American Idol- The biggest thing on TV this week was the much
anticipated season 11 premiere this week. The auditions, which took
place in Georgia and Pittsburgh were marked by a surprising amount
of fantastic singers.
The usual auditions have a surplus of tone-deaf hopefuls, but at
least the first two cities had people who could sing. Most came
with stories of overcoming the odds, most notably the last
performer in Pittsburgh, who had attempted suicide, and a woman who
lived in a tent from the Savannah auditions.
Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson have already shown their weakness
for pretty girls, letting through an NBA cheerleader, and awkwardly
somewhat inappropriately complementing a 15-year-old girl in
of her father. There were some crazies, a girl planked, people
screamed at the cameras, but nothing nearly as insane as some of
the past seasons. Hopefully, we can get a few memorable moments in
before the auditions are over.
Coming up, Ido takes auditions to an aircraft carrier in San
Diego for Sunday night's show.
In Modern Family news, Claire has a debate with the town council
the glorious Internet auto-tunes it... in a very interesting
way. Gloria and Jay's dog might be suicidal..... and again, Modern
Family hasn't been that great. Here's hoping this season gets
Dance Moms- Cathy, the rival dance instructor, returns! In this
dramatic episode, Cathy cheats to beat the Abby Lee girls, and
their apple themed dance number. Kendall, the newbie, struggles to
keep up, which leads me to believe she wont last.
I can't wait for more of this addicting show!
