I'm sad to say that I don't remember Sundance. I must have been in the kitchen grabing a snack or something.

I was totally not expecting the voice that came out of bearded dude. He was pretty good though!

Go back a page.



To the poster wondering who Sundance was, he was the larger man with a goatee who sang something soulful and blew away Taylor Hicks and his version of soul by the second note.

AI Recaps-January 23rd
Memphis Auditions

After last week’s trainwrecks, the AI crew arrives in Memphis, home of such musical luminaries as Elvis, Al Green, BB King, and the iconic Beale Street. Will the hopefuls show any more promise than last week’s bunch?

Frank aka as “Frank n’ Beans: Frank is a cheerleader, and brings the squad and the band with him. It’s a Frank pep rally! Frank sings “Heard it Through the Grapevine.” Simon hates his singing, so Frank sings again. Simon still hates it, as do I. Frank won’t be going to “give me an H, give me an O, give me an L, give me another L, give me a Y, give me a W, give me an O, give me another O, give me a D. What does that spell? HOLLYWOOD! Yea, go team!”

Tamika: Miss Excitement is practically peeing in her pants over auditioning for AI. She mumbles through an Ashanti song. I can’t understand a word. I don’t have my Tamika to English dictionary.

Chris: Sings the Stevie Wonder song “Superstition.” Stevie Wonder is blind. After that, he wishes he was deaf.

Alexis: Sings in a register only dogs can hear.

Sundance Head: Has a name that sounds like a porn moniker or the type of name one comes up with while playing Mad Libs. However, that’s where my snark ends. Boy can sing! In fact, this boy can SANG!!! Wow, just wow, such a soulful, stirring sound! His father is Roy Head who had a hit with “Treat Her Right.” The apple obviously didn’t fall far from the tree. I got chills listening to this guy. Did I just see and hear a star in the making?

Wandera: I’m kind of surprised that she didn’t make it. I thought she sounded good. I don’t get what Simon meant by Wandera sounding like so many other singers. So do plenty of others who get to Hollywood. I can’t say I blame her for having a melt down over not getting the golden ticket.

Travis: If Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back, then Travis is bringing emotion back. However, after I see his performance I shudder to think of just what emotion Travis is trying to bring back. Epileptic seizure doesn’t equal emotion.

Danielle: She decides to sing Aretha. If you sing Aretha, you better be damn good. Danielle is good, but she sounds a lot like other singers. I got a Kelly Clarkson vibe from her. It’s funny how Wandera didn’t get through because she sounded like other singers, yet Danielle gets through. Oh yes, Simon probably has the hots for her.

Topher: His wife just left him. His audition seems more like a revenge plot rather than a desire to sing and perform. His rendition of “Footloose” is pure karaoke, and not surprisingly, Topher won’t be going to Hollywood.

Janita: Janita...and her breasts show up. She needs some double stick tape to keep the “girls” in place. What is it about some of the female auditioners and their unfettered boobs? Janita can’t sing, so she and her breasts will be staying in Memphis.

Sean: Has an Osama/Jesus/Castro type of style. If this guy goes far how long before we see this look in the fashion magazines? He sings “Gods Gonna Cut You Down.” If someone cuts down his beard, we might discover a total cutie. And he can sing! He gets the golden ticket.

Melinda: Melinda is a background singer. After hearing her sing, I want Melinda to be front and center. What wonderful vocal gift she has. Amazing! I was spellbound! And where the judges see a lack of confidence, I see a modest and humble young woman. This is definitely refreshing in a world of overly self-esteemed non-talents who got trophies just for breathing. I’m definitely keeping my eyes and ears on the delightful Ms. Doolittle.

Robert: Claims he can sing like Elvis, the King-more like the Thing. The Story of Robert won’t end with a period but with a question mark.

Elvis rolls in his grave during the bad singing montage. A hunka, hunka burning crap.

Phil: He misses his child’s birth. Well, I wouldn’t vote for him if there was a “Supportive Husband Idol.” He sings. Color me unimpressed. However, the judges are sending him to Hollywood. Could it be his bald DAUGHTRY! head?

In the end 22 hopeful are going to Hollywood. Next stop? New York City.

What is Joan Collins doing being a guest judge?

Oh, sorry ... I guess it's Carole Bayer Sager. Someone needs to tell her to tone down the hair before Linda Evans comes up and starts an 80s-style bitch fight with her.

And I'm not a violent person, but I really wanted to smack that girl who was all "I can't sing a note, but I can LEARN!!!!!"

I thought it was an act until she started railing at the cameras in the waiting room about how everyone had gone out drinking until THREE AM! AND IT WAS RUDE!!!!!

It was like a sense of entitlement gone horribly wrong.

Oh my god! I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought C.B.Sager looked like Joan Collins, or even Elizabeth Taylor with that hair! Hello Carole, check your calendar

There were plenty to smack around tonight, but the girl you mentioned that couldn't sing 'but could learn' should have been at the front of the line. Or maybe Julie, I mean Isadora aka orgasm girl. I think she was definitely on something

But there were some good people that went through. The only name that comes to my is Jenry (pronounced Henry). Handsome young man of 16, who definitely looked older.

waiting for tomorrow's Golightly Grrl recap

She looked soooooo much like Joan Collins and looked like a little to much Botox. Her face didn't move!

