If You Want To Experience American Idol Go To Disney Orlando.
If you sing a little karaoke you may want to consider this. There is now an American Idol attraction at Disney in Orlando, Florida.

Hopefuls will go through the audition process and perform in front of a live crowd, just like their favorite contestants on the TV show.

Wannabes will sing for a Disney’s Hollywood Studios producer for the chance to be cast in a theme-park show.

The person with the most votes will compete in an end-of-day Grand Finale show at Walt Disney World, and the winner of the Grand Finale show will receive a guaranteed reservation for a future regional stadium audition.

I think I will just stick to It’s A Small World After All ride.

Interview With So You Think You Can Dance Judge Jason Coleman on Fame the Second Time Around

In a refreshingly honest interview Jason Coleman how fame the second time around is much more humbling.

Exerpt below:

He has grown more confident personally and professionally in the eight years between judging Popstars and So You Think You Can Dance Australia. His first appearance on a TV judging panel was on Popstars — the reality series that catapulted Sophie Monk to stardom in manufactured girl band Bardot.

Now as head judge on SYTYCDA, Coleman has hit his stride — winning new fans with his refreshingly honest and articulate assessment of the dancers on his show. “˜”˜I was at a more needy point in life when I was doing Popstars,” he says. “˜”˜I was not as confident in myself.

The downsides of fame is being public property and having two women proposition him in a nightclub. For the record he turned them down.

Also he said one of the producers wanted him to have a catchphrase for when a routine was good like Mark Holden’s ‘touchdown’.

He agreed to consider the idea, but refused the catchphrase offered to him. “˜”˜He (producer) said “˜how about you say That was W-W-Wicked every time you like a dancer’s performance?’,” Coleman says, rolling his eyes. “˜”˜I told them: “˜N-N-No way!’ ”
