i'm going to hollywood week american idol

A few years ago I wrote a tongue-in-cheek post about how I would NOT be going to the American Idol auditions that were taking place in San Diego, because a) I’m too old and b) I can’t sing (not like Kelly Clarkson at least).

Well I’m glad I didn’t say I’d NEVER be going to an American Idol audition, because, guess what, friends . . . I AM going to an American Idol audition. In fact, I AM GOING TO HOLLYWOOD WEEK. Yes, you read that correctly, and yes I meant to write in all caps, because, I am SCREAMING with excitement.

The catch is this. I am not actually auditioning.

I have been invited to a special Hollywood Week event by the American Idol team in which my itinerary includes:

  • A special screening of the Season XIII premiere
  • A backstage tour of the of the Dolby Theatre
  • A spot in the auditorium behind my girl J Lo during part of the Hollywood Week auditions.

Being the UBER American Idol fan that I am, you can imagine how much I am freaking out over this opportunity. I am even missing my Kindergartner’s holiday show at school for this.

So be sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter on Tuesday and Wednesday this week to follow along with my Idol adventure and set your DVRs for the season 13 premiere on January 15th at 8:00pm on Fox.
