"Singers" to Forget
Brothers Derek Bacerott and Derek Bacerott
audition as a duet, but they should really just focus on the last part
of their shared name. They might not have been AS terrible individually,
but they don't harmonize at all, so we'll never know. At least they
argued with the judges for five minutes and walked out angry. Gotta love
the two-hour shows.
Ricky Jo Garcia's long nails are shaped into points. That is all that is worth mentioning.
In a montage segment called The Outlaws of Texas, Stefan Jones exceeds the pitch limit, Ongela Clark-Falkquay possesses illegal explosives (cause she sings "Firework") and Carolyn Jackson unl-awfully impersonates Beyonce.
claims a producer heard him singing in a bathroom and told him he
should audition. Of everyone who has sarcastically been told, "yeah,

is an angry, angry purple-haired girl. Her heavy-metal, double-flipping
off, light-smashing, screaming rendition of Adele would make Gwar

The Ghosts of the
Queen Mary come back to haunt the judges, and I'm glad they didn't print
anyone's name, so I didn't have to type them out.
all, 50 people from Long Beach and an undisclosed number of singers
from San Antonio are headed to Hollywood. I was pleasantly surprised by
the number of good singers who were featured, as we were relatively
spared from those uncomfortable moments that make you hate the audition
shows. No William Hungs or "Pants on the Ground" this time around. Oh,
and Mariah Carey has huge cans.
one more hour of auditions to sit through, and those are Thursday night
from Oklahoma. Is it just me, or are the producers hell bent on putting
some serious country flavor in the finals? Maybe they think it will help
a female win the competition.
Did any of your
favorites come out of these auditions? Who do you like moving forward,
and who do you think has the best chance of advancing? Tune in for the
final auditions and then get ready for Hollywood! As we happily learned
last week, one hour means heavy on the talent and light on the bad
American Idol airs Wednesday and Thursday at 8pm on Fox.
