It begins. The drama. The insults. The wacky people. One one hand, I think the three celebrity judges can be down right rude. On the other hand, I bet they just get punch drunk sitting there reviewing person after person, trying to maintain some last shred of sanity.
And what is the saddest of all is to see someone completely decompose on camera. There were two girls, princess leia and someone I will call “sparkles”. It’s is amazing to me how invested people can get into believing and banking on being the next idol. Wow. Ya kind of have to know that if thousands upon thousands are auditioning, and they are only taking a few to Hollywood, your chances would be better at being a place kicker in the NFL.
Perhaps the saddest comment of all came from Simon. After he heard someone celebrating in the hall because someone got a ticket to the next round, he told Randy and Paula he couldn’t understand why people are celebrating because someone else got to go. Wow. In other words, the only time he celebrates, I guess, is when he wins or succeeds. That is sad that he can’t celebrate when someone succeeds. I sat there wondering what kind of emotional baggage he was carrying to have that kind of outlook.
