'American Idol' myth vs reality

From ABCNews.com IdolDebunking the 'American Idol' audtion myths MYTH: There are enough auditions to fill an entire stadium. REALITY: The average number of auditioners is 6,000 to 8,000. MYTH: People wait in massive lines to audition. REALITY: Those massive lines are stock footage. Hopefuls wait in line to register and be screened and come back weeks later with a number if they make the cut to audition. MYTH: The majority of the auditions are freaks and weirdos. REALITY: The freaks and weirdos just get more screen time. The majority are talented people. MYTH: Many auditioners seem to pick the same song. REALITY: People who make the cut are instructed to download lyrics to a particular song and learn it. A coach runs them through it before auditions. MYTH: The judges do all the judging.  REALITY: Specially hired scouts and then producers screen all contestants before they ever set foot in front of the judges. MYTH: The judges do the judging once the contestants are in the room. REALITY: Yes. But not totally. Between the screening round and the actual filmed auditions, producers coach the contestants about what songs to sing, how to behave, etc. MYTH: The "bad" contestants really think they have a shot. REALITY: Nope. Producers tell everyone straight out, "some of you are here because you're good and some of you are here because you're bad." MYTH: The auditions that get screen time are random. REALITY: Producers are already in Hollywood Week when the auditions air; therefore, auditions are edited with outcome in mind. By Amy Angelowicz
