American Idol hopefuls audition in Houston

Lines began forming at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston at 4:00 a.m. as contestants prepare to take their shot at becoming the next American Idol Tuesday morning.

The lines grew longer and longer as the morning persisted and we were able to talk to many hopefuls, even two coming from the Crossroads. Jaclyn Gonzales, coming from our very own Victoria and Jazmine Harris, from just down the road in Bay City.

Coming from all over the great state of Texas, ranging from 15 years of age to 28, all with different backgrounds and experiences. We were able to see and speak with the excited contestants that lined up to compete. All morning long this high-energy crowd didn’t let their nerves interfere with their moods. They broke out into song multiple times, with everyone joining in, a truly magical morning in Houston! At 7:30 a.m. the doors opened and after anxiously waiting hours, the singers filed in the G.R.B. Convention Center to find out their fate.
