American Idol Cheats
Ignore the music
In the beginning when you concentrate on the bars and the inner circle instead of the music your score will rapidly improve.
After finishing the Competition mode you will unlock the alternate male or female costumes for the gender of the character used.
Always have thumbs up attire
Find a look that the judges will give you a thumbs up on. Then, just keep selecting that look all the time, not changing anything
Try to pick the right outfit
When you have more than 20 wardrobes and dozens of combinations in between it is imperative that you pick the right outfit to sway the judges (especially late in the game).
While playing the game if two buttons need to be pushed together (to center the bar) remember that the game only makes you push two adjacent buttons and never opposite buttons.
