The American Idol Audition Bus Tour made a stop in Tuscaloosa on Wednesday to give aspiring singers a shot at stardom. Fans and contestants began lining up outside of the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater around 7 a.m. CT with high hopes and dreams.

A few of our staff members came out to support the people of Tuscaloosa today and came away impressed with the turnout. This state has seen as much success as any in American Idol seasons past and there's no reason to believe that it can't happen again. We wish you all the best of luck as you pursue your dreams!
