Another day, another catchphrase mangled by Randy Jackson. “Bring in the Kraken“? Seriously, dawg?
Then again, perhaps it was just the high altitude and low air pressure of Aspen, CO, that caused the third judge’s snafu (and decision to wear positively atroshe powder-blue shoes).
Whatever the case may be, the fourth audition episode of Idol‘s 11th season brought us a Lady Gaga wannabe (or, perhaps more accurately, a Rachel Zevita knockoff), Scotty McCreery 2.0, a kid who wrote his own audition song, and a promising young woman named Haley. (True confession: It’s going to be a test of my Idol-lovin’ heart to see if I can embrace a contestant who dares to share a name with Season 10’s legendary Growler.) (Click here if a reference to the Lady Reinhart requires immediate musical gratification.)
Anyhow, while I work on a full episode recap that will post Thursday morning here at TVLine, I’ll turn things over to you: Who was your favorite from the Aspen auditions? Sound off in the comments section, and for all my Idol news, interviews, and recaps, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
