American Idol is expected to roll into Bowling Green on Friday for the first ever "Small Town Bus Tour".
We talked to one auditioner who hopes her third time auditioning may be the charm.
"I just want to show them that I am more versatile. That I'm not just country especially since we're in a country area," says Sarah Jewell of Glasgow.
Even though she is a country singer, Sarah wants to "wow" the producers for the "American Idol" audition with something different.
"There will be a lot of people singing the same song. So, I try to stay away from those songs that i know people will be singing a lot of."
Since this is her third time auditioning, she says this may be her big break-- just like "Idols", such as Jennifer Hudson, did before her.
"I'd like to think that I can hold my own in country music."
This audition may be different than any audition she has been to before.
"I think it will be a lot more local people. It will be a lot of people that only get one chance to do this. So I think it will be pretty interesting and pretty great," she says on what she expects at the Bowling Green audition.
Tony Rose with SAM 100.7-FM says the next "American Idol" might be right here in Southern Kentucky.
"There's a lot of talent right here in our own backyard and I know when "Idol" rolls into town, they are going to be overwhelmed at, not just the amount of people, but also the quality of talent that they'll find," Rose says.
The "Small Town Bus Tour" is expected to bring a lot more talent than just Bowling Green can offer.
However, the Bowling Green Convention and Visitor's Bureau has told us "American Idol" has said if the date, time and location of the audition leaked early, then it could sacrifice the bus tour stopping in Bowling Green.
So since the information leaked today, it could be questionable whether they will stop here.
