That last guy who was super-hyped and will probably win- when they were like "That's unique" and whatever other crap all I could think was "Turn around- he's no different than the past few winners, excluding Scotty who has a country twist on the formula." There were also a few who didn't quite win. White guys with OK/weak/limited voices who are able to cover a bit with guitar playing. People who will not sell. It's not special or impressive to me in the slightest.

I'm going to need to break up with this show. I just can't do that again.

I'm still not a fan of JLo, but I realized last night that as a judge, she isn't that bad. She seems genuine (eh... kind of) and actually has some insightful comments -- unlike Steven, who keeps saying "beautiful", LoL.

Some memorable auditions from last night:
The lady who lived in the tent - LOVE her voice. And her quirky personality was great too. She's one of my favorites so far.

The brother/sister - I adored the girl's voice. I didn't get love for the guy. I mean, he was good (and kudos for him for picking a David Cook song!), but he wasn'tamazing. What's up with the judges begging him to audition? :eyeroll: I hate how he completely overshadowed his sister (not that I'm saying it's his fault).

Phillips Phillips (LMAO at his name) - I agree with px; he doesn't impress me at all. I see guys like him in bars and restaurants all the time. He has a good voice, but is overrated.

It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now, to give it the perfect ending, was a little of the Ludwig Van.

I think it's interesting that Colton Dixon is back. Let's see how far he makes it this season. LOL at the pissed off faces his sister was making. :laugh:

I wasn't too impressed with Phillip Phillips...until he played Thriller. He busted his string and kept on playing without losing his concentration. That was pretty cool.

On tonight's show, so far, my favorite contestant was that guy who did the Family Matters theme. LOL! Wasn't expecting that. :lol:

LMAO @ the planking girl. Did she really get a ticket to Hollywood just for planking?


ETA: I love your Clueless avvie Layla! :)

LOL, yeah, his sister looked mad! But I don't know... I have a feeling that the whole thing was just an act and was all planned out by their parents or something. Or maybe I'm just thinking too much about it.

His 'Thriller' cover was much better than his 'Superstition' one. I'm a bit confused on why they let him use the guitar... I thought instruments weren't allowed in auditions? :shrug:

Can't comment on the rest because I haven't seen tonight's show yet (West coaster here!).

If Steven says "beautiful" one more time I am sending him a damn dictionary.

I liked the "thriller" guy,but it's time for a girl to win.

Wasn't really to crazy about many people during the Pittsburg auditions - I did love seeing that one guy come back from last seasons auditions, he did improve & I'm glad the judges put him through. I also saw a spark in that girl who sang last.

LMAO. I thought the exact same thing. True, but I can't help but really dig him. I thought he did soo good, and after watching the Pittsburgh auditions, he's still a front-runner for me.

I thought his version of that song was STUNNING. So good. That's what made me like him. I'm really interested in seeing what he could do with other songs...

I liked that guy as well :)

I was seriously LOL uncontrollably at that planking girl. HILARIOUS! I was obsessed with planking a few months ago. I don't do it anymore but I still laugh at it.

Okay, I almost busted a rib laughing at the planking girl. How random, LOL! I'll admit, I was too distracted by the ridiculousness to pay attention to her sister.

I liked the Korean guy. There's just something cutely dorky about him.

I agree with y'all, the contestant who covered the Family Matters theme was good!

Travis (the guy from last season) - Didn't think there was anything special about him, but I'm not disappointed that he made it through. His story was terrible; what a bitch his mom is for abandoning her sons for another man!

LOVE the mobile DJ. Her voice is so sexy and sultry!

Totally agree with AllmyDays re: the last girl. I have a feeling she will go far!
There are so many talented females this season (and we're barely on the second audition!). I love how they're not just the typical cookie-cutter type artists. They all have a distinct personality and unique sound to them. Hell yeah, I think it's time for a girl to win!

Sorry, maybe I'm just slow today, but why the eye roll?

He seems like a nice, well-mannered kid -- which you don't see often these days, LoL. His voice is not good enough to win the entire thing, but good enough to get a golden ticket, IMO. :shrug:

First off, they need to stop showing the irritating, soul-less 15 year-olds and emphasizing how they grew up with Idol. It makes me feel old. And really, several of them should form a group, balance out each others blandness by having a variety of personalities to attract fans. Then one can emerge with a solo career, maybe.

Second, that douchebag with the pregnant wife who turned down a job to go on the show...seriously, bro? I wanted to crawl through the tv and beat the shit out of him. Such a sad statement on American culture, all these people seeking salvation through reality tv. And this idiot, with his idiot wife ("Once you have a kid you can't just pick up and go" though it's OK while she's pregnant, I guess that doesn't mean he's got a kid yet?!). Just...obnoxious. Selfish and obnoxious.

I've yet to be blown away- or even really interested in- anyone. Mostly I think I'm waiting to see what happens in the ratings when The Voice comes back.

Lol! Ugh, don't mind me. I should've explained more. It's nothing against him really, my annoyance is just with how that whole thing was structured. Move it along! It was OBVIOUS he made it and they drug it out so long. I get really annoyed with the obvious ones, sorry. LOL.

Besides that, he's good...I wasn't blown away though.

Well, I didn't get to see the San Diego auditions from Sunday due to that football game going on and on :angry: My DVR did not record the Idol show that followed at all. I'll find it somewhere...

The same thing happened to me. :angry: I'm so pissed off about it.

I did a search and found this. I don't want to post the whole thing though. Here is the link.
