It’s Hollywood week on Idol and gurl, it’s mean.
It’s torturous to watch these contestants throw their dreams out there to be terrorized in such a hideous and evil way on national TV.
Okay, so here’s the new twist this season. The dreamers who did not receive three “yes” votes in the audition round will have to sing for their life in a sudden death elimination.
The dreamers who received three “yes” votes will be allowed to skip this hideous round of evil and automatically move on thru.
The contestants are gathered in a well lit airplane hangar and are randomly called to sing. After we go thru the normal gaggle of mostly nervous singers with guitars, the judges divide the contestants into two groups. Two busses are waiting outside the hanger. One group, unknowingly, will be bussed to a hotel in Hollywood where they will proceed to the next round and one group will unknowingly be bussed straight to the airport where they will realize that they didn’t make it. How rude, evil and vicious is that! The bus ride to broken dreams. ROTTEN!
The contestants who’ve made it thru to the next round are now called to sing in front of the judges at The Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
Before I let you know who stood out for Fagsy I have to say I’m not liking musical instruments being allowed to accompany the singers. It’s distracting and it feels like they have an advantage over the singers who sing without accompaniment. I miss ghetto Idol back in the day when the singers only sang acapella. it was raw and real. Now it’s all just too glossy.
Okay, now let’s get to Fagsy’s faves of the night!
I loved that Majesty York, Brandy Neely and Spencer Lloyd are going through to the next round. Twin Selena (her twin sister was canned back in the early auditions), choked hard and was just awful. I don’t know why it was enjoyable to see her bomb. Maybe because she reeked of wanting it too badly.
Fagsy, stay on track! … Ew, okay. Where was I? Oh yeah, my faves …
Bria Anai can sing well but gurl, that lip gloss ain’t doing it for Fagsy. Wipe it off.
- Sam Woolf (Cute twink)
- C.J. Harris (This is one of Fagsy’s top 10)
- Briston Maroney (Good singer / another cute twink)
- Rachel Rolleri (Country smooth beauty. Should go far)
I don’t like contestant Munfarid Zaidi. He’s the contestant that was picked up and cradled by Harry Connick Jr in the auditions. He’s the Idol odd ball that they threw in for an extra pop of entertainment. He’s clearly not the next American Idol and I just don’t find him cute or funny. Boot ‘em off! I don’t like Emmanuel Zador either. Both got through but should be canned pretty quickly.
Sorry, I keep getting distracted! Okay, back to Fagsy’s standouts:
I thought Briana Oakley and Savion Wright were good.
Keith London … I instantly disliked. His “good reason” for singing “If I was a Girl (Boy)” was Pollyanna sickening. I hate when these kids have a “meaningful reason” as to why they chose to sing the song that they’re singing. We don’t care. Just sing the damn song. He got through tho.
And group day begins with all its fake, exaggerated and frivolous drama from the bickering, complaining and exhausted contestants.
Hollywood Group Round
- Tony Foster Jr, David Oliver Willis, Sarina Joi Crowe sang “Too Close”
- Harmonies a plenty. Nice enough. Whatever.
- David and Sarina go through. Bye Tony.
Ben Briley, Casey Thrasher, & Dexter Roberts sang “I Want it That Way” by The Backstreet Boys: This country boy band just wasn’t my thing. I didn’t think they were that great but all three made it through? Duh.
Following was a mish mash of groups in a weird fast montage thing. I’m gonna sum it up by telling you who I was happy to see make it through to the next round:
- Brandy Neely
- Andrina Brogden
- Briana Oakley
All great singers that should go far!
Spencer Lloyd, Megan Miller, Alyssa Siebken sang “Best I Ever Had” by Gavin DeGraw and were just hideous. Really bad sounding group.
- Megan Miller and cutie Spencer Lloyd make it through. Tuta-lu Alyssa Siebken.
- Madison Walker, Keith London, Austin Percario, Stephanie Petronelli, Adam Roth … all canned.
- Tequila Wilson quits the competition! She says she’s Gospel and that the competition just isn’t for her. Bye Tequila! Good luck!
- Matthew Hamel, CJ Harris, Caleb Johnson, Tyler Ahlgren sang “Too Close” by Alex Clare
- Caleb and CJ make it through. Matthew and Tyler go bye-bye and needed to go bye-bye.
- Matthew left pissed off and said “the judge’s decision was bull crap”. Poor baby.
- The group Collision makes it through to the next round.
- Clarity – Munfraid, Jena Asciutto, Sikenia, Allie Odem
- Munfraid, Sikenia and Jena advance. Allie is eliminated.
I wish Munfraid was canned. And Sikenia should-be sent home just for her “I’m sick” drama and her dumb little girl baby Fantasia like voice. She’s trouble I tell you.
Savion Wright, John Fox sang Royals by Lorde. Harry thinks John is uncomfortable and he get’s the big ole Idol ax! Tears were flowing as Savion feels like he’s on his own now with out John Fox. Awwwww so cute.
Jessica Meuse, Nica Neshae, Stephanie Hanvey, Cara Watson sang “Single Ladies”
What a mess! All of them looked like cheap whores and sounded awful. I think they all should-be canned. But Jessica, Nica and Cara get through. Stephanie … dumped. Poor Stephanie with her crazy ass show biz loony tune Mother. She needs a restraining order against that kook ball of a Mom who is obsessed with her daughter being a star.
Loves Angels - Terrica Curry, Carmen Delgina, Emmanuel Zidor sang “Say My Name”
Harry lectures the group about how awful it was that they picked a song that had no melody.
Over the top Gay Emmanuel goes through (Fagsy don’t like him). Carmen and Terrica are flushed down the Idol toilet and sent home.
Christina Collins, Olivia Diamond, Queen Bulls, Malaya Watson sang “I Want You Back”
All four ladies (who were a total wreck the night before) pulled it together and made it through to the next round.
So there you have it my darling fagolas.
We’re getting closer to the top twenty! I personally can’t wait for all the riff raff to be cleared out so that we can get to know the contestants!
Thanks for reading my faggy Idol recap this week and leave comments below! I love reading them and responding to them!
