Check out our slideshow of all the American Idol Season 11 hopefuls.
Art Attack was at Reliant Stadium well before 5 a.m. to talk with the crowds that had amassed there to try out for one shot at fame as a contestant on American Idol. We have to admit, we got chills when we heard Ryan Seacrest say, "This is Houston, and this...is American Idol."
Here are some of our favorite hopefuls from this morning. Videography by Courtney Riedmann.
