Colton Dixon Shares Advice For ‘American Idol’ Auditioners [AUDIO]
The “American Idol” crew will be in Charlotte, North Carolina tomorrow holding auditions for season 12. Now one guy who’s unquestionably a master of the “Idol” audition process is Colton Dixon, who made it through to Vegas in season 10 before being cut. Then got a golden ticket again last year finally finishing in 7th place.
So what is Colton’s advice to anybody who might be trying out tomorrow? “Calm down, breathe, and be you. Nerves are going to run through you like crazy, but let that adrenaline push you even further than you would normally go, pour your heart out in the first audition and show them your personality,” he says.
If you dream of being the next “Idol” and you think you have what it takes, come belt your heart out at one of the open auditions! Check out the dates below (all cities, venues, and dates are subject to change).
