American Idol Tryouts Aren't So Fun the Second Time Around
As you no doubt are aware, Simon, Paula and Randy are in town today and tomorrow, putting second-round American Idol wannabes through the paces at the W Hotel. But re-auditions started yesterday, and this guy who made it past the first round found the second phase of hoop-jumping more than a little disappointing.
Turns out, he thought he was going to meet the Idol judges, but wound up singing in front of Nigel Lythgoe, an exec producer of and judge on So You Think You Can Dance. "Bullshit -- that show's so stupid," says Martin, who couldn't even keep his audition "sticker." Oh, need I remind you some of this is a little, ah, NSWF? --Robert Wilonsky
