I was disapointed to have sent my son to Milwaukee he had 5 seconds to sing at Milwaukee. He did not make it and he has a really beautiful voice, he deserved a better chance to audition. He sings professionally and his voice is not a joke like some of the contestants that are sent to Holly Wood just to make ratings for the show. Many people try out for American Idol and really have talent but don't have a chance because some people are only picked to make the first show funny, so they waist thier valuble money and time that is not a nice american trait, what a shame!
