Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell were in Philadelphia, PA this weekend for the first set of 3rd round auditions. When asked by the press during the lunch break what he thought of the talent he had seen so far, Simon Cowell said,
…A lot of the auditions are ¦the equivalent of eating water for lunch ‘ it doesnt leave you with anything, Simon told reporters Saturday afternoon, reaching into his bag of similes for one that not likely to strike a chord in a city known for fattier fare.
If I were a little ambitious this morning, I could go back through my archives and show you similar quotes from last year, and the year before. That’s Simon’s shtick–telling reporters the talent is crap. Remember Simon unloading on Seattle last year? In the end, Seattle turned out both the winner and runner-up (Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis). ]
C’mon people, we need some new material here!
Randy, Paula and Simon will continue to audition hopefuls throughout September and October.
