Last night's episode in Los Angeles auditions was interesting for the wrong reasons
First, Avril Lavigne looked terrible. Her hoody was, well, dumb (cat ears? cmon). Also, she seemed quiet and never contributed much. In terms of the guest panelists thus far, Victoria Beckham was been the best, with Avril just one notch above the ever-annoying Kristin Chenoweth (she was annoying in that episode, I should say). Day one seemed like a bust and the people that made it were ho-hum.
Day two was much better. I have to admit at first when they mentioned Katy Perry was the guest judge, I was less than thrilled. But by the end I loved Katy because she was brutally honest. The highlight was when Kara went on one of her dumb Paula-wannabe rants about how awesome the singer was and Katy turned to her and said "Is this a lifetime movie?"
Anyone who slams Kara gets major props from me but she also was honest with the people that auditioned.
A new trend among auditioners that irks me is the person who thinks by being firm and not accepting the judge's decision will get the judges to reconsider because they're so strong willed or whatever. I guess they forgot the part that requires them to be talented at singing in order for that strategy to work.
LA was another not great episode and the best talent was that guy with the glasses from Day 2 that had a sappy story. Still haven't seen one singer this season that I've been "wowed" by yet.
