My homeboy and American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips has gone triple platinum with Home. Yet he says that song is way too pop for him and not his cup of tea. We’re off on a new season of American Idol. I am mainly watching to see what Nicki Minaj does with Mariah Carey. This will be random thoughts more than recap. Let’s get started!
Before their butts are even in the seats Mariah is going in on Nicki about bringing a drum major hat prop. Meanwhile they send a contest in to foot stomp his way in to audition and they are oblivious. Catfight number one. I think there have been about six more in the first three minutes. They are giving Mariah the diva edit. Part of the problem is that Randy is sitting in Simon’s chair but not doing Simon’s job which is to tell the other three judges when it is their turn to speak. Nicki is running the judges table. She is the moderator. Mariah hates that. Nicki tells the auditioner when to stop singing. She is in charge.
Mariah’s superfan is singing not so well and Mariah is not going to like it when Nicki speaks truth in 5..4..3.. Nicki turtled and let her through.
Okay I love the crack baby going through after a rough start. The first contestant I actually like. Not because he is a great singer, but just because. Frankie goes to Hollywood.
I was bored.
