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.
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!
