Exclamation American Idol Audition - June 3rd 2014, 03:47 PM

Hi guys.... it's Tay

I thought I would share with you all that I am auditioning for American Idol in a couple of weeks, and still haven't picked a song (or songs, maybe 3), to use to try out with. I don't know if anyone has really heard me sing, but I have a very edgy, quivering, and sometimes broadway sounding voice. I have a huge range with a soulful alto voice, a reaching soprano voice, a belty middle, and a ton of vibrato. A TON. I'd PREFER power ballads, soft ballads, or indie sort of songs.

Artists I like which can all sound good, if this helps at all, otherwise I'll take any suggestions, along with artists that sound compatible with my voice (underlined)

A Fine Frenzy
Arctic Monkeys
Brandi Carlisle
Christina Perri

Death Cab For Cutie
Demi Lovato
Etta James

Fall Out Boy
Falling In Reverse
Florence + The Machine
Icon For Hire
Lana Del Ray
Lily Allen

Matchbox Twenty
Mayday Parade
Mumford & Sons
My Chemical Romance
Noah Gundersen
Panic! at the Disco
Rae Morris
Skylar Grey

Snow Patrol
The Killers
The Pretty Reckless
The xx
TONS of Broadway (Once, Next To Normal, Spring Awakening, The Last Five Years, Songs For A New World, etc)
Tom Odell
Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Good luck!! I love death cab for cutie!

Okay so from your list I like:
Etta James - at last
Demi lovato - skyscraper
Beyoncé - listen, love on top, if I were a boy
Paramore - only exception, still into you
Birdy - skinny love

From looking at your vocal abilities songs you could try:
Sarah something - arms of an angel
Avicii - addicted to you
Avril lavigne - everybody hurts
Sia - breathe me
The band perry - if I die young
P!nk - perfect
Tom Odell - grow old with me, another love

Just a few suggestions, let us know how you got on

Thank you much! I was already considering If I Were A Boy by Beyonce, I love the song just not the singer too much And I was considering At Last as well

Oh damn, I totally forgot Sia on my list! Our voices are very compatible, yes, so considering a song of hers as well

Thanks so much, I'm auditioning June 18th in Minnesota so fingers crossed!

Emily gave some fantastic suggestions so I'm not really sure what to add. However, I just wanna say that I really hope you get it! It's really cool and exciting that you're auditioning for such a popular show, this could turn out to be something big. Be sure to keep us updated.

Good luck, you're gonna do awesome.

Like Serena said, I have no clue what songs to offer you, but I'm super excited that you're doing this. Best of luck, and you'd better keep us updated! I really hope you make it in.

Good luck. They may ask you to perform more than one song so keep that in mind. Just something that showcases the type of genre of music you love best and showcases your vocal range and ability.

Me and my sister auditioned for AI ages ago and it was a nice experience unlike the horror stories that other people say. Just as long as you keep a positive attitude and understand the whole picture it will be a memorable event.
