It’s “American Idol” day in Richmond — the first time this iconic television show has held auditions in River City — and it sounds like the place is hopping. Meredith Newman wrote this morning in the Richmond Times-Dispatch (see About 1,000 turn out for ‘American Idol’ auditions:
About 1,000 people lined up in front of the state Capitol this morning in advance of the 9 a.m. start of the “IDOL Bus Tour Auditions” of the “American Idol” show.
The line doubled in size since about 4:15 a.m., snaking east on Bank Street and then wrapping around 14th Street.
The street is blocked off until 7 p.m. The auditions are taking place at Bank and 10th.
Good luck to all!
