The worst thing about Mariah Carey being an American Idol judge is now we have more contestants than ever butchering songs with extended runs. I hate that crap!!!!!!!!!!
I don't like either Mariah or Nicki. I don't think I'll be watching much of American Idol this season. I didn't watch much of the last season, either. There are other better shows on at the same time as Idol.
The one-legged guy did himself no favors starting with the Jason Mraz song. He was horrible at that! I don't like that song anyway but then his singing was choppy. I was wondering why he brought his guitar to the audition if he wasn't going to use so I was glad when Randy asked him to do another song. I really thought he would go through to the next round based on the strength of that performance. I think if he had started with that song, he would have gone to Hollywood.
I didn't think the judges were fair to the girl who did the original song (the one nominated by her mother). Her song stunk but her voice was good. They should have had her do another song, one not her own. Or maybe they did and didn't show that part of the audition.
