Are we sure Prince and Bob Dylan came from this place?
This is the first of what are sure to be many American Idol (season six) posts to come, and probably the shortest. Was there one really good singer out of last night's bunch from the Minneapolis auditions? I don't think so. There was the one girl who sang "And I AmTelling You," but I thought she really oversang the song (also thought it was funny that there was no mention of Jennifer Hudson singing it, obviously because the show was filmed before the movie had been released).
And other than her...who was there? The Navy guy who made Josh Gracin look restrained? The Army girl who got through because her husband is in Iraq and the judges didn't want to make her tell him she didn't make it? Anyone?
The scariest part is that Seattle (the site of today's episode) is, according to Simon, the worst city (in terms of singing talent) they have ever visited. It gets worse?!
