American Idol - Hollywood Round #1

Okay, so I sort of bailed on posting about the first-round auditions. Let's face it - it sort of all runs together. There wasn't really a stand-out whacky person, and we didn't really get to see many of the contestants who made it through.

So.

Let's get to Hollywood, shall we?

I think Barry Manilow has had some work done, don't you? He's my fave.

And now we're on to the first eliminations. I DO NOT get why people act like total fools when they're eliminated. Seriously, as Simon told young Dennis, "You just reinforced my decision...."

Y'all, this little Nathaniel with the earrings in his face? How precious is he?

Oh, and Anoop? Love him.

Also loving Rose from Idaho with the blonde dreadlocks. She's a doll.

I am SO surprised that Nick Mitchell came to Hollywood with this Norman Gentle schtick. The guy can freaking sing; why does he insist on diluting it with the foolishness? And somehow he got through to the next round.

Bikini Girl is ridiculously arrogant and I'm very disappointed with Simon for supporting her. Hopefully it's a joke. It's got to be a joke.

Still love Jeremy Sarver from Jasper, Texas. So glad he's through to the next round.

Love David Osmond, love Emily the Punk Rock Girl.

And here's where my closing would go if I had time to write one.

How was it for you? Do you have any favorites yet?

American Idol Season 8 - Week #1 Auditions

THIS is American Idol.

Can I tell y'all something? I was SO not into last season's American Idol. Maybe I'm getting too old; I don't know. I just know that everyone I liked left early and I lost interest.

So anyway.

This season we have a new judge, and I am SO over the drama about that.

Do I sound cranky? Dang, I don't mean to.

And on to Phoenix.

Poor little Randy the Rocker. He hasn't even sung yet and he's got my heart, the little crybaby. And his voice just wasn't there. Wah.

HEY, I thought there weren't gonna be as many horrible people this season. WHAT IS UP?

Did you see the guy with the star rhinestone earrings? I SWEAR, I had those same earrings in the late 80's.

Hello, Michael from Jasper, Texas. Like ya.

Bikini girl? HORRIBLE. And also rude.

I liked the blonde girl with gorgeous eyes.

And most important? I like the new judge. Cara. So far, anyway.

Yeah, that's all I got tonight, aside from stomach pain. Catch ya next time.
