For the first time ever, I know someone personally who’s auditioning for American Idol. She had to be at Invesco at 5:00 this morning, and who knows how long she was there. I’ve heard her sing a couple of times, and she has a good voice. But like Potok said of drawing, millions of people can sing.
I haven’t heard yet how it went; as grossly commercialized as American Idol is, it’d be pretty cool to have a friend in the competition!
