Vanessa Hudgens: Desperate To Audition For American Idol

Vanessa Hudgens has revealed that she was desperate to audition for “American Idol” but gave up the desire after signing up for the “High School Musical” film.


The 18-year-old singer-actress said that, in 2004 she was too young to follow her reality television talent dream, as the minimum age required for auditioning was 16 years.

And, in the meanwhile, a role in the Disney teen movie franchise appeared and she jumped at the offer.

She revealed, “I was 15 at the time … and you had to be 16 to audition. So I thought, ‘One more year.’”

She added, “Then, when I turned 16, High School Musical came along and I got to do it. So I thought I’d skip on American Idol.”
