American Idol Season XIV Preliminary Auditions Week 4: Two Nights In San Francisco

Was it only me who thought the light and glow was a tad dimmer during last week’s American Idol audition episodes? In my opinion, some singers advanced that had questionable talent so we shall see what happens.

This week seems more hopeful – they are devoting two nights to San Francisco so that must mean that the judges found some great talent there, doesn’t it? Dare I hope too much?

Following the San Fran auditions, we will be headed to Hollywood Week for three weeks. Boy, that seems like overkill.

However, after two weeks in Hollywood, there is something called “Showcase” which I assume will highlight the Top 40. This precedes the Top 24 life semi-finals and this is when we can finally move forward with this show.

So, basically four more weeks of filler before we get down to the heart of the show. I don’t know, seven weeks of auditions are beyond tedious.

American Idol airs on Wednesday, January 28th and Thursday, January 29th at 8:00 PM on Fox.

I miss Adam Lambert. I thought I would put that put there. Anyone else feel the same way?

Okay Idol fans – what are your thoughts about this season? Are you excited? Have you spotted any favorites yet? Let’s get this party started.
