'American Idol': The Atlanta auditions (with Mary J. Blige) are on NOW!

Posted on

The second episode of American Idol‘s ninth season — with guest judge Mary J. Blige in Atlanta — is nigh! So before I begin enforcing a code of strict, military-style silence in my apartment, let’s all bust out a song to the tune of Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” All together now:

All you future Idols, you future Idols

All you future Idols, you future Idols

All you future Idols, you future Idols

All you future Idols

Your number’s come up

Get in the zone, make it your own

The British judge is wearing a T

As Kara yips, don’t give her no lip

Or try to club her in the knee

Singin’ X-tina, sing like you mean it

Don’t pay Randy any attention

He’s shown no reason, for eight long seasons

He’s all “for you, for me”

Cause if they like you then you’re gonna go to Hell Week

If they like you then you’re gonna go to Hell Week

Don’t be mad once they give you your critique

Cause if they like you then you’re gonna go to Hell Week

Oh, oh, oh

Okay, that’s enough trying to emulate the Beyoncé “robot hand.” So grab the remote and hit the mute button whenever anyone says they sound like Mariah and/or Kara opens her incessant maw. I’ll post my instant reaction to the episode at PopWatch (around 10:15 p.m. EDT) and then a full TV Watch recap on EW.com in the early a.m. Enjoy, and by all means, comment like a beast below — but only if you follow me on Twitter @EWMichaelSlezak. (Oh, and if you missed it, check out my full recap of Idol’s Boston audition episode here.)
