  US wannabes go Pop Idol mad
Updated 30 April 2002, 19.20
ZoŽ, Will and Gareth
The Americans are getting a taste of Pop Idol mania!

Auditions for the US version of the show had to go into a second day because so many people turned up on Monday.

"There were so many people we had to cut the line and ask half of the contestants to come back," said a spokesman for the Fox TV network.

And nasty judge Simon Cowell will be back judging the show and no doubt reducing more wannabes to tears.

Search for a superstar


He'll be joined on the panel by singer Paula Abdul and Grammy award winner Randy Jackson.

Abdul said the judges wanted to hear someone with an individual style.

"We're looking for good voice, presentation and confidence," she said.

The programme will be called American Idol: The Search for a Superstar and will be broadcast in the summer.
