Well, American Idol recently wrapped its third season, where fan favorite Fantasia Barrino was crowned the show's newest star (alongside past winners Kelly Clarkson and Ruben Studdard). If you've ever been watching the series and thought that you could do that, you're in luck! The American Idol crew is heading out on the road over the next several months, and with any luck, it could be you coming face-to-face with Simon, Paula, and Randy!
The American Idol 4 Audition Checklist
As always, you must be between the ages of 16 and 24 to be eligible to audition. It's not enough to just say that's how old you are - the staff at the auditions will be expecting to see legal documentation (something like your birth certificate or drivers license will do fine). If you're under 18, you must be accompanied by a legal guardian (this is very important)! If you're coming to an audition from out of town, you have to make sure you're able to stay there for five days in case they want to see you again. If you've seen the show, you know that you're going to have to sing a tune without any musical backing!
Where You Can Audition for American Idol 4
Okay, the dates haven't been nailed down yet, but we do know that the auditions will be taking place in the following cities. Please note that this is just a preliminary list, meaning that there's a good chance the American Idol crew could be stopping by a city near you! Auditions are being held in several American cities, including:
You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!
Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :)
You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them? Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.
Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends.
If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.
