I just was browsing thru Lobeck's recaps and realized that all her reviews are captivating.
What lobeck said about FANTASIA during auditions
What lobeck said about DIANA during auditions
Just when I think the auditions will never get better, in comes Fantasia Barrino. Yes, that is her real name—Fantasia. Anyway, Fantasia launches into an awesome rendition of "Proud Mary", and my hope for this season is immediately restored. She is unanimously advanced through to Hollywood, and Simon goes so far as to say that Fantasia is "one of the best we've ever had". Wow. I will go out on a limb right now and say that I will be very surprised if Fantasia does not make it to the Top 32, if not the finals. You heard it hear first, folks.
Before the end of the season let's all say thanks to Lobeck for these reviews.We come back from another commercial break, and we are introduced to Diana Degarmo. Ryan tells us that, at 16 years old, Diana is the youngest female contestant to make it to Hollywood. Well, there goes all the suspense of whether or not her audition is good. Yes, Diana is 16 years old, and, as Randy says, it is nice to see a 16-year-old who actually looks like a 16-year-old. Diana does a fantastic rendition of Aretha Franklin's "Chain Of Fools", and the only complaint comes from Simon (A complaint from Simon? Imagine that.). He says that her "cutesy" presentation and constant smiling are just too much. Hey, Simon, the girl is only 16 years old. Cut her some slack. Never mind. It doesn't matter what Simon thinks, as Paula and Randy both cast enthusiastic "yes" votes and send Diana on through to Hollywood.
Thanks! (By the way is lobeck a girl or a guy?)
Now who is the next American Idol? the one with the most talent never wins so i will go for DIANA! Fantasia is a clay in the making.
Who would cry upon named the American idol. I doubt Diane will cry (maybe she will) i am positive Fantasia will cry us a river
Overall this season was not as bad as i thought it will be! It was actually a tight race will all contestants making it in the botton.
