American Idol


So my dear sweet husband has this crazy idea that I am good enough to try out for American Idol. He got the day off of work, got a babysitter and by the way didn't tell me until last night that we were going on Tuesday to audition. So I am asking for some help finding some music to sing. If anyone has any ideas please send them my way!

Sing something recent, so the judges don't peg you as an "old" singer. Also, don't sing anything that was originally sung by Whitney, Mariah, Celine or any other uber-powerful singer. They will just compare you to them. And don't sing anything too popular because chances are they have already heard it 1000 times that day and will be sick of it. As far as a particular song, just pick something that fits your voice. Make sure if you sing country, you stick to it because they will think you are a country singer.... Wait, I guess I must watch a little too much American Idol. GOOD LUCK!!!

OH wow, how exciting. Sorry I can't help with a particular song at the moment. They have let people through that sing things like Amazing Grace or some Americana type songs.
Good luck to you. If I think of anything better I'll leave another comment.

That is so exciting! As for songs, your friends had good advice! The only thing I would add is to sing something that shows them your range! Good luck Amanda, you'll do great!

P.S. How did Aimee's photoshoot stuff go last Saturday? I wish I could have been there.

That will be sooo fun! I think that anything you feel comfortable singing will be great. Good luck! p.s. you asked where I got my background, I got the paper from shabby princess, then designed the background myself :).
