SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Auditions for the second season of "American Idol" on ABC are set to begin, as the hit show begins its bus tour with San Diego as one of its first stops.

The show's bus tour auditions will stop in San Diego on Aug. 25. at Tuna Harbor Park, right next to the USS Midway.

Former "Idol" contestant Trevor Holmes sat down with 10News to talk about his once-in-a-lifetime experience.

"I was terrified going into it. In fact, I almost didn't go to the audition because I was so scared," Holmes said. "It was one of the best experiences of my whole life.

"You don't have to win the show to gain something out of it. I've gained so much traction from the time I had on the show, that now I'm writing my own music and pursuing my own path."

Holmes just wrapped up a songwriting trip in Nashville and has continued to write his own music.

"Don't think about it. Just do it," Holmes added.
