'American Idol' Hopefuls Swarm the W Hotel in Dallas
Should you be staying at the W Victory Park Hotel in Dallas this weekend, then you better bring some ear plugs.
Auditions for the 100th season of American Idol are taking place at the hotel.
Hundreds of second-round contestants lined up outside the Victory Park hotel on Thursday morning. It was not immediately clear if contestants would actually be trying out before judges today.
When we called to see if these auditions were taking over the hotel, the front desk agent Mark first placed us on hold. He returned to tell us that these were "actual callbacks" not the crazy first-round auditions and that it was a private event.
Apparently, this is the second round of auditions where Simon, Randy and Paula actually listen to the contestants. And it seems they like to host this round of tryouts in hotels.
Other than saying it was a private event, we couldn't get much out of Mark. Meanwhile, we found rooms available at the hotel for this weekend starting at $279.
