  1. Well I have no desire to watch, beyond maybe checking out judges I like, like Neil Patrick Harris, Kristin Chenoweth and to see how Ellen does, but other than that? eh. But happy for all the rest who are excited about it. Could be a good season and maybe Simon’s last.

  2. The guy in green is sorta cute

    Yeah, he kinda is. :) The mullet guy…..YIKES! I’m talking about his singing. lol

  3. That last girl could almost be one of the people previewed. Ashley Makailah or something. Hey it might actually be her! Same hair…

    I hate the painful auditions though.. But I’ll watch anyway. I don’t see how people can derive pleasure from that..

  4. I guess there was no “Taylorization” of Kris since his picture on the winner’s wall is not behind a plant in the corner.

  5. I’ll watch but geez couldn’t they show only good ones? Isn’t it the purpose of the show to find a star? showing bad singers doesn’t accomplish anything for me
    ..yeah maybe when we’ll get rid of Simon, the crap will go away along

  6. i like the guy with a white t-shirt.

    I guess there was no “Taylorization” of Kris since his picture on the winner’s wall is not behind a plant in the corner.

    further more, we ONLY see Kris on that wall … haha. Yes no taylorization at all

  7. That was Ashley Makailah at the end. They just showed a preview of Season 9 on one of those entertainment shows at night. She sang “If I Ain’t Got You” for her audition. She seems to be definitely one to watch… I know there is a lot of pre-season hype about her but she does seem to have it all. Then again, so did Cardin McKinney and Joanna Pacitti. We’ll see!

  8. I’m excited, woohoo! It’s one of the few shows I can sit down and watch with my whole family, I enjoy it. Been watching since Season 2, don’t plan to quit it now ;)

  9. And ohhhh, Mullet Man! Wow, that ‘do is special.

    That and well his voice too. Hee

  10. That and well his voice too. Hee

    I vaguely registered caterwauling but I was so awed by the mega-mullet that… I barely heard him. He was skeering me!

    Good point cause that didn’t sound like singing. I don’t think you can even put that into words.

  12. But the dude with the enormous mullet? Tres tragic!

    lol that cracked me up…

  13. Kiss from a Rose guy wasn’t horrible, although I hate that song. The only real good news is that Kris was represented nicely. So when Mega Mullet was wailing, I could concentrate on Kris’s pic and ignore the noise.

  14. Anyone know if Rose, the girl with the dreads from last year auditioned again?

    MJ. you are a glutton for punishment, I sincerely hope you are making enough money to buy your own plane, because you put up with a lot of crap to do the job you do.
    Good luck this year!

  15. The guy who sang Kiss From A Rose has already been featured by MJ here. He’s the one who sang Let’s Get It On from what I can remember. I like him.

  16. I predict that the guy in green will be one of my favorites. I tend to like the guys who seem young and cute (I hate myself for using this phrase and will probably kick myself for saying this, but no homo >_>) along with the hot/R&B girl. So maybe I’ll like Ashley and Michelle?

    Not a huge fan of Kiss from a Rose guy, he sounded a little hesitant on some parts but he seemed like he deserved to go through.

  17. Most of these guys have good auditions but when they get on the how, they disappoint. I’ll wait till the show starts then I’ll see who clicks just like the way I did with Kris.

  18. From that preview clip, I like Kris’ picture at the background the most. :)

  19. I can’t see how they can top last season. Last season was probably one of the best Idols ever. I am excited for this season though just to see who they scrape up from the bottom of the Hollywood barrel.

  20. But the dude with the enormous mullet? Tres tragic!

    LOL, ross kinda beat me to it, but I was going to ask how you tell it was a mullet? The singing though, tragic!!!

    Loved the backdrop!!!

  21. the kiss from a rose guy is bryce larson!

    Who’s Bryce Larson? Was he someone featured on here? (Poor memory, getting old.)

    I happen to lurve that song though.

  22. I predict that the guy in green will be one of my favorites. I tend to like the guys who seem young and cute (I hate myself for using this phrase and will probably kick myself for saying this, but no homo >_>)

    janmasta, you crack me up! It’s okay though, my hubby notices when a guy is good lookin’ a lot.

  23. jammasta, yes you really should….if you are that flexible.? Ha, When you preface something you say with” I should probably kick myself”.just go with your gut!!!

    Bryce Larson, He has a nice voice, and I will also predict, that if he makes it
    trough hollywood, he could very well be a favorite! Heard his band on their
    My space provided by this site……sounded great. Check archives?

    The guy with the “non mullet hair”,could make some women jelus.
    One could not define the sound coming from him as musical. Ha, he could
    give Sanjaya some competition though!!

  24. hah! that first girl resembles the image of Alexis Grace’s audition! The singing though, not so much

  25. I can’t see how they can top last season. Last season was probably one of the best Idols ever.

    And that’s why there’s chocolate and vanilla. I thought last season was one of the worst, and I’ve been watching since S3.

    It’s hard to tell if that dude with the hair has a really long mullet he’s trying to grow out, or if he just uses too much gel in his hair! Either way, it’s awful.

  26. Loved the backdrop!!!

    Somehow, that made me remember when during season 8, VFTW said Kris blended into the wallpaper. Now he’s featured on the “wallpaper” as the Idol winner. Ha. Take that, VFTW!

  27. the mullet guy reminds me of that boy-band singer that janet jackson was married to for 10 minutes back in the day… (what’s his name again? debarge?)

  28. cookcricket-

    yah mj posted about him around a week ago
    (cute/acoustic guitar/saving grace)

    real spoiler– kiss from a rose (what he’s singing in this clip)
