American Idol 2011: What to Expect This Week With Auditions and Hollywood

Tomorrow night on American Idol 2011 the auditions end in San Francisco and I am so ready for them to be over so we can move a step closer to our top 20.  After last Thursday’s horrible hour of one bad audition after another, let’s keep our fingers crossed that San Fran can bring us some top rated singers. 

Here’s a few key hopefuls who have made it as far as the Top 40:

Brittney Mazur – a former ms outstanding teen which leads me to believe she was a beauty contestant.  I hope she sings well cause after witnessing some other beauty queens in reality shows I’m not holding my breath.  Others include Deandre “Kamele” Brackensick, Clint Gamboa, Julie Zorilla and James Durbin.  Hopefully the producers saw enough negative feedback from Los Angeles that they will showcase the most talented instead of the incessantly stupid. 

Thank goodness FOX decided to bring the audition process to an end and give us Hollywood a week early!  All the crappy singing on Thursday nights was really about to wear on me lol.  It’s not a good thing when you have to drink a bottle of wine to make it through an hour long TV show lol jk.  Of course a glass or two really does make the process so much easier.  Matt suggested the Wednesday and Thursday programs were being produced by two different people which makes a lot of sense to me because it’s like watching totally separate shows.  I hope we can get more of a sense of what life is like during hell week and hear some kick a$$ singing with some crazy Steven Tyler comments thrown in to make me laugh.  Please no drama and bs acting!  I’m tired of hearing about shows creating fake story lines because they need ratings!  I want to see the real thing!

What are you most looking forward to this week on American Idol?




  1. Who made this top 40 list? Have these people already been chosen by the judges or is this someone's wishlist?

    • Joe's Place compiled the last based on research. It's a speculative list for sure, but pretty reliable and at least a strong indicator of what to expect.

      • Thank you, Matt. Interesting….really have not seen a lot of these Top 40 audition. I have listened to some of the video's…there is definitely some strong talent out there. I agree with Ashli…it did appear that these shows were produced by 2 different people. So many of these people were not funny…it was almost painful to watch…they needed some serious psychiatric help. Bring on Hollywood Week…I am so ready. Whoo Hoo~!! 🙂

  2. I only hope tonight will be worth to watch. I am also tired of wanna be people. I cant understand why the producers dont show all those who got the golden ticket, they only jump outside I´m going to HOLLYWOOD and we could not watch their performances. Lets see how it goes tonight, hope we can really watch good talent and not stories and horrible outrageous singers to fill the time.

    • Hi Marta, Just so you don't waste your time looking,the shows are on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Don't ask me why because I really enjoyed them on Tues. & Wed……I also wish they were all 1 hour long and not 2……Too much BS going on.

      Ashli Rae…..I totally agree….must have been two different producers because they were two different type shows……I don't mind throwing in a couple of wannabes but not a whole show of them. There is so much talent this season, just show us more of them and less of the others!!!!!

      • Hi Marta…and please remember, like Phyllis said…the shows are on Wed. and Thurs. So so very ready for Hollywood Week…we will finally get to see all the talent we missed. Whoo Hoo~!! 🙂

      • Hi back girls 🙂 I forgot to say that I prefer Tuesdays and Wednesdays hate this new schedule.

        Thanks for your feedback 🙂

  3. Greetings Everyone! I have been looking forward, to watching Hollywood Week for awhile now!

    I have a dentist appointment tomorrow, and I am hoping that tomorrow night's auditions, will not be a reminder of being back at the dentist!

      • Angela…I hear you girl…last Thursday, watching AI was almost like having a tooth or teeth pulled~!!! So looking forward to this week so we can begin to start seeing all the talent showcased. Have a good one. Whoo Hoo~!! 🙂

  4. I love this year's panel. Steven is wild and funny; Jennifer is a lady and very beautiful; and Randy is always Randy. The panel is new, exciting and pleasant to watch. I hope the ratings will be very high. I thought I would miss Simon, but I do not – nor any of the others that left.

  5. I love the show this year. I was loosing interest and just watching the highlights. Steve, Jennifer and Randy are a top notch team and a blast to watch. I hope they stick around for many seasons. Good job Idol!
