I usually skip the audition shows and just watch the performances on YouTube. Last night I made the mistake of watching the TV show. Waste of 2 hours. Other than the final contestant, Ricky Duran, I was not that impressed by the rest of the singers. There were a couple who were promising (like the one who was told she sounded kind of like Kelly Clarkson, or the nice looking guy who sang a kind of jazzy song). But that's it.
A great deal of the 2 hours was about the singers' back stories. Family members who tragically died, growing up in a poor family, immigrating to the U.S., etc. Singers who put their singing careers on hold because of unexpected pregnancies/tragedies/etc. THE USUAL. Sorry to sound hard-hearted, but I'm just not interested in that stuff anymore.
Is Kelly taking some sort of "upper"? IMHO, that's how she's acting. A little too fast, too chatty, too out there. Yikes.
