It's the final season ever of American Idol. What a ride it has been. From Kelly Clarkson to Carrie Underwood. Even Taylor Hicks to Candice Glover.

Now, I know I can't sing, and yes I am bitter about that, but I know there is someone in the Grand Junction area with enough talent to get that Golden Ticket and to be a force in the competition. It's the last chance to become that American Idol, so my advice is to go for it. Take the chance. Because if you don't, you will regret it. Imagine having one of those 'Return To Your Hometown' episodes right here in Grand Junction!

July 10th in Denver at the Coliseum is YOUR shot. Patrick Lynn, Senior Supervising Producer for Idol will join us this morning to talk all things Idol. How to prepare for the audition, what to do while you're there, plus he'll share some of his favorite moments from all 15 seasons.

Let's get ready for a historic final season of Idol on Fox. With Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr., J-Lo, Ryan Seacrest and a new batch of aspiring hopefuls. I can't wait.
