There’s not a lot to say about Week 2, Season 13 of American Idol. Much the same as Week 1 with one exception – mercifully, Thursday night’s show from Atlanta will be one, yes, one hour! Can we have an Amen! And, and, and (drumroll please) there is a rumor that Larry “Pants On The Ground” Platt will make an encore appearance. If that is the case then this stacks up to be a memorable show.
But Wednesday was just another two-hour, too-long rendition with way too many contestants getting a Golden Ticket to Hollywood or wherever the next stop is going to be.
One name to remember – Khristian D’avis. She received a gold ticket and she exemplified most of what is wrong with this season’s show. Can’t sing, whines, more or less talked her way into a seat on an airplane headed west. Dawg Randy Jackson would have said no; Simon “T-shirt” Cowell would have been annoyed; and even Steven Tyler probably would have been appalled even though she is half-Italian.
With 40 more contestants getting a thumbs-up, we now have 119 Golden tickets handed out and less than a hundred to go.
Friday we take a long look at The Chamber!!!
