joi emonie hamm july 16 2014

On Tuesday, thousands upon thousands crowded the streets near the Virginia State Capitol on Bank Street between 10th and 12th Streets in downtown Richmond for the American Idol Bus Tour Auditions. The lines of potential contestants extended close to I-95.

Contestants stood and slept in line starting at 5 on Monday afternoon to be the first to have their voices heard before idol judges. As I walked down 10th Street most of the contestants were confident and wanted to get the auditions done. All I could hear was folks singing classic rock, country and r & B songs and some original pieces.

Brian Robertson, American Idol’s Senior Producer said, “Confidence, Performance, Creativity and Stage Presence” were qualities that his crew were judging on at yesterday’s audition.

Joi Emonie Hamm, 20, of Richmond was the first contestant to receive the official Americal Idol wristband to move on to the next round of auditions. Hamm’s song of choice was “At Last” by Etta James. She stood in line since midnight and her patience did pay off.

Virginia has some great talent and for those who did not get an opportunity to move on to the next round -don’t give up!  Clovia “Miss Community” Lawrence
