Only about 300 people attend 'Amercian Idol's Puerto Rican tryouts
UPI News Service, 08/04/2008
Only about 300 people turned out for the "American Idol" auditions held during the weekend in San Juan, Puerto Rico, El Nuevo Dia reported.
TMZ.com said that number bares a stark contrast to the 7,000 people who camped out overnight in Northern California recently so they could try out to be contestants on Season 8 of the popular singing competition show.
Thousands of pop-star hopefuls also auditioned in Salt Lake City last month, the Desert Morning News had previously reported.
