Host: Is there a set way of behaving at a musical audition? Jennifer Rutherford: Well, it depends upon the setting. Sometimes you’ll go to an audition and you can't even see the judges because you’re on a stage and the lights are shining in your eyes. And at an audition such as American Idol for instance, you can see them very well and it’s a very intimate setting. But in either case, I’d just come in, introduce myself nice and clearly, tell them what song I am going to sing and who it's by, and then just begin. Don't interrupt them if they want to talk to you and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. They’ll answer those questions. If you’ve been rejected, if you feel rejected, don’t take it personally. A lot of people don't get a part just because they’re too short or too tall, so if you get upset, it doesn’t really help to vent at the time. We’ve all seen the audition rejects on American Idol get the best TV coverage because they’ve said all these bleeping words and it’s just so unseemly. I think it’s always best to be respectful, be polite, be on your best you behavior.
