▶️ ‘American Idol’ auditions draws crowds in Sunriver

If you were around Sunriver Resort recently you might have noticed an uptick in activity.

And you might have heard some good (and bad) singing coming from The Great Hall.

“American Idol” held auditions at the resort and superstars Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry were on hand to judge the masses. (Turns out Richie and Bryan did a little kayaking and fishing according to Richie’s Instagram post.)

Central Oregon Daily’s own Anyssa Bohanan, a bit of a crooner in her own right, checked out the auditions and perhaps sung a few tunes herself.

On Friday, a reported gas leak caused the evacuation of the auditions location. Everything turned out OK, but some Sunriver firefighters used the opportunity to serenade Richie with one of his classics.

The judges seemed thoroughly impressed with the rendition.
