American Idol 13:Boston/Austin Auditions
Sorry I'm late on this post but Ive been a lil busy, i promise to recap this whole season though! not like last season where i skipped a few weeks but can you really blame me?? Any ways this was the season premiere of season 13! wow this show has been around for more than half my life haha. Lets talk about these judges firstly, Jennifer is still very easy to please but having more experience than the other two judges i think that will force her to step her game up a little bit, Keith urban is well, still a pretty decent judge he give good critics, looks like hes actually enjoying himself, but still easy to please just like jlo. And Harry connick jr. this guy is freakin hilarious and he gives it to you straight, hes just what idol needed, an honest funny judge that wont create drama.
now lets talk about the auditions, can i just say that per blankens is doing an amazing job so for, the auditions were better than they've ever been, good talent, no sob stories, and not very much of the freak show auditions that we see so much every year. oh and another thing, prepare yourselves for an all guitar playing season, seems like EVERY contestant played the dam guitar, i thought idol wanted to stray away from that, eh
First of all this girl was in the Detroit auditions so i don't know why they would show her on this episode but whatever.she has an interesting look but to me it was just ok i wasn't in love with her like the judges were. shes just not that great of a singer.
First little sad story of the season, wasn't that sad, this kid has alot of potential in this competition just because i think people will fall in love with hi, the singing was ok but he just seemed super super nervous. but he did do pretty good
Whoa Phillip phillips? haha looked like him so much its kinda creepy, but besides that he has a nice tone to his voice, don't think hell make it very far though.
Very pretty girl with a unique voice. i liked her but she might get out sung in this competition, lets wait and see
Hey its that girl from the x factor, i didn't like her that much on the other show but i did like this audition she looks like shes matured up a little bit hopefully.
Another little sob story and she sang an original song about her grandpa. Honestly i didn't like her very much the singing was just ok for me. her original wasn't bad either.
I actually liked his cover of this song i just thought it was a bit generic, typical acoustic version of a pop song. also he kinda gets lost in the sea of wgwg this season.
This is probably my favorite audition of the night. savion has a unique look and his original song was pretty dang good, i could see him making it far this year I'm excited to see what he does next.
One of the best of the night, i really liked his rendition of superstition, i even liked his air guitar ha. i didnt like how he sounded when he went to his lower vocals but everything else was spot on
Hands down the funniest audition! not only did this guy sing pretty well, i enjoyed his crooner voice, but he sang while being cradled in Harry's arms, priceless. i died when he sang i just want you close"
