“This is the unassuming season,” declared Randy during this week’s Milwaukee auditions. Granted, it’s difficult to be anything but “unassuming” when your town’s claim to fame is cheese. (And Season 8’s Danny Gokey!)
That being said, Jackson’s statement has validity. Bullied ginger kids, portly crooners and image-impaired ingenues have helped form one of the running themes of Season 10: “don’t judge a book by its cover.” Tonight’s auditions continued along those lines with a White House intern, a friend-deprived auditor and, of course, a few talented teens.
That’s right. Yet again, the standouts are young. In fact, Seacrest even mentioned that every 15-year-old who auditioned on Day 1 had garnered a Golden Ticket.
