    Uh wow lol. I guess he could be entertaining?

  • SullyD

    I don’t like him at all (or at least this video), but somehow I’m relieved this is Adam Sanders, because I’ve made some research earlier and found this guy … I guess it could be worse, lol.

    I’m glad David Leathers tried out again.

  • LeahKittyS

    I’m curious to see how the repeat contestants will stack up. Last year they managed to get 4 repeaters (DeAndre, Colton, Hollie, and Joshua) on the tour. I hope that they have similar success this year, specifically with Shelby Lynn Twenten, Schyler Dixon (especially her!), Johnny Keyser, David Leathers, Jr., Candice Glover, and maybe Cortez Shaw.

  • fantoo1

    Candice, Shelby, David, and Schyler were all robbed last year.

  • Incipit

    I’m curious to see how the repeat contestants will stack up.

    I wonder what difference a year has made in how they will present themselves this time…what they learned from the last go round, and if they spent that year  gigging out and learning, polishing up their skill sets, or not.

  • Sassycatz

    Is there a reason why he has underwear on his head?

  • Incipit

    Maybe he thinks it’s cool. Very precious. IMO. And I don’t mean that in a good way.

  • blackberryharvest

    There’s a really good Hayley Williams type rocker named Taisha Bethea. She isn’t one of those typical black divas we see a lot on idol. She is in a band with WGWG lol. They are called “Carson.” Check out her videos:

    Here is what she would sound like with a recorded voice:

    Fans of the rocker chicks NEED to check her out.

  • Sassycatz

    Hmm, I want her on the show only if that girl in the back can come on too. LOL!

  • OffLeash

    Nope. Totally spontaneous. ~snerk

  • Kesia Monteith

    LOL Didn’t someone actually audition last year, and brought along a friend to dance? I swear I thought that happened last year. 

  • Adam Sanders

     nope. no reason at all. Had just gotten out of the shower and was bored… lol

  • Kesia Monteith

    LOL! hey wait a minute, have commented around this blog before?

  • Thiago Alencar

    Hope Schyler got something from Colton (i was sad to see her go last year) and that she goes to the live shows. Same goes to Shelby, David Leathers, Jr. and Johnny.
    Seems a very talented group, i hope the producers don’t turn it into the trainwreck that the x-factor became.

  • Adam Alamillo

    Female #8 (Left) has got it in the bagggg

  • Jake Williams

    I like his voice. Pretty unique. I’d vote for him. Plus he’s adorable. I don’t normally wanna vote for guys on this show since they always win while the girls get screwed over. But he is way better than the boring wgwg’s. I’ll have to see everyone else still. Guy wise, he’s probably going to be my favorite. Taisha sounds great too. No one will ever replace Jessica Sanchez for me though. She was my favorite all time contestant.

  • Sassycatz

    while the girls get screwed over. But he is way better than the boring

    I would like to see a woman win, but not because I found (blanket statement, over generalization) all the WGWGs boring. In fact I liked at least a couple of the last five guys enough to want them to win, but because it would be nice to finally shoot down this tedious argument.

  • lukien

    Johny Keyser seems to be a shoe-in for the finals this year. He lost the race of pretty boys last year to guitar guy and piano guy. I think with the success of Phillip and country singers like Scotty and Tate in XF, many wgwg will emerge. What happened to John Wayne two seasons ago? I knew that year a country singer would win and i thought he would definetely the one to win but he was bumped out of a spot by Scotty.

  • Kody Baker

    After going through this list of contestants.. I really don’t think this is going to be a good season AT ALL. Most of the talent here is very average and mediocre. The past 2 seasons watching the youtube videos of the potential finalist has always got me excited for the seasons but this season has me very worried that this could be a pretty talentless year.. like season 9 all over again.. i really hope not though.

  • mchcat

    John Wayne is doing shows here in Texas – hope he can make it some day – he has a really good voice

  • blackberryharvest

    This is only a quarter of what made it to Hollywood. There’s A LOT more names that haven’t been spoiled-so far there are only 67 out of about 300+ that made it to Hollywood.

    I would recommend looking at videos of the following contestants and you may change your mind :)

    Taisha Bethea
    Candice Glover
    Gabe Brown
    Josie Lowder
    Lauran Beluzo
    Rachel Hankers
    Chris Watson

  • Jerry Weil

    Well you know you’ll have my vote Adam :)

  • carlos

    Adam Sanders was awesome!!! Good Luck and kick butt!!!!
