You know i was doing more thinking about this attraction..
it's a HORRIBLE idea. Sure, with a ton of viewers it seems like it would be most promising wouldn't it?
But American Idol gains viewers from a) the awful awful singers with rude judges and then eventually b) people genuinely care about who wins.
In this attraction, we get to see who: goes to the front of the line of an audition.
Uh, am I missing something? How is this BETTER than what we already get for free on television? (and even when it was free i didn't want it).
The concept: people audition behind the scenes to disney people to then try and make it into the live show. Those who get in, are primped up and glamorized back stage before they sing in front of the live audience.
Three Audience judges are chosen, but really can't do anything but give GOOD feedback because the initial weeding out of the bad singers was already done before hand! The audience members actually vote on who they want to move on.
So all this is is a show with guests who are decent enough singers that *might* make it to a REAL audition only to be turned down there... or moved on. Only we have no investment in who these people are!
And since the real American Idol is between 16-28 years of age, those 14 year olds who get through won't be able to audition for another 2 years!
Lastly from reading all the articles online, this is really about Jay Rasulo selling cheap merchandise.... for a show on FOX. This is a move that sounds like Universal would be all for, not Disney.
