From the concept picture, I think it's going where the ABC theatre was, although I can't be sure.

The youtube video seems slightly cheesy to me, too.

I wonder what happens with those who audition who are, well, less than stellar singers.

My reaction to reading that is 'I can't imagine wanting to waste a day doing that', but then I have no desire to be on AI either. I'm sure it'll appeal to a lot of people, though.

I can see this appealing to those that want to try out, but I'm not so sure about attracting an audience to listen to them. Why would I want to take an hour of my limited and expensive park time to listen to probably not-so-hot singers?

OMG!!! My first thought was Yippee!!! This attraction will pull people from some of the other big ones, meaning less crowds!!

But, then, I thought of my daugthers and thought OH NO!! How can you do MGM in one day if you're standing around doing this????

This would not be high on my list of things I want to do during my Studios visit. I doubt that it will last long.

I don't like watching the "auditions" on tv...so again why do I want to do this at the park for an hour? :roll: If it were up to me...I would think agian...no. no. no. What a wast of money.

Not sure about the "good" auditions at the end of the day.... Maybe I would do this if I had been to the parks endless times and just wanted something eles to do. I could see this maybe at Downtown Disney....

I'm not a big Idol watcher. So this has no appeal to me. I have a hard time imagining people wanting to do this at a theme park. But, if that's want people want to do, more power to them. Idol is a big deal. So, this could be popular. If so, great! Shorter lines for the things I actually want to do.
