Fox's 'American Idol 6' auditions draws thousands in San Antonio
UPI News Service, 08/12/2006
Judges aren't yet saying who among the estimated 7,000 hopefuls passed festive auditions in San Antonio for "American Idol."
Talented Texans and folks from as far away as Chicago and Virginia lined up outside the Alamodome before dawn Friday, waiting patiently for their chance to impress the judges and get a shot at appearing on the popular series that begins its sixth season on Fox in January.
The San Antonio Express News said Saturday there were plenty of performers who appeared as interested in joining the party as they were breaking into show business.
