So I didn't see the first episode of Idol. Did anything actually happen? How are the judges? |
I did, however, see Rockstar and I wrote about it over at Hubris. I'm still waiting to fall in love with a new Jordis. I don't think it's going to happen though, but Patrice looks to be a bit of a slow-but-steady burner like Suzy was...
They sent alot of good people away, and let some really crappy ones it.
Stables and Megan made a deal that if the next three wre bad, he would get up and sing.
That was prossibly the best part of the night. ummm, what else?
My mum reckons that Megan is the nastiest judge , Stables was funny, and made jokes about people, but that was to be expected. And that's about it :(
I hate the audition stages.
Cheers. I love the audition stages, because you expect them to be bad, wheras the rest of it is still crap but it's trying to pretend like it's not.
I don't like the new judges. Stables is obviously only there to make 'witty' putdowns, seeing as he doesn't know much else about music. Only the best he could do was 'you're shit' so... he fails.
Megan tried to be really opinionated and sassy, only again, she had nothing constructive to say and wasn't funny either. Then there is the fact that she has only the briefest of singing 'careers' and is hardly a figure of respect. She has no authoritaaaa.
As for the singing, I agree that they got rid of some quite promising-sounding preformers. There was this lanky 16 year old ginger girl in tight wee glassons clothes who came in and started wibbling and trilling all over the place. Seventeen syllables and three painful octaves to say 'love'. I thought she was going to be the start of the losers reel AND THEY PUT HER THROUGH.
See, I thought Stables must have drafted in because even though he wasn't "the record company executive", he was still really witty and sharp, so this is disappointing to hear.
As for Megan's authority, it's not a good sign when The Kids were calling for Joe Cotton as being a better choice as a judge.
I couldn't believe the ginger menace got in. There were really exceptional people before her who got kicked to the curb. They said she must have been nervous and underneath the nervous trills they could hear a good voice. Pitty they didn't extend that courtesy to anyone else.
You didn't miss much...just your usual idol auditions, with your token kid (okay he was 19 but looked 14) with black wings who came on to sing "deathmetal" and then ended up singing Slipknot.
There was your usual amount of people dragging on notes and warbling them (does this annoy anyone else as much as it annoys me?!) until they got a yes.
I just hope the next episodes will be good. I intend to watch this series damnit!
