American Idol Experience
From Disney's Hollywood Studios Wiki
The American Idol Experience is an audience participation show located on Hollywood Boulevard. It is based off of the TV show "American Idol" from 19 Entertainment, seen on the channel FOX. It is in the Superstar Television Theatre between Sounds Dangerous-Starring Drew Carey and the Sorcerer's Hat. The official Grand opening was Feburary 14th, 2009.
There are several aspects to the overall Experience of American Idol. For those who get to the park early and head to the back of the theatre, on Commissary Lane, right in front of the ABC Commissary, you will have a chance to audition to preform in the show. You must be 14 or older to audition and guests age 14-17 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The first step is an A-Capella to a song of your choosing. The judge will either give you some advise on how to improve, and/or send you to the next round. From here, you will once again have to sing in front of a judge, however this time you will have music, and words on a screen in front of you. This limits your song collection to a choice of three to five of the pre-selected list of famous Disney Songs and favorites from the Idol TV show, as seen below. From there, you are chosen as either a "guest performer" or an "Alternate Guest Performer," meaning if the guest performer does not show, the alternate will take there place in the show.
Than it's time to go to one of the many preliminary shows from throughout the day, where you perform in front of a live audience and they vote on who wins. The most voted for contests will move on to a finale show at the end of the day, with the winner receiving a Dream Ticket to make a reservation to participate in one auditions in the initial public round of auditions for the American Idol television program, giving them the advantage of coming at there time and not having to wait near as long.
