A joke and a half

I was so hoping to skip over Kady Malloy, the girl who can do the vocal impersonations. She was just kind of blah for me... but this is the girl Simon tells is the best one they've seen so far in the whole competition, so I should probably say something about her - she did a really good impersonation of Britney Spears - Carrie Underwood wasn't as good. But her singing voice was pretty good - I don't know if I'd say it was the best I've heard so far, but it was OK. She's through to Hollywood and I wonder if it's because of her voice or simply because Simon thinks she's cute. Only time will tell...

So Douglas Davidson is a joke - he looks like a joke, sounds like a joke and basically came on the show just to be a joke. So I can't even feel bad for him - he got what he wanted - he got on TV and people are talking about what a joke he is - mission accomplished. He comes on talking about how his dad hates him because he sings so well and how Christina Aguilera says you can permenently damage your voice if you don't know what you're doing and some other nonsense I don't remember. He gets in the room with the judges and starts warming up, making all kinds of weird noises. He eventually says, "I guess I'll start my audition now," and decides to sing Bon Jovi. As expected, it's awful - it sounds kind of like he's choking on his own voice. They tell him to stop and he continues to sing - they eventually have to get security to escort him out. Just terrible, but again - I applaud him because his intention was to be a joke and he carried it all through flawlessly.
