While AI was, as always, enjoyable, the Windy City auditions were a wee bit disappointing.
Sure there was the requisite taunting of the tone deaf, and yes there was a dude in drag –Hirsute Heidi’s voice could spoil milk, but what was really unforgivable was his flagrant display of chicken legs -, and yeah, there was that sexy Russian babe whose performance - more cabaret than qual-i-tay - prompted Paula to tear her shirt off… but it’s not like Paula hasn’t lost her top for a contestant before.
What up Corey Clark, you skeezy cheeser.
