'American Idol' in Salt Lake City: Better, no?

Posted on

I’ve done a lot of whining, moaning, and complaining about the lackluster talent being sent through to Hollywood on season 8 of American Idol, and while tonight’s Salt Lake City auditions featured didn’t exactly stray from that formula, I’ll say this much: I agreed with Simon’s assessment that a couple of contestants (hello, Megan Corkrey!) met the hard-to-define requirement of being memorable. So my question to you guys is this: After tonight’s show, are you more optimistic about Hollywood Week? (Me? I’m always optimistic about Hollywood Week, and especially so this year, since it’ll span a whopping four episodes.) And on that note, I’m off to write my full TV Watch recap, which will post around 6 a.m. tomorrow. Until then, press play on our latest Idolatry installments below, then get buckwild in the comments section!
