This is the most American Idol we've watched since season 1. This is still my favorite part of the entire show: the bad auditions are unbeatable. It seems like even Paula is a little less sympathetic to the bad singers. One thing that's bothered me this year is the doors of the audition room. Some producer thought it would be humorous to leave one of the exit doors locked, offering up some embarrassing moments for people who just completely embarrassed themselves. There's no other reason to have the door locked; it's a quick exit push bar. I've been telling Kelly about it for weeks and, sure enough, tonight was their "locked door montage."
Of course, why am I expecting American Idol to be sophisticated? The snow is making me crazy.
