Oh Dear Fried Food Lord, American Idol Auditions Are On Opening Day of The State Fair

This news should strike fear in the fried hearts of many: American Idol will hold auditions for the new season at our great State Fair of Texas on September 26th and 27th-- the first two days of the fair.

There is no prior registration required. You just have to be between the ages of 15 and 28 (See Official Rules), and show up to sing between 10am and 6pm on either of the two audition days.

This spells chaos. Cats and dogs living together. Mass hysteria.

This means lines from hell at all of your favorite fried food spots. This means a giant Ryan Seacrest is going to descend upon us all and make us buy nice suits.

The parking lot is going to look like this:

And of course, add to this the sounds of thousands of people thinking they can sing.

State Fair Pro Tip: Wait until September 28th to go to the great State Fair of Texas, y'all.
