OK, so I'm an entire week late with this entry, but I'm here......and unfortuantely my DVR didn't record the LA auditions, so I won't be able to post thoughts on that. But here's who I thought deserved mention from Austin:
*Cory (the guy with the long lost sister): I thought he wasn't bad, but he went overboard with all the runs.
*The British chick that sang "At Last" was really pitchy and way too slow. Why even bother giving her a second chance? Her second song was still pitchy, but apparently every girl who cries this year gets a ticket to Hollywood.
*"Circle of Life" guy literally gave me a headache listening to him.
*John Wayne was good....he was really good. He had nice, smooth vocals and showed real emotion in what he was singing.
*The Seacrest Stalker - I seriously hope that she was acting, because if not, Ryan needs a serious restraining order. As far as her singing, I thought her voice was mediocre and she probably won't go very far.
*The Idol "power couple": She was annoying and couldn't hit the high notes. He was pretty good -- better than her, but neither one of them really blew me away.
*The cute blonde who sang two songs -- again not bad, but nothing spectacular.
*Casey, "The Scatman".....he was the best of the day, hands down. Really awesome sound.
So there you have it. I pinky promise to start posting these in a more timely manner.
