American Idol: Charleston Auditions

jboson.jpgFunky 'fro in the house! Send everyone else home because I would probably vote for Raysharde Henderson based solely on his beautiful afro. That takes talent right there! He compared himself to the black Clay Aiken, but I think he actually resembles another celebrity almost to a tee.

DeAnna Prevatte also likened herself to another former "Idol" contestant: Kellie Pickler. Kellie is a cutie, but couldn't DeAnna have shot a bit higher? They do have something in common – they both spell their names in "unconventional" ways. Kellie isn't that too far out there, but I'm guessing that she wouldn't rip off your head and play tetherball with it if you mispronounced it. DeAnna... I am not so sure.

Next up was the dynamic duo of Randy and Crystal. They met on the "American Idol" message boards. You'd think after all of that time chatting online, they would have discussed that duos don't get picked for the show. Sure, we've had a few siblings make it to Hollywood, but you're better off with an all-for-one attitude. At least they got something out of the show, because with that audition, they certainly weren't getting tickets to Hollywood.

To get his duo to Hollywood, Jeffrey Lampkin needed to distinguish himself... so he tied a necktie around his bald head. I guess that was his "ow!" factor. Apparently it worked; and the magic rubbed off on his sister as well.

Catholic schoolgirl Amy Catherine Flynn liked to talk about abstinence. Fortunately, her singing was better than her preaching. Have to side with Simon though; she was annoying.

London was a standout, and not for her sob story. It was sad, but pretty standard "AI" stuff. I have just never heard of anyone named London.

Other notables of the night:

• The guy that took off his shirt during the montage. I think I'm blind.
• The redheaded guy who sounded like Ethel Merman.
• Aretha Codner's mom should have named her Einstein or something, because apparently she has a better chance of being the world's smartest person than the "American Idol."
• Josh Boson, who delivered the night's standard, lengthy "I can so sing" speech.

Overall, Charleston was nothing to write home (or even a blog) about. They should have recorded that woman giving birth to her baby; it probably would have been the best audition of the night. See you next week. -- Rachel Cericola
