Just announced, American Idol has added audition bus tour stops which includes Tuscaloosa on August 21st. The show’s website says specific location to be announced.

It makes all the sense in the world for them to pay a visit to Tuscaloosa, the home of the University of Alabama and an area loaded with talent as proven on the show through the years. I'm talking about people like Ruben Studdard, Taylor Hicks and Bo Bice. It was just this past season, American Christian Academy student Justin Oliver made it to Hollywood!

Additionally, hopefuls can audition at americanidol.com by submitting an audition video online. Entrants should demonstrate their stellar singing ability by performing a song of their choice a cappella. Videos are limited to one submission per person. Please visit americanidol.com for submission rules and terms and conditions.

You know what? This gives me the perfect opportunity to once again roll out the ‘Pants on the Ground’ audition. Yah, for some reason this clip never gets old to me.
