my son is 17 and wants to try out for american idol. He is good but not THAT good. I hate to tell him because he really loves singing and I don't want him to stop but he thinks he is going to do so well and get right in on American Idol. I don't think that will happen :-/ i know it sounds bad but I'm just looking out for him.

Really, percentage wise, most people auditioning won't get on the TV show, so unless he begs or cries to the judges, I would say it's better for them to let him down, rather than you. He's expecting the judges to be harsh, I'm sure.

 If he's not horrible why not let him try out?  He'll get a professional opinion and get it out of his system, plus it might be a fun experience. Most people who go on Idol don't make it so it's not like it would be a total surprise or let down for him.

 Maybe singing lessons? If he turns out to be good...great...if not, it will come from a voice coach instead of you. I think I'd let him at least try out for American Idol if that's even feasible. Can't hurt.

Let him go and see what happens.  If he gets rejected he learns a lesson and if he doesn't....hell that is even better. :)

A lot of people try out because their family and friends tell them they are good. If he isn't bad try singing lessons. Or let him try out and see what they say.

Why don't you try to get him some singing lessons. Tell him it's to better him if he wants to try out. If he doesn't wnat to or if you can't afford any then don't discourage him. Tell him it takes alot to be on the show and dont get discouraged if he doesn't make it. It  just means to try harder to get better.
