Here we go! Paula says the Top 12 are off to an "amazing, amazing start."
Group song time. They're singing Katy Perry's "Hot and Cold." It makes me a little upset because when I first heard Seacrest say Katy Perry, I thought it was going to be "I Kissed a Girl." How much would you love to see Nathaniel Marshall in that one?
Anyway, the group song is as campy as ever, maybe even more so this time because a big part of it revolves around sitting down...presumably to account for Scott.
The arrangement seems a bit too high-pitched for everyone involved, though I love watching Alex Wagner-Trugman trying to act tough. It never gets old.
Oh, and did anyone else kind of enjoy the auditioner who sang "The Jeffersons" theme during commercials?
