The American Idol Audition Contract Is Insane

Redditor IfGirWasAGinger posted a portion of the American Idol audition contract, and boy is it a doozy. Want to be famous? Just sign right here.

1. Here is the original audition contract, and some choice bits from it:

2. “I understand that I may reveal, and that others may reveal, information about me that is of a personal, private, embarrassing or unfavorable nature …”

“Do I fart in my sleep? Yes, but what does that have to do with … The auditions over?”

3. “… Information may be factual and/or fictional.”

“You want to say that my grandfather was Benjamin Franklin? That doesn’t even make sense.”

4. “(The show) … May expose me to public ridicule, humiliation or condemnation.”

“Can you edit that out? Thanks.”

5. And that the producers have these rights, “throughout the universe in perpetuity.”

“We own you, dawg!”

6. Any comment, former judge Paula Abdul?

That’s what we thought.
