American Idol hosting auditions in Coeur d’Alene

One of the biggest reality shows in TV history has brought the show to the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene.

American Idol is hosting auditions Sunday and Monday. Contestants were invited from all over the country to audition in front of Idol judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie after undergoing two rounds of auditions before Idol producers.

The dock was buzzing with activity Sunday afternoon as idol hopefuls waited in two boats for their chance to audition.

Idol host Ryan Seacrest was walking contestants to and from the boat for their auditions.

Contestants could be seen playing guitars and singing while talking to Idol producers.

Among the 70 or so who will audition over the next two days are several contestant from the Pacific Northwest and at least one from the Spokane area.
