Idol Auditions: Lose Angeles

After watching the American Idol Los Angeles audition episode (aka one hour of my life I'll never get back), I decided the episode wasn't worthy of a recap. But you know what? It was so bad it NEEDED a recap. Because really ... this can't happen again.

No more Los Angeles auditions. All you get are famewhores with little to no talent. No more over-saturation of bad auditions and not showing us good auditions. This episode is widely getting panned as one of the worst, if not THE worst, Idol episode ever. It's not rocket science, Uncle Nigel. There is a correlation here.

FIVE people were shown getting through to Hollywood. And none of them have any kind of star quality. Had they been on another episode in another city, they wouldn't have been deemed TV-worthy, except maybe the adorbs Gutierrez brothers.

And I get that people like the trainwreck auditions. But at least show the entertaining ones! None of these people were. The guy at the end? The homeless-looking crazy guy who, as Top Idol astutely pointed out, was like a combo of General Larry Platt of "Pants On The Ground" fame and Renaldo Lapuz "You Are My Brother" fame? That guy was just batshit crazy. It's not entertaining. It's not funny. It's TIRED.

So there's one more audition city left before the Hollywood rounds start. There is a God!
