'American Idol' Recap: New York City auditions

After long deliberation, given the time commitment that's involved in posting my detailed recaps about "American Idol," I decided to continue to do them, but with a twist. Instead of posting two different versions -- one on LJ with embedded videos and one on Yahoo! -- I'm going to post all my recaps on Yahoo! This will save me some time, as well as maximize the Yahoo! hits I'll get for each article.

Here's my first recap of the season: 'Feuding' Judges Play Nice in NYC

If you're interested in viewing videos of the performances, I highly recommend Human Slinky's video channel on DailyMotion.com. One caveat: because they're not on the official "American Idol" site, I have no idea how long they'll remain online. When the regular season starts, videos of most performances will be available on the official "American Idol" site.

Please continue to comment here and let me know what you think. What do you think were the stand-outs so far?

LJI Exhibit A: Count Me In!

Gary has posted the sign-up sheet for "Exhibit A" (an abbreviated season) of therealljidol: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/609906.html

I've been thinking about this for months, and what the heck? I'm (not so) tanned, rested and ready to go! I'll be competing in LJ Idol's Exhibit A!

If you're thinking about playing, don't delay too long: there's a cut-off of only 75 players.
