Miami Auditions Jan 30, 2008
I am not shouting this from the hilltops or anything ...but I thought the girl who sang the Janis Joplin song named Shannon McGough was easily ..I mean EASILY good enough to to to Hollywood. It must sound very different in the room with the judges then what I heard on TV. And Julie Dubela who took on Janis Joplin wasn't bad either
Suzanne Toon from Clearwater Florida Sang I Can't Make You Love Me ..but she can
Natashia Blach from way out in Fort Collins, CO did an absolutely AMAZING "At Last," by Etta James
Ilsy Lorena Pino from Miami, FL sang "Unfaithful," Rihanna
Ramiele Malubay, did it all with Aretha Franklin Soul.
Syesha Mercado's did Aretha proud as well with Think / Freedom (I never heard the song called that..I thought it was just THINK)
Robbie Carrico flat out ROCKED on Skynard ...and don't be surprised if he is a top 10.
Corliss Smith could inspire as well.
Brittany Wescott has a good combination of voice and the rest of what it takes to be a star.
Omaha Auditions Jan 29, 2008
NEBRASKA ?????? ok
I for one can't wait to see singing wrestler goth chick Sarah Whitaker come off the top rope and body slam Seacrest on the finale.
the guy who sang amazingly but couldnt remember the words
Jason Rich: Farm boy who could not remember the words but sounded great. Simon has NEVER been this forgiving for anyone in any situation ever period.
Rachael Wicker: Hey ..who doesn't love a hot chick that can kick your butt at arm wrestling and then blow the roof off with her voice.
Samantha Sidley: "don't know why i didn't come." SOUNDED AWESOME.
David Cook: Inspired by Daughtry means AI fans got a clip of Daughtry before the rocker in a sweater belted out Bon Jovi.
Angelica Puente: Her dad said Ass on TV ... WHY do I feel like Beavis and Butthead reporting this fact.
Leo Marlowe: The smallest most boringest town ever ...or something like that he said....not good for the votes when you diss your hometown...even if it is 200 votes.
LET MY PEOPLE GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
"Go Down Moses" James Lewis
"...you are my brother!" Renaldo Lapuz
"No Sex Allowed" Milo "Old Guy" Turk
Well here we are and twoweeks into the season ..who is the favorite or favorites ?
Kristy Lee Cook Amazing Grace Indeed
Chris Watson--Hunk ???
Junot Joyner I guess thats why the call it a good voice !
Carly Smithson blew the judges away. But she is really not an amateur.
Katie (Kady) Malloy (18, Houston, TX) is the early favorite as "the best we've seen so far" from Simon. She impersonates everyone!
Alaina Whitaker (16, Tulsa, OK) was my favorite ..doing Faith Hill.
Drew Poppelreiter -Isn't one George Strait in the world enough ?
Colton Swon from Oklahoma gave it a good country boy go at it.
Pia "Zpia" Easley (24, Chicago, IL) Nice Gladys Knight
Kyle Ensley (21, Valiant, OK) wants to be a politician AND an Idol.
Jessica Brown (24, Longview, TX) is a former meth addict turning her life around
Kayla Hatfield (24, Campbell, TX) was in a crash and is lucky to be alive ..possibly one of the most sympathetic "you are going to Hollywood's" ever
Joey "Biggest Loser" Catalano -I have to say ...was it to him that Simon said go get some food ? Would you say to a reformed drug addict..."you are going to Hollywood ..go get some drugs ?"
Angela Martin - Big underdog factor ?
Melanie Nyema Taylor Hicks former backup singer who has already outsold him.
Jose Candelaria Keep an eye on this one.
Beth Stalker -Name will be remembered
