    I don’t really see the point, it’s still just another singing competition :\

    Cool… but what’s it got to do with Bieber?

  • Anonymous

    actually, 5/6 of the 15 year olds that audition will be 16 by the time for the finals comes around, so they’ll have their permit or be able to drive.

    plus, just because someones 16 or 17, doesnt mean that they necissarily have a license.

    so your point doesnt make sense.

  • Disdain

    Bye!

  • xCyrusBieber

    I would love to audition, but nooooo, im from Mexico-.- F**k

    SPOILER ALERT FOR PRETTY LITTLE LIARS.

    okay so the first A, the one until the book Perfect, is Mona, Hanna’s best friend. and then she gets killed after fighting with spencer. then they move on with their lives. and then a new A comes. this one is ALISON. alison was NEVER dead. the alison that the girls were BFFs with was actually alison’s clinically insane twin sister Courtney, who impersonated Ali, causing Ali’s parents to take ALI to COURTNEYS mental hospital. Then Ali came back and killed Courtney, and that’s whose body was found. Ali never died. Then in the end of the last book, she tries to blow up the four girls but fails and ends up blowing herself up. however, due to the fact that nobody can find any residue of her bones, people don’t think she’s really dead. but i guess we’ll never know.

    No offense to all the 15 year olds but this is sooooo unfair. I almost auditioned last year, but wasn’t able to because i wasn’t 16 for like 2 weeks before i auditioned. It was stupid! Eh, i’m still going for it this year! :) but 15 year olds? There’s gonna be a lot of unnecessary drama….goodie…

  • iMystified

    boo..
    why can’t they have auditions where I live
    >:l

  • Anonymous

    And why is there a picture of Justin ?

  • Timber

    And the point of the Bieber picture would be…??

  • -JulieSmile-

    Good thing they stopped at 28 years old. Because my dad whose 40 wanted to try out when they come to New Orleans..
    Embarrassing right?

  • Becca.

    Eh I don’t like AI anymore. I only watched it when Jordin Sparks was on it, and David Archuleta was.

    And oh by the way Oceanup…..WHY did you use a Justin Bieber picture. He has NOTHING to do with AI.

  • merissa99

    People are saying they can find younger singers like Bieber.. reason for the Bieber picture.

  • sexxynickj

    why?? first?

  • sexxynickj

    AI is dead. When Simon leaves it won’t be worth watching. They are just doing this to get ppl to watch again. Maybe they will find the next baby Bieber

  • MileyManiacMania-a.k.a. the MMM-

    forget ai the show is gonnneeeee

  • taylorr.

    And why is their a pictue of JB then?

  • _kiwi_07

    i don’t understand why it’s not 18. you have to be 18 to do everything else, besides drink of course…well legally.

    kids under 18 should be focusing on school more than whining over how the didn’t make it to hollywood.
