So, liret and I just secured a hotel room in Philly for the weekend of the 24th so that we can go audition for American Idol.

Because why? Because it's my last year of eligibility, and when I'm old and saggy and have grandchildren, and there is a cable channel #585747484 that plays all reruns of old reality TV and it is considered totally retro, I want to be able to tell them that yes, Grandma did try out for American Idol and make a fool of herself like thousands of people in her generation.

Hooray for future-granny!Tea.

Of course, the last year I can do it is the first time that I know of when they haven't had New York auditions, so we're going to the closest one, in Philadelphia.

I will be perfectly honest here. I am an okay singer. I am fairly pretty and have an interesting personality. And big boobs. And big hair. I think that there have been contestants on AI in the past that I could compete with, but I don't think I'm anywhere near the level of the finalists. I'm expecting I won't get through the first round of auditions, if they pick me to audition. I'm doing it for fun.

On the other hand, I want it to be a lot of fun.

I've already asked phuck, because I consider him my favorite expert on all things AI-related, but for the rest of you:

I have a fairly low, jazzy alto. I sing jazz, folk, and blues well. I have a few songs prepared already but if anyone has any recommendations for songs they think I should have ready in case they ask me for something specific? Please recommend!
