• Welcome to Our Idol Rules

    So, here it is... Our Idol Rules.

    You see, like millions of TV viewers out there we have been intently watching American Idol since season #1. And all the while we've been struck by one thing... it's not the talent of the performers, it's not the brilliant simplicity of the show it is... the gigantic mistakes made by so many of the people that try out.

    So many of these mistake are so simple... yet contestants make them over and over. And since we've grown tired of watching the contestants repeat these mistakes over and over we decided to list them here for all to see.

    So browse around, add your ideas too...just send them to ouridolrules@gmail.com.

Rule #17 – Lose the ‘tude

David Cook *Courtesty American IdolOne of the most obvious IdolRules that hasn’t been posted is this: You don’t have to be a diva….you don’t have to have a cool single-word name, and you don’t have to have had years of vocal coaching or singing experience. You just need to have talent. And it doesn’t hurt to be a good person either.

Rule #16 Don’t mmmm….uhh….forget the lyrics

LooserSeriously…this is your chance to become a star. You have one chance to get it right. Don’t forget the words to the song! Chances are that you are singing a classic of some kind anyway. It is not too much to ask that you know the lyrics on stage. Put the song on your iPod…glue the ear buds to your head and memorize the freaking song. It doesn’t matter if you are auditioning for the first time or if you have made it to Hollywood. Learning a song and knowing how to perform it is your only tangible responsibility.
