What NOT to do at your American Idol Audition

People always ask me for tips when it comes to auditioning for American Idol. There is obviously no perfect strategy for making it on the show, but there are a few things that are sure to ruin your chances...
If you are auditioning, please promise me you WON'T do these things...

1. Blend in with the crowd! Make sure you don’t do anything that sets you apart from everyone else. Don’t have an original sense of style or anything...just blend.


2. Start at the boring part of the song and hope to make it to the best part before they cut you off. I mean, what sense would it make to start at the good part and show them what you can do immediately?


3. Pick a song that has a total of 5 notes in it. There’a absolutely no need to show them you have range...you can show that once you get to the live show.


4. Do your entire audition with your eyes closed. Really, is there any reason to connect with them? They’re just judges.


5. Act like you’re above it all. Seriously, you don’t need American Idol...they need YOU. It’s a wonder they survived that last 9 seasons without you.



***If you have any more to add, comment below. :-)
***Also, if you audition, let me know how it goes.

Love ya!
