Atlanta auditions.

It's taken me a bit to get to my computer this morning because I was finishing s book... sniff, sniff... anyone read "Dear John" ? I had no idea it was so sad! I will definitely be needing a Coke Zero and some chocolate to pick me up today. Who wants a girls trip to the movie? It comes out in February...

I digress. Okay - Recap from City #2 - the big ATL -

Though I wasn't completely overwhelmed with the overall presentation last night, there were a few memorable one-liners, like from the "Skii-bo-ski, baby! Skii-bo-ski!" guy. How about "I'm gonna ride on an aero-plane!" or the twangy "I think it's CUTE! I can always lose the guitar...!"

A couple of bright spots - I liked that Jermaine-church-singer guy, who takes care of his momma and sang What if God was one of us"... I can already hear Randy saying "You made that song your OWN, DAWG!" regarding his future performances... (But WAIT, have we even heard the word "Dawg" yet this season? Eek! Could it be dead????!!!) I also liked "Miss Congeniality" who sang the Titanic song. But let's be honest, I don't think either of these will make it to the top 12 - - and the girl from Vonore, Tennessee - you know, the bridge jumper? That's just a crying episode waiting to happen in Hollywood when she doesn't make it through.

Seems like the show last night spent ALL its time on the bad singers, and hardly any at all on the talented ones. I mean come ON - I had no patience for that fake montage of the hick "almost" getting killed over and over again... sigh!

Highlight of my night, by far, was:

"Pants on the ground, pants on the ground... lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground!" Ha! How much did you love this guy? It's another William Hung in the making, I tell ya! So fun! I loved the judges singing with him... And how awesome was it that the whole Idol crowd in the lobby of the building was singing it too???? GREAT! This will definitely be brought back in the finale, you can count on it! I don't know if it will be as wonderful as the guy singing "You are my brother, my best friend forever" along with the USC marching band from season 7, and not as hilarious as Kara singing with bikini girl from last year, but I'm sure they'll come up with something almost as good. Peace out 'til next week...

I loved the girl from Vonore - she was so sweet and just happy to get shot! Her dress was cute and for $4.50?! We haven't heard "dawg" yet, but we have heard "a trillion, bazillion, ca-jillion, thousand times yes!" ALOT..... The 62 year old was classic! "with your hat turned side and your pants on the ground.....hahaha!!!
