The American Idol gang grace the cover of next week’s TV Guide and from the interview inside, it sounds like the auditions this season get a little intense.
TV Guide Magazine: How have the auditions gone so far?
Jennifer Lopez: Last season our Hollywood week was easy breezy compared to this year, which was brutal. We had kids falling by the wayside.
Steven Tyler: Literally falling down.
Randy Jackson: Passing out, fainting.
Lopez:Kids were forgetting their words. Shaking in their voice. People we thought were going to be in the Top 10 were just crumbling. We were like, “What is going on?” I guess it was the pressure of seeing the previous season and how it was big.
