'American Idol' auditions held at Lakefront Arena


"American Idol" auditions were held Wednesday in New Orleans.

The doors to the Lakefront Arena opened at 8:30 a.m., but Idol hopefuls were already lining up at 5 a.m. for a chance to be part of Season 14.

A couple of years ago, local favorite Vernell Taylor finished seventh during Season 12. Taylor started out in Baton Rouge.

Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. will return as judges, and Ryan Seacrest will host.

Wednesday's auditions are the first round. Auditions continue in Uniondale, N.Y. on July 23; Nashville, Tenn. on July 30; and San Francisco, Calif. on Sept. 29.
