Superstar hopefuls compete in Wichita for spot on “Idol”

September 5, 2019

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Hundreds of superstar hopefuls have auditioned in Wichita to appear on the television show “American Idol.”

The Wichita Eagle reports that the stop Wednesday in Wichita was the show’s first scouting visit to the city since it started 17 years ago.

Among those in line were hopefuls from Wichita, like Zephaniah Moore, an aspiring R&B singer who polled friends and family on Facebook about whether he should audition for “Idol.” They said he should.

Also in line was Sharane Calister, a 26-year-old singer from Des Moines, Iowa, who in the spring of 2018 placed 11th on another singing competition, NBC’s “The Voice.”

Those given the green light in Wichita will have to survive several more rounds before they get a chance to sing in front of the celebrity judges.
