Seattle’s getting the full treatment this year. Simon Cowell is including our fair city as one of the stops along the way for “X-Factor” auditions in a couple of months. We’ve always been considered a good test market for the movies because with all the rain, we tend to be “indoor-oriented”.
And today, “America’s Got Talent” is going to cast their net into the Seattle talent pool to see what they can come up with. Victoria and I are going to the 6pm taping tonight at the Paramount Theater, which ought to be interesting. They’re doing a total of four tapings and since they usually have a “night” that they’re in Seattle, me thinks they’re taking the best out of the four tapings. I heard there’s quite a bit of start up and shut down, so it’ll be interesting to say the least.
Interesting wording on the “ticket” that we got. Of course, they don’t guarantee admission because they’re giving out way too many tickets. But at the same time, they don’t want a half-empty Paramount. They also have a little stipulation on there to wear “bright clothing”. Got a yellow shirt I’m going to toss off, but after another killer week at work, they’re going to have to take what they can get.
Will let you know about the experience tomorrow.
