Up first , Phoenix where 100,000 people turned out to audition for season 8 and meet the new judge Kara DioGuardi.
I laughed, I cried… no just kidding, but I did wonder if some of these people have sang in front of anyone besides themselves in the mirror. Their friends and families should be ashamed for letting them go on national TV believing they have any talent. A few performers were very impressive, 27 people were given the golden ticket-on to Hollywood.
The panel of four judges, newcomer Kara DioGuardi, who joins Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson were in agreement for most of their discussions. Until bikini girl showed up, then the votes were split down gender lines. Looks like another exciting season and maybe the birth of a new star.
