This week American Idol was in Dallas, Texas to try and find some talent as big as the Lone Star State. In years past Texas has had some great singers including former winner Kelly Clarkson. The guest judges this week were How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris and teen heart throb Joe Jonas.

One of the first contestants was Julie, who previously tried out in 2000. She was back after a brief nine year hiatus and was more determined than ever. She claimed to have been taking acting and singing lessons and even had a sign proclaiming that this was her year. Apparently nine years of practice did nothing for her and like so many other American Idol contestants, Julie kept on singing after she was told an emphatic NO. I guess we’ll see you in 2018 Julie!

I’m also officially casting my vote for Neil Patrick Harris to be the replacement for Simon. I haven’t seen much of NPH since his Doogie days but the guy is genuinely funny. He’ll also tell people that they are sucky singers as well. His dry and sarcastic wit would serve the show well after Simon leaves.

One of the strangest auditions was Erica of Barney “fame.” Apparently she was on the kids show Barney as a child and was trying to escape that image by dressing up as a dominatrix. I think Erica forgot one tiny fact…no one in the entire universe would have ever known she was on Barney. Needless to say she escaped out from under Barney’s massive purple shadow and made it to Hollywood. In all 31 of the 11,000 hopefuls went on to the next round.
