American Idol – Chicago Auditions – Are The Judges A Bit Fattist?
Chicago auditions was a bit poor on the singing front, as there were only thirteen golden tickets given out over two days, and none of the singers were that memorable. However I thought one girl was a bit unlucky to miss out and I bet it was because of her size.
Amy Lang came to audition and was hilarious, first she told Ryan Seascrest about how she had had a saucy dream about him, before she was sent into the audition room. Ok she was jokey and funny in a good way (she had a signature boob flex), but her voice was not that bad, in fact I thought it no weaker then some of the other singers they have sent through to Hollywood week. Hello what about bikini girl?
My opinion is if she had been slim and a bit of a hottie they would have sent her through, however because she was overweight meant she had no chance of getting through. I suspect this case of fattism is not a one off, on this show. Time and time again I have seen the attractive girls be given the benefit of the doubt and sent through.
Here is a YouTube clip of Amy Lang’s audition tell me what you think.
Another high point of the audition show was guest judge Shania Twain, she was natural, funny and gave constructive comment. Simon Cowell should consider her to be a judge on his US version of The X Factor. Best guest judge thus far.
Kara Dio Guardi who I did not mind last year has been vaguely irritating this year, however i think she is more in her element on the live shows.
