American Idol 2010 “Road to Hollywood” Episode Hits Dead End

The “Road to Hollywood” episode for American Idol Season 9 felt to me like they just needed to fill an hour of time and threw this together. 

It griped me that for the first half hour it was all Victoria again.  We saw brief peeks at the other guest judges but they are sure making it a point to show Posh in that purple dress an awful lot.  I’m not into her or her judging ability or the, all about how the contestants look, attitude she brings to the table.  I mean look at Susan Boyle.  No one would say she was amazing to look at but what an incredible voice!  She has sold millions of albums so in my opinion, everything Posh has represented at these auditions is a load of crap.

The highlight was seeing all the hopefuls who actually made it into the Top 24.  First up was Lee DeWyze whom we saw for all of 5 seconds and the same with Crystal Bowersox.  Then we had Lacey Brown who sang “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and Michael “Big Mike” Lynche that was almost disqualified from the competition because his father squeeled the news to a local newspaper that he had made it to the top 24.  We Also saw Aaron Kelly, a 16 year old who was adopted by his aunt.  He sang “The Climb” and had a good voice.

My favorite of the night was Didi Benami who sang “Hey Jude.”  She said she was singing for her best friend Rebecca who had passed away.  She kind of sounded like Nora Jones and I hope she does well.

How did you like this episode and which of these contenders do you want to see more of?

  1. I loved aaron! He has a great story and I believe “the climb” was just the song for him. Hope he does well.

  2. WELL THEY FINALLY SHOWED US SOME GOOD TALENT LAST NIGHT…….EVEN THOUGH WE KNOW WHO THE TOP 24 ARE I STILL CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HOLLYWOOD WEEK NEXT WEEK…..

  3. Kara Dioguardi should have had her ass fired immediately for referring to the African-American gentleman as a “simian”. Did you see the look on that poor man’s face?

  4. I DIDN’T SEE NO ROSE ON THE LIST BUT MY LIST IS MISSING 2 GIRLS….I ONLY HAVE THE NAMES OF 22….

  5. Again, I’m waiting for the Final 24 which is the season kick off as far as we’re concerned. A recap of the finalists in tryouts is all we need to see – let’s get on with it!

  6. @#4 Dean – What is a simian? anyone?

    The fun is over, next week we will see the real singers. cant wait for Ellen debut.

  7. Hi Ashley.. if you don’t like posh i don’t think you need to say bad about her..
    in fact, she is one of the spice girls whos also sell million of albums around the world ..
    so, i don’t think it is fair what you have commented about her over this past weeks… just lets focus on the contestant

  8. avezya, I call it like I see it. She didn’t do well as a judge and they focused a lot of time on her. Also, I said nothing bad about her personally only her judging ability.

  9. Humans are included in the definition of Simian

    The simians (infraorder Simiiformes) are the “higher primates” familiar to most people: the Old World monkeys and apes, including humans, (together being the catarrhines), and the New World monkeys or platyrrhines. Simians tend to be larger than the “lower primates” or prosimians.

  10. I love the girl who sang Hey Jude too. I think she will definitely be among the top. The boy that sang the climb also did well. I can see him as like some kid star or something. Like Simon said, mother’s will like him.

  11. A little footnote from Denmark,Scandinavia, where AI aired its first episode of season 9 today.
    Strange to see, that Paula Abdul isn´t there anymore, and funny to see a new face on the scene:-).
    I don´t know what all the fuss is about, concerning Victoria Beckham! I find her to be a shy, yet gentle and nice woman, who tries to give her opinion on the set. I have heard, throgh the media, that she hasn´t been welcomed on AI, which i find just as foolish, as i did, when people complained about Simon Cowell…Need i mention, that his approval often is the most valued:-).
    Give her a break..It isn´t always easy to fill others shoes, but at least she is trying, and she is doing it just fine.
