This photo is from today's American Idol auditions at the Georgia Dome. Robert Peters, 23, from Richmond, Va planned to sing  “Boss D.J.” by Sublime for his audition. He sang it for me and spoke to me before going in for his try-out. “My weakest thing in singing is eye contact," he said. "When I sing, I close my eyes when I really need to keep my eyes open and look at the people that I need to look at. My best talent as a singer is hitting the high notes. I like singing songs that have soul, but I think I have a lot to learn. I think soul is feeling, a lot of people can sing loud but soul is how you feel it, you just gotta feel it, you just gotta feel it. I flew from Richmond, Virginia to try out. I work at a Thai restaurant there. I saved up to come here. I hope to make it to the second round.”
