American Idol 12 Promos: Shirtless and Crazy

Now that X Factor has wrapped up, it’s time to turn our attention to AMERICAN IDOL HOORAY. Here are three new promos that aired during the XFUS finale.

Who knew Mariah would take pointers from Kara Dioguardi? She tells a hopeful to take his shirt off. And then Keith falls out of his chair. Heh. “Your range is better than Mariah’s!” says Nicki.  If the contestant wasn’t a joke, it would have been even funnier..

    It’s Nicki who asked for the shirt off

  • fantoo1

    Excited for the season to begin! They are doing a good job with the promos this year- they make you want to watch.

    When did Kara ever tell a hopeful to take his shirt off (for Casey James, it was Randy who asked for the shirt removal)?  

  • jcabby

    I think the new season’s auditions are finally going to be enjoyable to watch. Last season was meh for the most part.

    I know I am excited and hope there won’t be too many joke auditions.  It looks like they are having fun!

    I want to make a mistake. Very.

    A woman should do that too.

    Mariah’s range is very old-fashioned! She should use the amazing autotune program of Nicki Minaj that has 10 octaves!

  • Axxxel

    yeah , double standards here…

  • James M.

    The shirtless dude looks like Napoleon Dynamite without glasses from the neck up, and his hair looks silly, like an anime character with bedhead.

    The show also needs a Bikini Girl who can actually sing. 

    Like, maybe someone who appreciates sports and beer and can belt I Dreamed A Dream. And is dreadfully hot.
