American Idol – Orlando Auditions

This episode seemed to go really quickly, I was not sure if this was the Fox 8 editing of the show or this was it.

Just a few comments about the episode:

  • Kirsten Chenoweth was the guest judge, she is a little blonde cutie but she looked extremely thin;
  • They appeared to showcase the not so great singers, and the contestants with the sad stories;
  • I will confess I did tear up in the montage about Seth (the guy who looks like Forest Whittaker), and his autistic son;
  • I thought Kirsten as a guest judge neither added nor detracted from the panel;
  • Not enough Simon this episode.

Injera emailed me this article from The Daily Beast about the American Idol auditions. Yes we know the 12000 at the stadium don’t get to see Simon etc, but they to illuminate a few things you may not have realised about what goes on behind the scenes.

This did seem like a truncated episode. I adore Kristen but wondered where she went by the halfway mark. Kara seemed a bit desperate to “connect” with the cute guest judge – she was a lot better once she was the only woman on the panel, I thought. Wonder how she’ll go with Ellen?

Agree that there should have been more Simon – I sincerely hope this is not an indication of how the season will go: a gradual fading of the Simon…

It was a particularly unsatisfying episode. Kara does seem a bit try hard this season.
