American Idol 8 Casting Call

Who will follow in David Cook's footsteps to win the next coveted American Idol title and a major recording contract? The eighth season of American Idol kicks off on July 17, 2008, so start warmin' up your vocal chords!

Audition Checklist

If you're 16 to 28 years old, then you're eligible to audition for AI. But those of you who are under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and bring a completed Guardianship and Medical Authorization for Minors form, which you can download here. As well, bring two pieces of identification, like a birth certificate and a school ID card, and a completed Release form that you can download by clicking here. Be prepared to sing a song of your choice, but it must be a cappella (without music). If Simon, Paula and Randy like you, you'll be called back and asked to sing a song of their choice - good luck!

    @rainbowpoptart  When I originally talked to my father, I was given the opportunity of good timing to bring it up. Luckily, there was no anger like I was partially expecting and I remained calm, which I definitely wasn't expecting. My fathers main concern was just worry and having seen other teens run away from something later getting themselves in trouble. He even brought up how he had run off at 18 and joined the Air Force, which I already knew. But, with this round, there is no perfect time to bring it up and he's always busy or we're having to do something so it's just very frustrating to find at least alright timing to bring it up, if that makes sense.

    My advice on this may not be the best because I haven't personally dealt with this yet, but... Parents, or guardians, get used to having their children around. You're [usually] with them for 18 years, which is a long time, so of course they - or in this case, your father - is going to feel like he's lost something very dear to him once you move out. To me it seems like he does truly understand that you're growing up. He just doesn't want it to happen. He knows that you're leaving soon - he just doesn't want it to be soon. Parents/guardians who are close to the children usually feel that way. If you're really so concerned, talk to him about it again, in a similar way you have done already. Or perhaps just a "Wow, my birthday is just around the corner". Once you do move out, visit him as frequently as you're able to and feel like. I'm sure he'll appreciate it, and it'll help you maintain a close relationship with him.
