All I have to say is YIPEE! And YA-HOO! WoOt!
I must confess I am a late convert to the AI-mania. I did not watch the first few seasons of the show, but got reeled in once the Alabama gang began to represent! You know Ruben Studdard and Taylor Hicks.
As all you fans know, the first couple of weeks provide us with non-stop entertainment as we watch the auditions. Many will say, including myself, this is the best part of the show.
Tonight was NO different than any other year. I found myself laughing hysterically, gasping and asking my husband, “do these people actually think they can sing???”
I also had the pleasure of listening to my son interject his comments at some of the more ghastly auditions. Some dude came out and began singing like a chick and Lego-Man slapped his forehead and said, “OH NO!” I think I snorted.
Of course there were a couple of awkward moments as we watched as a family. The Princess actually asked, at the right moment, “Uhhh, is that a boy because HE looks like a girl”. We had to explain to her that some people are
not right different and don’t bring folks like these home to meet the parents!
MOST AWKWARD MOMENT OF THE NIGHT: Someone’s daughter actually auditioned in a teensy-weensy bikini. And in true Hollywood style, she got a lot of air time in her slingshot and tiny-triangles ensemble.
Thanks to you, Hoochie-Mama of all Hoochie-Mamas, I had to explain to my 7 year old daughter why your choice of dress, or lack thereof, is not appropriate when trying to get something you want.
And you want to see some kids sent to bed quickly. Just have an African-American man come out with undue attention brought to his “Sexual Chocolate” tattoo.
And why is the remote NEVER handy when this happens.
All in all tonight’s auditions where highly entertaining with a few good singers headed to Hollywood. I look forward to the rest of the season!
What about you??
