@AndyShore Tonight’s auditions have been labeled the best of the rest. That’s saying one of two things. The first option is they had an extra night in the schedule so they mustered up the not as spectacular or funny auditions for one more episode. That, or the rest of the the cities weren’t important enough for their own episodes or didn’t have enough talent. I’m not sure which one is the better. It doesn’t even say in the info whether any of the celebrity judges make an appearance. I’m looking forward to Hollywood. That’s when the cream starts to rise to the top. I’ll pick my horses then.
9:02 “Hey everybody! Remember when we made that song go viral? Yeah…that was awesome.” Opening with a reminded of just how big “Pants on the Ground” got does not bode well for this episode. The producers are telling us they don’t even have enough material for tonight.
9:03 Jessica Furney is sucking up to Simon by singing a song he co-wrote. She didn’t need to. Side note: the producers are shoving more Posh Spice down our throats. Hoping the third time is the charm guys?
9:09 (One after) Amanda Shectman is an odd duck that does voices. Fortunately, one of them is a talented singing voice. Even better, were Simon’s diva “impressions.”
9:21 Not only is this the recycled auditions episode, but they’re recycling contestants from previous seasons now. They just spent the last several minutes in a montage of repeat contestants. The cherry on top was a 7 time repeat offender. She was terrible and super fake baked. I wouldn’t even give her a pearl necklace to match the one she was wearing.
9:32 6’8” Adrian Chandtchi called himself a big flower waiting to blossom. He also listed his nicknames as Big Man and Blondezilla. There is a tiny voice that comes out of this man child. Simon suggested he sounded like he had eaten a schoolboy.
9:37 Idol isn’t going to play the dead 16-year-old best friend card and then reject Didi Benami. She’s singing “Hey Jude.” Not my favorite Beatles cover, but she’s got a good voice.
9:39 New rule for the Idol drinking game. Drink whenever Kara speaks to a contestant as if they were a toddler.
9:45 Aaron Kelly’s aunt is his mom, in a non-incestuous way.
9:50 Kara just gave NPH a look like she thought she could convince him to switch teams, while grooving to a terrible audition.
