When the headline reads "Exclusive" and "American Idol" you know it's good. 
One of our viewers, Gabe, snapped some shots at the "American Idol Season 8 San Francisco Auditions" at the Cow Palace.  He took his camera and snapped some photos, behind the scenes.  Take a look...
These first shots are from the Westin St. Francis either 2nd or 3rd round of auditions, awaiting the arrival of Randy, Simon, Paula and Kara.

Now we go back in time to Day 1 of auditions at San Francisco's Cow Palace.  Hundreds turned out on this cold, breezy, misty day.
ohhhhhh Justin Guarini!
