American Idol Season 8 Auditions: San Francisco delivers a dozen

If it's Tuesday, it must be American Idol.

This week we're watching auditions from San Francisco. My significant other says this will be a `freak show.' We'll see.

First up, a gal from Puerto Rico, Tatiana Del Toro. She's really beautiful until she starts laughing and my goodness, there are no words to describe the level of annoyance this chica reaches. The judges send her through simply because she's dramatic. Did I tell you she's wearing an evening dress with snake skin on the top, taffeta on the lower third and silver shoes?

Dean-Anthony Bradford. No, no, no. Bad jacket, bad hair, bad teeth, bad voice.

Okay, our first guy of the night counting on American Idol to make a better life for his family. Jesus Valenzula's dreams are immediately crushed by Simon, but he gets a second chance when he brings in his two little boys. Jesus squeaks through on the strength of his kids' personalities. Seriously, this guy doesn't have a voice.

Rubik's cube genius Dalton Powell underwhelms everyone with his personality and his voice. Sorry Dalton.

I don't understand anything about Akilah Askew-Gholston. I don't understand her clothes, her song, her puffer jacket, her hair, her voice, anything she's talking about. I don't understand anything. Please make her stop singing and talking and send her home.

John Twiford, Allison Iraheta, and Raquel Houghton are all headed to Hollywood. Allison is the only one I didn't like too much. Except Janis Joplin, I don't think I've ever loved anyone who sings Janis Joplin.

Annie Murdoch is over-the-top and awful.

Adam Lambert, from Hollywood is going back to Hollywood. Simon calls him theatrical. BTW, that's not a compliment, but it's a unanimous vote from the judges.

Sad story of the night. Contestant Kai Kalama put his dreams on hold to take care of his mother. Kai's mother developed a seizure disorder a year ago. I say let him through before he even sings. This, folks, is why I cannot be a judge or even write an unbiased recap. Who cares if he has any talent? Kai wants to win so he can make his mom proud and buy her a house. Kai has the cool factor, a great story and a pretty decent voice. Yep. They send him to Hollywood. We all cry when Kai calls his poor, sick mom.

Only a dozen contestants from big old San Francisco were sent on to Hollywood. Surprising.
