From forty gallon dumbass we go to the ten gallon hat wearing Tate Stevens. Tate is a road worker who loves his family. His biggest supporters are his kids who have told him that he should have done this long ago. Aw. Cute. Blech. Usually when kids are this happy to see daddy/mommy onstage it is a horrible mess. I can’t handle this right after Deangelo. Tate heads onstage where Demi asks him what kind of music he likes to sing. Without missing a beat Tate says,”Rap.” LOL Of course Tate will not be rapping for us.

I stand corrected (today and today only). Tate has this great Garth Brooks-esque voice. Such great tone and timber. It’s even note perfect. This dude is good. The judges OF COURSE agree with me and Tate gets four YAY!’s. I truly believe he will get far on this show.
FINALLY. Simon’s back!! And we get a group of man candy!
It’s a group audition by a group called Citizen. I’ll take two please. As long as they ssshhhhh. I like pretty for the lookin’ not the talkin’. I kinda hope they aren’t Hot Nots. I could use some eye candy this season.

They choreographed it. Meh. They definitely look better than they sound but at least they do well on the harmonies. But one dude’s runs are wrecking the whole thing. Stop it dude. Demi, Brit, and LA love them but Simon, “Doesn’t get it.” Have I mentioned that I love Simon? Simon tells them no even before the vote. LMAO. The other three give YAY!’s though so they are through. I hope they sing a lot of songs with no shirts.
Oooh look! It’s the montage of suck. Tonight the judge on fire is my Simon. Let’s listen;
“That, to me, was like something out of a horror movie.”
“It was like the six of you were waiting for a bus and someone said,”Can you sing us a Demi Lovato song.”"
“I thought the song choice was boring. I won’t remember you in fifteen minutes.”
“You’re a bit like a singing candle, you just stand there and melt. I wouldn’t play that at my funeral.”
SO in love with him.
The next contestant on the Price Is Right…er…X Factor is a young lady named Diamond White. Diamond is 13 and her mom has the longest scary gross fingernails. Diamond is this week’s, fatherless, small homed, poor kid. She’s spunky despite her life blah, blah, blah. Oh yeah and her whole family believe in her. Shock.

Diamond sings a little flat but she has a great big voice with no vibrato. Yay! She needs more practice but truly she is great for a 13 year old. The judges blow some smoke her way and give her four YAY!’s. I don’t see her making it past the judges houses.
