Idaho Idol (Yes, It Has Come To THIS)

American Idol is, what, in its twentieth season by now?  Judges have come and gone.... and come and gone... and now we're left with Mariah Carey, rumors of a Jonas Brothers, and probably Joan Rivers' left boob.

Yes, to say American Idol is past its prime is, well, an understatement.

So much so, this year they are having online auditions for the very first time, as well as a tour bus that is rolling through small towns in flyover states.

Wait a second...

I live in a small town...

I live in a flyover state...

Could that possibly mean...


Yep!  The Idaho Falls roach-coach was in Idaho Falls this past weekend, looking for whatever talent may be in the local area.

...and big surprise, they got a lot of crap.

As a non-auditioner and non-press, I couldn't get too close.  However, I DID hear a lot of Mormon hymns being sung, and at least a dozen prayer circles.

Apparently if you're in a church choir, you're going to make a GREAT pop star...

I was half-tempted to audition, just to be on TV as one of the 'fools' they have every year, but this was the C-list bus.  No star judges, no TV cameras.  You have to make it through the first cut in order to audition in front of the real AI screeners.

So no Brandon in a banana suit this year.

However, I am happy to report that out of the 1,500+ that auditioned, ONE person made it to the next round (whatever that may be).  In other words, there is one talented singer in the entire state of Idaho.

Unless they were all at the rodeo.  There was also a rodeo this weekend (the largest in Idaho, YEE HAW) so there's a safe bet that all the REAL talent (cough) was there...

Heh...
Please Share it! :)

Aww, such a shame you didn't get to have a go.
Not that your efforts would be seen here.
Idol (American and Aussie) is long gone from our screens

I think I'd rather go to a rodeo than go and see those auditions. I'd also rather dip my nads in fish paste and dangle them in a pool of ravenous sharks.

it will be like, just kick me in the junk...

It could be that the real talented people refused to be taken in by that crap!

Zombie said...

You should have went out for it!

I was really hoping we'd see video of you singing something ridiculous, and then being escorted off the premises forcibly. Maybe next time?

Nice! I think I saw the big sign at the Arena said something about Idol coming here as well, GAWD! I remember the Hung boy and his shabang. Awesome, that was the only Idol I ever saw. Dare I say I can't stand American Idol!?

You;ll kick yourself later for not trying out. Probably not as much as you'd have been kicked if you HAD! Just kidding.

L-Kat said...

Yeah, they were either at the rodeo or digging up potatoes....that's what you guys do there, right? ;)

Thank, Q said...

Carlton is like the best dancer... ever. I would have loved to see your rendition of "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" in a banana suit.
