American Idol auditions recap – New York and Chicago

I’m still not sure what to make of this 13th season of American Idol. The constant switching of judges over the past few years has been unnerving at best. And with this year’s crew, the only addition that seems like a good option is Keith Urban. In my opinion, at the risk of sounding nasty, Mariah used to be a good singer until she became more of a screecher/screamer and Nicki  can’t sing, she raps.

That being what it is, I thought it might be interesting to see what kind of talent the group would let through to the Hollywood. And here’s how I see it.

Christina

From the New York auditions:

New York was a bit surprising in that it seemed as though the city didn’t have that many real standouts. The only two that are likely to be potential contenders in the end where the outstanding Christina “Isabelle” and the skillful Frankie Ford. Others that showed potential to blossom into players that may make a run include the following (in this order):

Angela Miller

Ashlee Feliciano

Sarah Restuccio

Shira Gavrielov

Gupreet Singh Sarin

Mackenzie Wasner American Idol

From the Chicago auditions:

Conversely to the NY outcome, I’d say that the number of highly talented performers in Chicago was quite astounding. I’d even venture to guess that the number singers who might have a chance to really beak out may even reach the double digits, which seems pretty rare for Idol auditions. The best where probably MacKenzie Wasner, Lazaro Arbos and Brandy Neelly with Isabelle Parell close behind. Others that could end up making a run include (in the following order):

Stephanie Schimel

Mariah Pulice

Clifton Duffin

Josh Holiday

Kez Ban

Johnny Keyser

Griffin Peterson

Here’s looking forward to the next set of auditions this season.

American Idol St. Louis Auditions

As the city of St. Louis closed out the audition rounds on this season’s American Idol, the “Gateway to the West” seemed to produce some quality talent.

This was the audition site that brought us Carrie Underwood eight years ago. Perhaps lightning will strike twice with a hopeful from this season.

Here’s how I rate the confirmed golden ticket winner thus far:

1. Lauren Gray

2. Ethan Jones

3. Johnny Keyser

4. Rachel Lamb

5. Reese Kloeckner
