American Idol 2016 San Francisco Audition – Cody Ostrenga

Cody Ostrenga – He’s a 3 time world champion horse rider. A sport that also involves shooting targets with a gun. He explains shooting balloons while riding at 45 miles an hour. He learned how to belly dance watching Jlo. He demonstrates. Well. OK. “I think you’re thinking of Shakira, not me!” says Jlo, not convinced. He demonstrates shooting and belly dancing at the same time. The editors add some nifty visual effects.  I smell a joke. He sings and dances at the same time. Yep.  It’s the bad singing/ridiculous dancing combo. Classic crappy American Idol joke audition. He should have brought in his horse. THAT would have been something. Keith said everything was good…except for the singing. I don’t think I’d go that far – 3 nos.
