“American Idol,” Feb. 6

6 Feb

Finally — the last of the “American Idol” auditions.

Tonight was “Best of the Rest” special.

Amy Davis kicked off the show singing “Blue Bayou.” I’ve already forgotten her, alas, but she was apparently good enough to go to Hollywood.

Cardin Lee McKinney did a great job of “One Night Only” from “Dreamgirls.” She was very Broadway, though (of course since she chose that song). Simon worries she’s not a contemporary recording artist but sends her through anway.

So I was too busy gossipping with my mom to hear Joanne Borgella’s backstory, other than she sang something at Madison Square Garden. She sang Celine Dion’s “I Love You.” Simon said no but Randy and Paula said yes, so she’s on her way.

Alicia…er…something or another…honestly I didn’t think she’d make it through so I didn’t really try to get her name. Anyway. She too tackled a Celine Dion song and bombed royally. But Randy and Paula said her voice sounded kinda Dolly-ish, so they asked that she learn a Dolly tune. She came back with “Islands in the Stream” and did a pretty good job of it. She’s through to Hollywood, but I doubt she’ll stay past that.

Chikezie Eze sang “All The Woman I Need” and did a nice job. He’s through.

Danny Noriega sang “Proud Mary.” Some parts were wonderful, others not so much, but it’ll be interesting to see what he’ll do in Hollywood.

And that’s it!!!

The ad for next week showed Simon stomping off and contestants crying — in other words, the usual for Hollywood. Stay tuned…

    I hate to see the auditions end. They are the best part of the show. Oh well I guess I can wait until next year. I also heard that the guy from Saltillo was at the rodeo the other night.
