Let the "Idol" Auditions Begin!

8/8/2006 6:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Who will rise to the top and be your next "American Idol?" Who's "life is nothing but an awful song?" Season 6 auditions for Los Angeles kicked off Tuesday morning at the world famous Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, Calif.

Thousands of "Idol" potentials showed up at the crack of dawn to take a stab at their luck of 'going to Hollywood!' TMZ was on location and caught up with a few "A.I." wannabes - some shared their many talents - and some are (as they sing) "Out of their league once again."

Who will producers push through to the next round to actually sing in front of Simon, Randy and Paula?

I would like AI better if most of the contestants hadn't "graduated" from the Whitney Houston/mariah carey school of "singing." They rarely sing songs straight, as they were intended to be sung (especially the classics), and their style is overly theatrical. However, there are some nonwinners who look like they belong on a stage, and once winners dump the AI style, they look like they have a future (eg Clarkson). I rarely watch the show but definitely appreciate the opportunity it gives to people with genuine talent. And, yes, I think Simon is worth 3 of Paula and 3 of Randy, neither of whom seem to know how to give quality ciriticism which is what these contestants desperately need.

My daughter Devon will be trying out as soon as she is old enough. She is 11 now but will be one to contend with on that stage. I sang to her since the night of her conception, throughout justation and daily until she was 3 1/2. My baby girl is comming. Prepare for battle :-)
