'American Idol 5' adds audition sites in Las Vegas and Las Vegas
UPI News Service, 09/20/2005
The producers of Fox TV's "American Idol" Tuesday announced two more auditions seeking contestants in Greensboro, N.C., and Las Vegas.
"Idol" auditions planned for Memphis were canceled after the city took on residents displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Producers had said they did not want to add to the burden already placed on city services by bringing thousands of "Idol" hopefuls into Memphis.
The North Carolina auditions will be Oct. 3 at the Greensboro Coliseum and a week later at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Zap2it.com reported Tuesday.
