a good idea to raise the age limit...but 28 is high...i think maybe 18 would have been better...

Am i reading this correctly?

What was the age limit before they raised it to 28?  Gosh, if they go any higher they might as well call it Middle Age Idol.  :()() :()().  I wonder what the judges will be screening for this time.  Because I think they got someone different with Fantasia.

So it is just for youngsters?  Isn't that age discrimination?  i wondered why no one older then a kid was ever on that show.  There are some talented older people too, sheeshhh....

i see their reasons on why they want 28 and under because the people they need to target are the teenie bobbers!  THey are the ones that buy the music.  So if they keep the AI in their teens, the target audience will take to it more...It's all about the profit there is to be made!

Oprah did her version of American Idol--the winner was a fantastic woman--can't remember her name right now--but she had an amazing voice.
