The most popular question I've gotten since I left the Georgia Dome is, "Was anybody good?"
Sure. Honestly, I didn't see any total train wrecks...though I have a couple picks of people who likely made it through on novelty value. I heard really impressive things about some of the contestants advancing, and I'm excited to see how much the Atlanta pack is narrowed during the next round.
But even if someone gets all the buzz in the world at this phase, it's hard to gauge if that appeal will translate to TV.
Bottom line: While the talent levels seemed promising, we'll have to wait and see. But I swear the "Britney Spears Changed My Life" T-shirt guy will take the whole thing.
You heard it here first. Hahaha.
