My impression of American Idol has always been that the contestants are either terminally weird or vacuously pretty, with the sort of pop vocal stylings that make Mariah Carey so boring to listen to. Imagine my surprise, then, when Christie and I got lured by the promise of a total freakshow into watching the audtions, and got to see people make it to the top group who are clearly channelling Billy Holiday and Joe Cocker.
