Here's a shocker: Being on American Idol is really, really hard work. Well, uh, yeah. TMZ.com has published the AI contestants' schedule for this week. They have to work, every single day -- can you imagine? Insert dripping sarcasm here. Check out the basics...
Thursday: choose songs and style for next performance Friday: purchase last-minute wardrobe pieces
Saturday: meet and rehearse with mentors
Sunday: tape Ford-sponsored music videos
Monday: rehearse, rehearse, rehearse and rehearse some more
Tuesday: dress rehearsal run-through and live performance
Wednesday: rehearse for collective performance, prepare for elimination and then head off for a weekly good-bye party for the contestant who was eliminated.
I just want to know if they get to live in one of those swanky pads like they on the rest of the reality shows!
