American Idol - Texas Style

Last night the American Idol judges were listening to hopefuls from Dallas, Texas - the city where they discovered Kelly Clarkson. Did they find the next American Idol here as well? Perhaps. I liked several last night: Jessica Brown, Alaina Whitaker, Kady Malloy (from Houston!), Kyle Ensley (yes, I know he's a dork, but so was Clay Aiken!), Colton Swan, and Drew Poppelreiter (for a more detailed re-cap of last night's show, head over to Valtool's Box).

Once again we saw the really bad, the really strange, and the downright scary. Why oh why do people subject themselves to such ridicule just to be on TV? It's no wonder the judges get so cranky, with all they have to weed thru to find a handful of hopefuls to send to Hollywood!

Next week: San Diego

Don't you think if you collected your fingernails, you'd keep that a secret? Don't you think you'd hope you could be memorable for some less creepy reason?

And the girl who was in the car accident (I can't remember her name)? I was so surprised Simon said yes.

cjh - I think she was trying to channel Brenda Leigh Johnson from The Closer! I was surprised Simon said yes, too!

And the fingernail guy? That's just gross. Please keep that kind of stuff to yourself, people.

Those people know they're weird - they just figure it's a way to be on TV. I just don't understand why the people who produce the show need to subject those of us who are normal to weeks of watching them before they finally get to Hollywood!! I mean, one or two nights I could understand, but not 6-8 hrs. of those nuts. Altho, some of the expressions on Simon's face are priceless.

I agree Bubba's Mom. As a matter of fact, Bubba's Sis & I have been saying for the past few seasons ENOUGH of the auditions. Take us straight to Hollywood Week and show us more of that.

Interesting tidbit on fingernail boy. He is a friend of Chris Sligh, the 10th place funny guy who looked like Jack Osbourne (Ozzy's son). There's a link to Sligh's blog over on my blog.

I remember Chris Sligh - he had a great voice!
