NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WDRB) -- Auditions are under way for the 14th season of American Idol today, and people from across the country have traveled to Music City to try out.

Among the hopefuls lined up Tuesday -- Gabrielle Legg from the Shively area of Louisville. She says she was in line outside the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville early -- at 4:30 a.m. 

Legg says she's ready but was a little nervous. She says trying out for Idol is something she has wanted to do for a long time. 

"I've actually wanted to do it since I turned of age to do it, and since my grandpa passed away, I kind of wanted to do it to make him proud."

We also spoke with Megan Dailey from Alabama, who told us she was feeling "kind of excited, but nervous at the same time." 

Dailey says she has always loved music. 

"I've never really performed in front of a lot of people before, but the whole singing in the shower, singing in the car kind of thing -- so I just really want to get out there. 

When asked how she keeps her nerves in check, Dailey replied, "praying." 

Everyone in line Tuesday will have a chance to sing one song in front of a producer. If they make it past that producer, they'll advance to sing in front of an executive producer, and will then have a chance to sing in front of the judges next week. 

This is for season 14 of American Idol that airs in 2015.
