Finally the ridiculous portion of the auditioning process is over and we get to watch the judges weed out the talented from the not so much. Speaking of judges, Ellen made her debut last night and I was pleased with her performance even though it was brief. I think she should be good as long as it doesn't turn into a stand-up routine each night. Simon also seemed to tolerate her which is a good first sign.
So what did I think of the musical performances? Two stuck out for me and here they are:
Andrew Garcia was my favorite last night and I had no idea someone could make a Paula Abdul song worth listening to.
Crystal Bowersox not only has the best name of the contestants, Bowersox, she can really sing. Dig it.
