I’m going to try a new live-blogging thing tonight, just for kicks. If you’re reading during the show, you should be able to keep watching this page and see the post update without having to reload the page. You can also submit comments at any time, which I can display inline. It seems like a really cool platform, and won’t limit me to 140 characters, like Twitter does. That could be good or bad. ;)
I just realized that I forgot to ever post about last week’s shows. Tuesday I liked Samantha (the girl who came in with her friend, both of them enamored of Simon) and David (the boy who had struggled with paralyzed vocal chords) the best. I don’t remember on Wednesday, honestly. I watched it the next day and didn’t take notes, and don’t remember being particularly blow away by anyone. My continuing gripe this year is that Simon keeps saying “you’re just like everyone else and therefore we don’t want you” but the ones they choose are also just like everyone else. Although, I haven’t really seen any auditions that weren’t either good, but like everyone else, or awful. So maybe there just aren’t any original-sounding people willing to audition anymore.
Anyway, check back here at seven and we’ll try out CoverItLive.
