Has anyone here joined American Idol or any other major singing competition?

Would you have the guts to? I was replying a post about karaoke. A girl joined a karaoke competition and made it to the semi-finals. I applaud her for her guts. I mean, I love karaoke and all but those are just for fun you know? Hanging out with friends, a few drinks and we start wailing our lungs out. But karaoke is different from singing competitions. I've been following this year's American Idol and these people, in my opinion..have guts; even those that can't sing. I mean, they know that they're going to be on tv and yet they go anyway (I understand that some just want their 30 seconds of fame but still..) I've never been much of a public person. Neither can I sing well. But even if I could sing like Mariah Carey, I wouldn't join any singing competition. Fear of being humiliated in public keeps me from doing so.

i tell my husband we should go to a bar and convince people that they are great at karoake just so we can laugh at them later on american idol. i love that show. last year when my son was a newborn and those horrible people we hear so much from were on he would just scream and hollar until we muted or turned the tv.
