VIDEO: Ryan Seacrest Talks About His “American Success Story”!

ryan

Most people are very well aware of radio and TV host, Ryan Seacrest‘s huge successes. With experience on American Idol, radio, reality shows and a clothing line with Macy’s, this successful guy has much to be proud of.

Recently, Ryan sat down with The Lowdown’s Diana Madison at Diamond Bar High School to talk about The Grammys Foundation and Ford’s effort to help honor music programs in schools along with what he wishes his legacy to become. Basically his “American Success Story”.

In the interview, when asked about the secret to his success, he answered, “It is absolute focus and determination, and a love for what you’re pursuing. And I think they, as I did, will be told no a lot, and that no is something that you can’t always listen to, sometimes that no will become a yes, but I think that you have to find out something that you love, and pursue it with a lot of focus.”

And when the question about what Ryan wants to leave behind for future generations, this public figure stated, “I think the legacy of hopefully making people smile, hopefully they thought about something that wasn’t so stressful when I was either in front of them, or introducing somebody, and they smiled and had a good time.”

Check out the entire interview in the video below!

 

TI Exclusie: Trying Out For American Idol!

July 23, American Idol held auditions on Long Island, New York.  For over a year I have been wanting to go try out for one of these shows, The Voice, American Idol, X-Factor, etc.  This time, the audition was only about forty-five minutes away so I figured, what the heck?  Am I good enough to be the next American Idol? If I’m being honest, probably not.  But, I can sing and as I’ve been told, I have the personality for television.

So, I texted one of my best friends (and TI’s President) Kayla.  She was all about coming with me to be my support system and suddenly K-squared was waking up at five o’ clock in the morning to get to the coliseum in Uniondale, New York. (I’m the one holding the camera in the front, Kayla’s in the hat!)

Upon arriving we jumped into the second ‘line’ of anxious musicians hoping to get that lucky chance to sing on television.  I say ‘line’ because it was more of a heard of people just placed in a space confined by those metal gates.  We were all excited, nervous, and tired. We stood in that line for about an hour before we even got up to the front to get the paper work, wrist band, and ticket to get in.

Then, we were put right back in the same line.

Standing outside for those two hours, it was really hot, but we met some awesome people!  There was the fifteen year old who was going to be singing ‘Stop & Stare,’ the 26-year old who auditioned for The Voice last year and made it through the first three rounds of auditions, and the other 19-year-old with the perfect amount of rasp to her voice who was going to be singing an Amy Winehouse song, then there was the guy who was positive he knew me from somewhere.  Apparently I have one of those faces?

Around 9:30 we finally got the chance to take our seats in the arena.  We sat from 9:30 until about 2 o’clock before I got to audition.

Down on the floor, there were 8 tables set up with two ‘producers’ at each table.  Four singers would walk up to each table and one person at that table would sing a quick 30 second part of their song for these producers.  If you moved onto the next round of auditions you walked to the left after auditioning; if you weren’t moving on, you walked to the right. Whenever someone walked to the left, the entire arena cheered. There was such a sense of community among all of these strangers who were competing against one another.

Every so often, we could hear some of the singers as they belted a note or two.  One girl, who held a guitar and had a killer pixie cut that matched her jean vest, she sang and the rest of us got quiet just to hear her voice.  She was amazing. And then she walked to the right. We all yelled out our disagreement, but once those judges make their decision it is made.  She bowed to all of us as her cheeks got extremely red while we all cheered how great she was.

There were a bunch of other great singers that got turned down as well. You see, these producers are looking for something very specific.  A look, a voice, a song.  They aren’t just looking for amazing singers, they need the whole package in order to make great reality television.

But what about when I went down?  I was not nervous at all because this wasn’t my make-it or break-it moment in life.  This was for fun more than anything else, an experience that I would remember and could tell the story to my grandkids one day.  I got to audition with the fifteen year old and the 26-year-old that I had been talking to all day.  We went down to the floor, waited in yet another line, before we even got to stand in front of the producers.

They were really kind, they smiled as they took our papers and then called us up one at a time.  They were all great in their own way.  The fifteen year old will make a great audition to any boy band in the next two years.

I sang “Warrior” by Demi Lovato, and the nervousness didn’t kick in until I finished what I was singing.  The producer liked my choice of song, and smiled and bobbed his head as I sang.

Unfortunately no one from my new group of friends made it through the next round.  The producers told us to keep at it, we were all great singers but that they were looking for something specific. “Practice singing in front of people and come back next year,” was the piece of advice they had for all of us.  We thanked them with a smile and walked up.

I felt great! My first audition behind me, and the want and need to do it again.  So I’m not ‘The Next American Idol’ this year, maybe next year I will be. Heading to an audition like that was so fun.  I met amazing people, and did something not many people have the guts to do.

Wil I audition again? Absolutely. I will be heading to any open casting call next, maybe acting is more my thing?  And next year, when The Voice and American Idol auditions come around again, I will be in line again at six in the morning!

Demi Lovato Drops By ‘American Idol,’ Flexes Her ‘X Factor’ Judge Skills Again — See Pics + Video!

She may have been planning on leaving the U.S. version of The X Factor before it was cancelled, but Demi Lovato has still got it when it comes to giving honest and constructive feedback to contestants in reality singing competitions — this time, though, it was on FOX’s original star-making show American Idol that got a visit from the 21 year-old superstar herself!

Demi dropped by the Idol live performance show on Wednesday night (April 16) in Los Angeles, CA to hang with host Ryan Seacrest, mentor Randy Jackson, and judges Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Jr., watch as the contestants took the stage to perform in pairs (with one trio), and offer her opinion.

She might have had a ton of fun getting to put on the judge’s hat again, but if her excited tweet was any indication, she was most excited about meeting UFC champ Ronda Rousey who was in the audience for the evening. “Oh and NO BIG DEAL or anything…… Just takin a selfie with @RondaRousey,” she wrote, with an attached picture (see below). “HUGE fan!! Nice meeting you!!!”

Check out the video of all of Demi’s screen time on the show pieced together as well as a gallery of pics snapped on stage and off below now:
