Tonight’s episode is why I have a love-hate relationship with American Idol. If the girls are supposed to be far superior to the boys this year, why only dedicate an hour to show the “best Hollywood solo performances” ever? Correction. Nigel only gave them 3/4 of the show and allotted some time for the boys’ Top 20 eliminations and sing-off.
Speaking of sing-off, why are the judges putting two poor girls and guys up against each other to determine the last spot for each gender? I’m sure this could’ve been achieved without torturing the contestants one last time. Sometimes the show can be so cruel. I digress.
What Nigel did show was pretty effin’ amazing. Based on what they showed tonight, it’s clear that production has favorites and trying to pimp them hardcore. Not that I mind, because for the most part, I’m loving the girls they’re showing, especially Angela Miller. All I have to say is “WOW“. Check her performance below along with the others, including the aforementioned sing-offs.
Can you believe we’re already into week three of the auditions. January just flew by so fast. Pretty soon, we’ll be crowning the winner of the 12th season of American Idol.
On Wednesday night’s episode, the happy foursome were in San Antonio and Long Beach. I’m so glad they split the two-hour episode between two auditions cities. I really enjoyed last Thursday’s night fast-paced one hour show. When producers only have a limited time to air auditions, they tend to show the more memorable ones and less of the jokers looking for their
fifteen two minutes of fame. In addition, Nigel focuses less on the judges and more on the talent.
With that being said, there was a bit of judging drama. Mariah was late arriving on set in Long Beach due to LA traffic, while Nicki was MIA for a good portion of the day due to a prior engagement with the American Music Awards. Depending on how you see it, folks in some instances were lucky to only audition for Keith Urban and Randy Jackson. Check out a few people who stood out during the San Antonio and Long Beach stops below.
