American Idol 8 – Phoenix, Arizona Auditions – Favs – Emily Wynne-Hughes

January 15, 2009

American Idol Season 8 is back! Who’s not excited? The producers promised a show that will showcase less blunders and more talent, and surprisingly, they did. Watching the flashbacks of past winners and the newest American Idol, all hail David Cook, was really satisfying. Especially Cook’s video, that gave me the goosebumps. Playing “A Daily AntheM” in the video was really appropriate.

The first audition stop in Phoenix, Arizona was quite promising.

I’ll be updating the site with my favourites in each city. Arizona presented someone that particularly caught my attention: Emily Wynne Hughes.

2-phoenix Emily, 21, hails from Los Angeles. She’s the lead singer of a band called Go Betty Go, and apparantly she ditched her bandmates to audition. Hehe.

Emily sang “Barracuda” (love that song) by Heart. It was really enjoyable. I think she’s really gorgeous, she’s good looking pass all those tattoos and piercings. Her voice somewhat resembles Fergie’s and her tattoos of course reminds everyone of Carly Smithson (in an incredibly good way). And it’s great to know that she’s bad at sports and maths and school. Hehe. Watch her audition here.

I hope she goes far in the Hollywood round! She’s my absolute fav from Arizona.

In other news, Kara DioGuardi as a fourth judge was interesting to watch. She really knows her stuff, and I’m glad to see that there’s someone tough in the judging panel other than Simon. Hehe. I’d like to see them battle it out.  Kara already bared her teeth to the bikini girl (what’s her name? Don’t really care, although it was a good laugh), who knows what else she can do.

Also, David Cook’s single “Light On” has officially passed the 500,000 mark, making it achieving gold status. Hopefully it’ll hit platinum soon. The album is almost there.

Go Emily Wynne-Hughes!
Go Cook!

David Cook Vlogs: Meet Dublin!

January 11, 2009

Mr David Cook has vlogged!! (finally.) It’s been what, around three months since his last vlog. And it really was worth the wait.

Cook wishes everyone a very happy new year while vlogging in front of his huge, new, shiny, framed platinum cover for The Time Of My Life. It looks really good hanging there. Here’s hoping he’ll get more of those when Light On and his self titled album achieves platinum status.

He introduces us to a new member of the Cook family, a super adorable puppy named Dublin. Plus, he also named a few tour dates, which oddly, doesn’t involve the much-hyped-about Philippines tour which is supposed to happen sometime this month. I don’t think that’ll happen anymore.

Meanwhile, Cook looks really exhausted. Probably tired from his breakup with Kimberly Caldwell, but for all we know, we hope that he’s okay and get well soon!

Support David Cook!
