American Idol 2011: Auditions Head To Austin

After another awesome week of watching Steven Tyler judge the hopefuls on American Idol 2011, I find myself wishing the show was on tonight instead of waiting for tomorrow.  I’m not liking the Wednesday/Thursday schedule change. 

I thought Milwaukee and Nashville brought some pretty good talent to us and I was pleasantly surprised to see not everyone in Nashville portrayed as a country music singer.  Of course it wouldn’t be the South if they didn’t show a few toothless overall clad contestants in the mix.  Of course the best was seeing Chelsee waiting to go on with whom I thought was her father but instead turned out to be her much older fiancee.  I guess she’s taking age before beauty to another level lol. 

I’m going to agree with the judges for a change and say Lauren Alaina was my favorite Idol hopeful in Nashville.  I thought she sang “I don’t wanna miss a thing” much better than “Like we never loved at all”. 

Tomorrow we head to Austin, Texas which is a beautiful place to live.  I worked there one summer and was quite impressed with the friendliness and overall atmosphere.  Watch out for Tim Halperin from Fort Worth as he is the only one on our list that we know for sure make the American Idol Top 40.
