Ladies and gentlemen, we have our first memorable “American Idol” contestant of 2010 (rejected division).
Meet Andrew Fenlon, who showed up to the Boston auditions and apparently expected to be whisked to the front of the line. That didn’t happen, so when he finally did meet the judges, he was a little peeved. “I’m gonna sing ‘House of the Rising Sun’ — do you know that song?” Um, yeah. I’m guessing they do.
The song itself? Eh. He didn’t do badly, but he didn’t really deserve a ticket to Hollywood either — which is exactly what happened. The money in this clip, though, is in Kara DioGuardi’s reaction: She’s peeved too, and it’s excellent TV. This was the Kara we got at the beginning of last season, who faded away when the live shows started. Here’s hoping we see more of that from her this season.
