American Idol Addendum

One long shot for the final twelve that I forgot to mention in my last post was a guy named Chris Sligh, who auditioned in Birmingham. On the surface, Chris doesn't look the part. He is an overweight kid with glasses and a white afro. However, his voice was good, always on pitch. On voice alone he probably wouldn't make it, but, as shown in the banter with the judges and with Ryan Seacrest, he has a tremendous sense of humor. If he can find the space to be funny in Hollywood, people may want to keep him around for the long haul.

Also, the contestant I called Branson Rogers in the above post is actually Brandon Rogers, also a background singer.
