OK, I'll never admit this to the husband, but tonight's auditions actually made me miss Texas a l'il bit. Especially when I'm here surrounded by ass chapping snow.
Also, about tonights guest judge, let me just say YAY DOOGIE. Such a good looking guy. *Sigh* Too bad he's gay.
On to the contestants:
*Julie sucks as bad as she did 9 years ago. Her diction is creepy. And yes, completely annoying. Dude, breath control had nothing to do with it.
*Big Lloyd -- loved his Stevie Wonder audition. His song was a little slow for me, but I loved his voice.
(OK -- let me sidetrack for a minute. In my last post, Emily made a comment about how annoying the judges were when they said things like "a million percent yes" or "a hundred and ten" or....well, basically anything higher than a hundred. Let me just say right now, that I could not agree more. It is TOTALLY irritating.)
*Emily -- the chick that sang her original song. She was FABULOUS. Glad she made it. I think Simon was WAY off. She sounds as good as a lot of the CURRENT country singers out there today.
*Dexter -- first of all, quit winking; it's creepy. Secondly, you can't sing worth a darn. You sound constipated.
(OK -- another side note. I would like to officially nominate Neil Patrick Harris as Simon's permanent replacement as full time judge in the following seasons. He's awesome)
*Erica (the chick from Barney) -- she was alright. Not a knockout vocal, but she's got fantastic stage presence.
*Dave (the guy with Tourette's) -- He sounded really good. I was suprised and impressed.
*Todrick (the guy who sang with Fantasia) -- His original song was great. I loved every second of his audition. Great vocals.
*Maegan (with the cute little brother) -- She had a bit too much vibrato and she sang the song too slow. I would have actually said ''no'' to her if I'd been a judge.
(OK -- does Joe Jonas know how to say anything other than "yeah". The guy is a tool. Why is he here??)
*Vanessa (the girl dressed like a box of crayola threw up on her) -- Dude, "At Last" this audition is over. She was painful to listen to.
*Christina (the Lukemia survivor) -- Meh. I really didn't like this at all. She was boring, too slow, and really didn't have any presence. She'll likely not make it past Hollywood.
