American Idol 4 casting begins in Aug.
Auditions for American Idol 4 will begin in August, Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest said on Ryan’s show yesterday. In addition to cities like Atlanta, New York, and LA, Randy said the show will visit cities such as Anchorage, Cleveland, St. Louis, and Las Vegas–and, as Ryan mentioned during the finale, Orlando, Washington, D.C., and New Orleans. Dates and locations have yet to be announced. Between “dawg”s, Randy also said, “No offense, no disrespect–if you’re a fan of William Hung, don’t try out.”
