American Idol auditions in Portland this week


So you think you can dance? And sing? And rock the pop fandango? Take thee talents to the Maine State Pier Wednesday where the American Idol tour bus will be parked from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. looking for YOU, next-big-thing.

The Fox talent show is cruising the country this summer looking for the next Jordan Sparks for its 14th season. So dye your hair pink, shimmy into that leather catsuit, call in sick from work/camp, whatever it takes to compete to compete.

To qualify arrive at the Commercial Street pier as close to 9 a.m. as possible. You have to fill out some paper work, details here, to enter the bus and blast out a tune. Note: no camping out.

From The County to Kittery, Good luck Pine Tree popstars!
