“American Idol” has gone online.
For the first time in the TV juggernaut’s history, singers will be able to submit an audition video through MySpace.
Potential contestants’ entries must be no longer than 40 seconds and selected from a group of songs, including “Ain’t No Sunshine” (Bill Withers), “Kiss a Girl” (Keith Urban) and “Copacabana” (Barry Manilow).
Videos must be received by October 6.
Fox announced that a “select number” of individuals who audition online will move on to the Los Angeles tryouts.
Tens of thousands of people have already auditioned at traditional, in-person sessions this summer in Nashville, Austin and other cities.
What do you think of this new component?
NOW! I think this is just a way to “replace the non-replaceable” Simon critiques are somewhat of an artform.
