American Idols Audition Tips 

Develop a strong image for your act - whether it's clothes / hair, a dance routine, your stage act or your personalities within the band, the pop biz is one of THE most image conscious industries in the world. 

Think what would appeal to your fans. If you're a heavy metal band, it's no use looking like a boy band ! Pop acts are designed to appeal to a teen or pre teen [under 14] audience so think what would appeal to that age group.

watch your breathing and Remember not to shallow breathe.  Do plenty of deep breathing exercises and low pitch vocal exercises.  Gradually increase range and volume without over doing it.

Remember how you walk in and walk out of the auditions.

Be mindful of this check list:

  • How are you carrying yourself?
  • Are you smiling confidently? 
  • Are the clothes you're wearing matching your personality?
  • Do you ooze professionalism? 

It doesn't matter if you agree or not, they will make a judgment on whether or not they like you based on these points even before you open your mouth.

If things do go wrong in the audition, don't panic.  Pause and take command of your thoughts immediately.   

If you need to, don't be afraid to speak to the auditors and tell them how you are feeling without sounding over apologetic.  

Also, in the event of an obvious, near earth shattering error: 

  1. relax

  2. calm down

  3. pause

  4. take some deep breaths

  5. regain your thoughts, control them and make them 100% positive 

  6. tell them you're going to do it again (Not try and do it again) and give it your best shot

Note: You can only do this if you are really good and you're well rehearsed.  otherwise constant errors in your performance due to lack of preparation and talent will make you fall foul of your audience.
