Bradley Center American Idol Auditions July 19th

American Idol

The Bradley Center will be hosting another set of auditions this year for the hit show American Idol.
The downtown Milwaukee arena was chosen as a host city for the tenth season of the show. The show was last here in January for their ninth season. The previous year, Milwaukee native, Danny Gokey, was a finalist on the show. He wowed judges and audiences in the early rounds with original songs about the untimely death of his wife. Chris Medina performed at the 2010 Milwaukee auditions. He came close to matching the success of Gokey, also singing about his wife.

The Milwaukee auditions were also made famous when judge Randy Jackson and Molly DeWolf Swensen’s attempted high-five went awry. This was before Swensen began her rendition of “Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay”. She made it into the next round, but did not let Jackson forget about the mishap.

Registration for the event begins at midnight on July 19th. Lines have been long in the past, and this year the center won't allow overnight stays, so make sure to get there early.