AI Recaps-January 24th
New York Auditions

I heart New York. Will the Big Apple be a Big Dud or a Big Success? Award-winning songwriter Carol Bayer Sager decides to sit a spell with the AI judges. I bet most of the kids auditioning will have no idea who she is. “When you get caught between the moon and the AI judges...”

Ian: Ian comes in with some roadkill around his neck and a huge claim to fame. He auditioned form “So You Think You Can Dance?” He also claims to have a long, impressive resume, at many fine eating and retail establishments, I’m sure. He sings “Gloria” and is horrible. Simon calls it rubbish and this Yank agrees with him. Ian has a hissyfit. How dare Simon and all British judges deny him superstar status. Somehow I don’t think Taylor Who and Carrie Underwear have anything to worry about.

Sarah: Sarah had to lie to her parents about auditioning for AI. She cries in front of the judges, and I wonder if she can keep together. Her father thinks she shouldn’t sing. Has he ever heard her? She’s very good, and has a wonderful tone. I actually puddled up a bit when she called her dad to tell him the good news. I just hope she has the strength to handle Hollywood week.

Fania: She’s Constantine’s female counterpart. However, she can’t sing. My Big Fat Greek Dreading.

Ashanti: Ashanti is returning to Idol, and gets another no. She has a scenery chewing moment of pure melodrama. I thought she was going to break out with “And I’m Telling You.”

Now we have New Jersey BFFs Amanda and Antonella. Gee, I didn’t know New Jersey had Valley Girls. Both Amanda and Antonella are very pretty so you know Simon is interested. But can they actually sing?

Amanda: She’s got a good voice, but is melisma city. She gets an unenthusiastic yes from the judges.

Antonella: Though she doesn’t have the training of her BFF Amanda, Antonella is a much better singer, and has a more distinct sound to her voice. She gets very positive feedback from the judges. Antonella will be joining Amanda in Hollywood. Will their friendship survive?

Clifton: He claims his talent shouldn’t got to waste. Actually his talent is waste, toxic waste. And he needs to learn how to pronounce the word “Tush.” Then Clifton brings out the harmonica. Yea, that’s really going to go over well with Simon. Not surprisingly, Clifton doesn’t get a golden ticket.

Philip: Loud and awful

Jose: I just remember his bright turquoise hair.

William: Ugh!

Kia: She can sing, but don’t these kids know that subtlety can be a good thing? The judges like her, but want her to tone it down.

The next day, Simon arrives late because he is nursing a hangover. With some of the auditioners, I can’t blame him for hitting the bottle.

Jenry: Is it just me or does he look a bit like the model Tyson Beckford? Henry is only 16 but sings with a maturity that belies his young years. I’m impressed (as is Paula, calm down girl), and Henry is off to Hollywood.

Nakia: She’s so hyper that she makes Taylor look still and zen-like. She sings two songs, and though she boasts a big, bluesy voice, it’s all over the place. It’s as if she has no control over it. She’s not going to Hollywood. I actually felt bad for her. She seems like a good kid.

Sarah: Another Sarah auditions, but is light years from the Sarah who auditioned the day before. This Sarah sings Selena’s “Dreaming of You.” I dream of puncturing out my ear drums. She claims she can’t sing, but she still thinks she’s the next American Idol. Um, news flash, Sarah. Being able to sing is the operative goal in being the next American Idol. She’s not unique; she’s obnoxious. With contestants like Sarah, I can understand why the judges go out drinking at the end of the day.

Antonio: He sings “New Yor, New Yor.” Just where is New Yor? Anybody know?

Jorie: From the Great White North, comes Jorie. She sings beautifully. I just love her warm, inviting tone. She knows when to be subtle and she knows when to belt. She’s going to Hollywood! Yeah!

Porcellana: Porcellana claims to be an American Idol Soldier from Queens. She just lost a lot of weight. Bravo to her for shedding the pounds. But can she sing? She sings in a gritty, interesting voice, and is a welcome change from the usual perky, pageant princess types.

Christopher: Christopher gets compared to George Michael and Simon Cowell. Yea, I see the resemblance, but I don’t want to know if Christopher has man boobies like Simon. There are some things I don’t need to know. He sings. Dude sings like a lady. I think he needs to check out auditioning for some drag shows on Christopher Street. And Simon and Paula need to sit in separate corners until they can behave.

Rachel: An opera student, Rachel starts off with a Jeff Buckley tune. I know some people who would be mighty pissed off if she screwed up a Jeff Buckley song. She then sings “Get Here.” However, she sounds best when she sings opera. But singing for the Met won’t get you access into Hyde or the Viper Room like singing on American Idol. All three of the singing Rachels get a golden ticket.

Christopher: Another Christopher, this one from Virginia. Sings “A Song For You.” His version isn’t quite as velvety sexy like Elliott Yamin’s, but Christopher is good, and has a look and style that you know the young girls and middle-aged women like Paula Abdul swooning over.

Nicholas: Nicholas is back for more. He made it to Hollywood last year, but bailed out during Hollywood week. He sings “Fly Me to the Moon” and gets a second chance. Let’s hope he doesn’t bail out this time.

Isadora/Julie: She claims she’s clairvoyant. I’m clairvoyant too. I don’t see Hollywood in Isadora/Julie’s future, perhaps a straight jacket.

At the end of two long days, 35 people are going to Hollywood. Next week, AI goes to where Idols seem to be born-Birmingham, Alabama. Yes, Sweet Home Alabama-the place that gave us Ruben, Bo, and Taylor.
