American Idol Season 13 auditions continued tonight from Salt Lake City, Utah!
A lot of original songs were performed tonight by a lot of good singers with a lot of guitars!
One of the first singers up was lumberjack Kylee Adamson. Yes, a real lumberjack! Kylee was pure country gold with a nice billy-goat yodel vibrato. It was no surprise to me that she was given the Golden Ticket to Hollywood … mostly because the girl knows how to use an axe! She could potentially kill the judges. Here ya go honey snuggles … you’re goin’ to Hollywood.
Samantha Calmes who wore a fanny pack and sang an original song has a very alternative sounding voice (very Lilith Fair). I loved when the judges asked her to sing a non-original song and she burst out into ‘The Jefferson’s’ ‘Movin’ On Up’. She get’s Fagsy’s vote just for that.
Julie Offal (pronounced ‘Awful’) I would’ve given this poor girl a Golden Ticket solely based on her name. I don’t see her being the next American Idol but I see her being remembered for her name. What she should’ve done was changed her Offal name before her Idol audition. But being that she didn’t … I think she’d do better in porn or writing a blog. Aren’t I just Offal. (Gay sigh)
Now there was something about singer DJ Bradley that Fagsy really liked. I think it was his sorta quirky grunge boy twink look. I’m glad he made it to Hollywood because I can’t wait to see him try to fit in to the dorky Hollywood group round.
I loved alcoholic ‘Cher’ impersonator Paisley Van Patten. Her “Cher” wasn’t as impressive as when she sang Faith Hill’s ‘When the Lights Go Down’. I think she’s gonna go far and of course being that she’s an addict in recovery I’m gonna pull for her even more. Is that unfair? Oh who cares I’m Fagsy so what.
I really liked CJ Harris. From rough trade activity at a young age with the Law to now a sensitive sweet soul who dedicated his song to his father who died last year. I was relieved when he sang well. I’ll root for this one. Tho he could crumble under the bright lights of Hollywood week. I hope not. He was sweet.
Power house Tequila Wilson sings to the dead at her job in a funeral home … but not for long … gurls gotta strong voice and a strong presence.
Favorite of the night: Carmen Delgina because her name sounds like vagina and her Dad is Wonder Mike from Sugar Hill Gang! Poor vagina wasn’t that good but all 3 judges voted yes! I think just to meet her Dad. Good luck vagina!
Second night – From Omaha Nebraska
Quaid Edwards cute son of a lead singer in a country band called Jolie and the Wanted. Voice, not great. Looks, let’s just say gay boys and girls are gonna root and toot for this hottie who seems a little like he’s trying to live Mommies dream more than his own.
Alyssa Seibken sounded more like an amped up auctioneer then a singer when she “sang” “No Hands” by Waka Flocka Flame. Maybe it was nerves that sped up her vibrato like a horse race announcer on speed. Too much
Tyler Gurwicz was uncomfortable to watch and listen to and he made facial expressions that looked like he was smelling poo. He was given the Golden Tcket but Fagsy woulda said NO.
CJ Jones demanding Harry stand by him while he sang ‘Stand By Me’ made for a memorable moment. Good voice, not great. Was given the Golden ticket. Should be interesting to see how far this kid will go.
Paula Hunt. Good singer. I loved that she’s singing for her Mom who had some success as a singer but couldn’t sing anymore after being diagnosed with MS. I’m gonna pull for Paula to go far. She’s a natural. Certain people like Paula touch my faggy soul. I tend to like the people who come from hardship. I want them to win. See, Fagsy does have a heart.
Andrina Brogden was obviously someone the producers loved because they had footage of her 24 hours before her audition. Duh. She was a good singer. Not great but I agree with the judges in that I think she was nervous. We’ll see if Andrina rises to the occasion in Hollywood week. [Fagsy Side Note: I had a cat named Andrina once that hated me!]
Tessa Kate … country bunkin Dolly-like yodel singer. I loved that Harry compared her to a Barbara Mandrel type singer / performer. She’s good but I can’t see her fitting into Hollywood week. I think she should turn her attention to working at Dollywood as a Dolly impersonator. Oh Fagsy …
Well, that does it for this part of the competition! Next week is Hollywood Week and it looks like there’s gonna be some fun surprises. So stay tuned because as the top 20 start to emerge that’s when the real fireworks start to happen!
See y’all next week!
