The Next American Idol...


isn't going to be me. HA HA. Today I tried out my vocals to the rest of the crowd in Salt Lake City. Mike and I woke up at 3:00 am to get ready and leave to be there at 5:00 am (the time they told us to be there), but to our suprise we just stood outside for 3 hours waiting for them to let us in and take our seats. Don't let the show fool you, this was not a fun experience. In fact it was the worst. They make you scream and shout every five seconds, act excited, sing these stupid crowd songs, all the while you are just trying to stay awake cause you only got about 3 hours of sleep and you haven't eaten for about 8 hours cause you are so nervous and scared, and you haven't had anything to drink cause you are so incredibly scared that you will wet yourself the second you get up to sing. Well I got down to the floor to audition at about noonish and they told me no. I don't blame them! I was shaking in my boots, holding my pee that I swear was about to come spilling out of me the second I opened my mouth, and I was so nervous I didn't even sing very well. I guess it just wasn't for me. I think Heavenly Father has another plan for me...like having babies and moving to Washington. Ha ha, I only wish Mike would approve of that plan. Maybe one day soon. Love to you all!

Darn! That would have been so much fun to see you on the show. I know that you have a good voice so bummer that they didn't get to hear it. My cousin tried out a few years ago and made it through the next round meaning she had to sing a couple times for different producers. Then she lost her voice from being out in the cold so long. Well all you can say is it was an experience.

It's alright! You have a beautiful voice and that's all that matters. The way they do the auditions is totally stupid! I have another friend that went and she has an amazing voice too! Now you won't ever say, "What if I had auditioned." You're a doll!

I was thinking about you yesterday when I read that on the news and I was going to text you a good luck message but I dropped my phone in the toilet and lost my numbers. Anyways, I'm sorry it didn't work out. I would have watched the show but not now. :) I am glad you had the guts to go up there! !! Go YOU!!

Haha Al I was thinking about you and wondering if you tried out! I am so disappointed, I was sure they would let you through! Way to go for giving it a shot though!

They didn't accept you because they wanted to give everyone else a fair chance! Sometimes I listen to the Radio and I think, If this person changed their apperence so they wouldn't be recognized, and tried out, they'd totally say no! like sugarland! I hate them, I'd like to see them get past American Idol judges! AUh!
