I am one of those people who only watch American Idol during the Audition Show. It’s painfully obvious the types of singers that go through.
A. Sing a slower song because…
B. 95% of the people they choose over do the vibrato in their voice.
In the past two weeks two contestants Rebecca Garcia and Naomi Sykes were called out because one of the judges thought their audition was a joke reducing the poor girls to tears. I am not the only one to notice. Vote for the Worst website, that pokes fun at the tactics Idol producers use, caught this.
There are plenty of good singers who don’t make it through because they pick a bad song and plenty of ok ones that make it through because they made better song choices.
Personally I liked Rockstar INXS and Supernova because they had people pick vote each week and the bottom were put on the block for the judges to boot off…so there was at least some semblance of who had talent.
Anyway, back to Idol, I don’t get why some people are so upset when they get booted. Don’t their friends and family tell them they aren’t that good. I think they should all get credit for having the guts to audition but do they think they will get a trophy like they did when they sucked at soccer as a kid just for showing up??
