Holy hell a lot of people want to be the next American Idol.

People came from places like Minnesota for a shot at being the next Scotty McCreery (yes, we had to look that up). Jon Gitchoff forwent sleep to get there early enough to bring you a glimpse at the scene before the adrenaline had worn off.
