THE LONG WAIT IS FINALLY OVER. the new season of american idol premiered last week and i was so excited and devastated at the same time. we have no cable tv! but good thing my brother saved me from the frustration of missing it by downloading the episodes on his hard drive. whew.
there’s a new judge added to the threesome of paula, randy, and simon—kara dioguardi. it’s a cool twist. let’s see how she will cope up with the show’s craziness. hehe! i think the producers decided to add another female judge to compensate for paula’s looping comments. hehe!
i have a feeling this season will be an interesting one. only two cities down and yet there’s a lot of promising talents already. these are some of my favorites from last week’s auditions:
EMILY WYNNE-HUGHES. beautiful girls who kick-ass with their voice are really appealing. she somehow resembled keira knightly (with pink hair) at some angles. it requires a really good instrument to sing ‘barracuda’ and she sang it really good. i have my eyes on this one.
JB AHFUA. he looked like a filipino at first glance. i hope he is. i love how he sang “flying without wings”. very soulful.
ARIANA AFSAR. I just love her sweet voice. She seems very simple and very down-to-earth. I hope she makes it.
MICHAEL SARVER. the oil-rig guy. he sings really well. it’s really rare to see buffed men to sing like he did.
CODY SHELDON. he reminds me of the noriega guy from the previous season. however, i am more curious of his fondness for making horror movies than his voice. haha! he looks like michelle branch (emo version).
ALEX WAGNER-TRUGMAN. i am rooting for the geek! woohoo!
SCOTT MACINTYRE. i love his story as much as i love his voice. he’s the first ‘blind’ aspirant to win a ticket to
ASHLEY ANDERSON. she’s really cool and beautiful. make her sing and you’ll fall in love. i almost did. hehe!
CASEY CARLSON. i love her sweet voice. i am more drawn to her looks though. she's a bikini model by the way. hehe! she reminds me of summer from ‘the oc’.
MICHAEL CASTRO. he’s way cooler and sounds better than his brother jason from the previous season. i love how he made justice to the song “i’m in love with a girl” by gavin degraw, who happens to be one of my favorite recording artists.
DANNY GOKEY. great vocals and full of soul. he’s one of the front-runners so far in my opinion.
LIL ROUNDS. really cool name eh? but wait till she open her mouth to sing. she sounds like beyonce but as she was singing, melinda dolittle popped in my head.
that’s all for now. i can’t wait for this weeks auditions! woohooo!
