American Idol Season 8 in San Francisco (2008-01-20)

I cannot believe I'm going to be watching American Idol tonight. Not after we saw what today in Washington DC, where the "real American Idol" was inaugurated.

But we do what we must do.

OMG the auditions are at the Parc 55 in San Francisco tonight. I've spent maybe 80 nights there in the past 3 years. Ugh, I certainly know that place only too well. How on earth did they keep the clanging of the cable cars from overwhelming the auditions?

Tatiana del Coro is from Puerto Rico and had a heck of a dress. Alot of vibrato and jazzy but too "cabaret" and a creepy laugh.

Scary freek redhead named Nick. And Jiayu is a scary offtune asian gal.

Then Dean Bradford (oh no from Pasadena) looks like a nightmare and sings from Simply Red. He's intense and loud, that's for sure. He's surprised he's not going through?

Jesus Valenzuela is a Dad with a few kids. Interesting, he's singing a boy band number. I like it. Simon's in a grumpy mood and said "no" to the kids. Oh wow, Gabriel (small kid) hugs Simon. Ewww.

Dalton does Rubik's cube. Does that mean he can sing? "Oh Baby Baby" was whimpered out. Poor guy.

James Smith has a beret and points. Oh, someone point him out the door. It's so bad.

Akilah shows up with some biology stuff. She's going to be singing some gospel. Trachea? Why isn't she singing gospel then? The song wasn't very good at highlighting her voice. Oh dear, off key. Oh stop the fighting.

String of singers who made it through but we didn't really get to hear them.

Now, Annie Murdoch. Sings Summertime and then got stabbed in the side.

Adam Lambert used to do musical theater when he was younger. Sings Bohemian Rhapsody with a really nice sound. Simon thinks he's theatrical.

Kai Kalama is a musician who takes care of his mom. One note shaded poor but a nice sound to his voice. Rather old fashioned crooner. Good he goes through.

So, that's it. We're off to Louisville tomorrow night. And, we can return to watching the Inaugural Balls...
