ALL ACCESS' very own MARY LYNNE O'NEAL is one of approximately 10,000 hopefuls throwing her hat into the ring for SATURDAY's (7/17) AMERICAN IDOL auditions in NASHVILLE.
MUSIC CITY is the first stop on the six-city audition tour for Season 10 of the show, which begins airing in JANUARY on FOX-TV. Registration for auditions began TODAY (7/15) at BRIDGESTONE ARENA, where the aspiring artists pick up their wristbands and tickets to get in.
MARY LYNNE, Assistant Country Editor in the ALL ACCESS NASHVILLE office, said of the experience: “The amount of people who showed up to register for auditions was insane! It was so hot outside, and most of the people I heard singing in line were really good. But I kept telling myself that even if I don’t make it, the experience will be totally worth it in the end. It just feels good to accomplish something that people have been encouraging me to do for many years. I’m going to just go for it and hope for the best!”
We'll have an additional report after MARY LYNNE, whose birthday is also TOMORROW (7/16), auditions along with many others this SATURDAY. Fingers crossed! “Good luck” wishes may be sent to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
