I haven’t laughed that hard in a coon’s age. (appropriate Southern slang used)
While there wasn’t a whole lot of superb singing, Charleston provided almost everything else….even a new baby.
Ok. I OFFICIALLY LOVE JEFFREY. I doubt we see him in the Top 24, but you got to love a guy who wears a tie on his head and auditions with his sistah.
And then there’s Abstinence Amy. Amy Catherine. AC. Whatevs.
Now, I’m a responsible mother of a teenager — and Catholic — so I’m all about the abstinence thing, in theory….but about spit out my wine when Simon said, “One week in L.A. and it’ll all change”. Mini-DD and I were watching the playback on DVR and he was literally rolling on the floor. It seems that this year is all about chastity as well as the Year of the Blonde. Is it me or does there seem to be a predominance of blonde and partially blonde sirens being shown and making it through?
Like London from Charleston. She was good but I liked the petite Air Force pilot better. I mean, I would have let her in just for singing Black Velvet. Great song choice. I wonder if Simon even knows the song is about “The King”.
Enter Mini-Ree-Ree, although not so “mini”. Too bad she blew the audition. I really think she could sing but her outfit and demeanor really hurt her chances. They couldn’t see passed the, um, obstacles.
One of the things that helps a show “jump the shark” is the incorporation of a pregnancy or having a baby….so, there you have it. Little Emma Grace, all of one-day old (IS THE WOMAN CARAZY?!?), makes her idol debut and sounds the death knell.
