Mary Anne Perry: A Confession To Make

OK…I have a confession to make.

I am an American Idol junkie.

I LOVE IT! I have watched every season since the beginning. Admittedly, some seasons have been better than others. I love it all; from the auditions to the finals.

So, this Wednesday, you know where I’ll be when American Idol Season 13 debuts — right in front of my television. I make plans around the show. Pathetic? Maybe. But I LOVE IT!

Maybe one of the reasons I love it so much is because when I was 20 yrs old, I participated in a similar competition and made it to the semi-finals! I auditioned for “The Great American Screentest” on a whim. I entered the acting competition. I wound up being one of 25 people chosen from 13,000 to participate in the semi-finals in Dallas, Texas! I was also given $1000.00 and an all-expenses paid 10-day trip to Dallas for me and a guest.

I wound up making a great group of friends and we had a ball. Even though I didn’t make it to the finals, which were broadcast on the USA network, it is an experience that I will never forget.
