Excuse me for a second; let me clear my throat to sound more like Ryan Seacrest....
Welcome to American Idol (AI) Season 7…did I sound like Ryan at all??
Well, let’s get to the good stuff.
We start off Season 7 in Philadelphia. We are treated to a tour of Philly and a brief history as well. Did you know Ben Franklin was from Philly? Neither did I.
We are told this is a record setting crowd for AI and then we meet our 1st contestant of the season, Joey. Joey has lost 200lbs and that is his story. He sings Maroon 5’s Sunday Morning and does it justice. My daughter, aka my mini me, gives him a 5 out of 5 and I kinda agree though I don’t like Maroon 5. Therefore, I do have to knock a point off for that. But despite what I think, the judges love him and he’s not only our 1st contestant, he is the 1st one off to Hollywood.
