American Idol: San Francisco Auditions

AIjudges.jpgThankfully, there are no more two-hour editions of "American Idol" auditions. Sadly, there are a few more weeks of them. I am ready to see the rumble already! A few thoughts about tonight's visit to San Francisco:

• Funny that they kicked off the episode playing Me First & the Gimme Gimmes, since all of the judges would probably be disgusted by any of their albums. [They rock!]

• Don't feel bad if Simon tells you that you have the worst voice; more people have the worst than the best.

• Sway has some soul, but I just don't see him making it past Hollywood. Prove me wrong, Sway!

• People that say they're definitely going to Hollywood shouldn't be so sure of themselves. Sometimes confidence is not your friend.

• If you have a freaky act, you'd better have a voice to back it up. Unfortunately, even the talented freaks get left behind in Hollywood.

• Why do some people get to go on and on and others get the hook right away? Are they afraid of a violent outburst from some and others look like they can go down in a hurry?

• Marcus Philips may not be the next American Idol, but he might be the next John Moschitta. Wow -- that guy could talk fast!

• I love it when someone bad starts to get feedback and they just break into another song. Is that a last chance thing or a torture thing?

• I don't blame Simon for being cranky. I'm ready for the auditions to end too. -- Rachel Cericola

Mac's Rambling Thoughts from This Episode

• I know it was staged and stunningly contrived, but Simon's resurrection of that one woman's job made up for a lot of the nasty things he's said.

• The age limit for this show needs to be moved up. I will be stunned if anyone under 18 ever wins. The young 'uns might have the chops, but far too many of them think belting notes at the top of their lungs will compensate for their immaturity.

• I'm way ahead of myself with this one, but when the time comes for the "AI" theme shows (singing the standards, singing '80s songs, etc.) I really want a "Rap Week." Just imagine one of those virginal little kids from Everytown, USA ripping into a DMX classic ...

• All-Terrain Entertainer Marcus Phillips had the most bizarre falsetto I've ever heard. His beat box was falsetto.

• Deborah Dawn Tilley is the roughest looking 27-year-old in history. It's as though the ass truck ran her down, backed up, rolled over her again, then dumped a load of bloodthirsty scorpions on her crumpled body.

• Someday a contestant is going to completely suck on their first song and they'll pull that "I'll try singing more songs before they kick me out" and suddenly, their voice will kick in and they'll unleash the most beatific sounds the judges have ever heard. I'm sure this will happen. -- Mac Slocum
