AI- Atlanta Auditions

Now, that was more like it. Asia'h (I think that's how it's spelled) sang well enough to earn her sob story (not that *earn* is the word I want- it's horrible that her Dad died so recently, but the show trots out the hard-luck stuff too often to have the maximum effect), and the 16 year old with the adorable Great Grandma was amazing (is she my One? Maybe), and I liked the Biker Nurse a lot, if for no other reason than her reaction to Randy's stupid question about wearing biker gear to work.

I really wanted to like the glass cutter, and I might have if I had recognized even a note of the song he was singing. We'll see how he does with a familiar tune, though if he's going to be performing with his back to the audience, he's going to need better fitting jeans. And a belt.

Miss South Florida Whatever was annoying (*doo-doo*? Give me a break), but not nearly as annoying as the 16 year old who erroneously, and rather pitifully, thought he could out-snark Simon. And I'll bet Eva was serious, poor girl. My guess about homeless-car-boy with the variable English accent is that he doesn't have what it takes to pass through the next round.

More bad auditions tomorrow night, but maybe a few gems as well, and then, finally... finally.... Hollywood.

I'm glad that this week is the last week of auditions. Although, my least favorite part of the season is Hollywood week. I think we've seen the last of homeless car boy. And I LOVED Asia and the rocker nurse. I hope the rocker nurse at least makes it to the top 20 if not further.
