Cashing Out: 7 thoughts from last night

Mayer Jr.?

Mayer Jr.?

1. First of all …
Austin and Boston on the same show? Probably the two best cities in America, not to mention the underlining joke of Austin, Massachusetts by Tom Green in Road Trip. Also interesting how they’re in Gillette Stadium surrounded by Patriot Place and then miraculously on the Boston waterfront. Must have sent all 15,000 contestants upstate cattle-car style.

2. Harry Connick Jr. …
Everyone loves him. ZERO people can name one song he’s ever done. I only know he really really loves New Orleans.

3. The Judges …
Couldn’t be more nice, which equals boring. I wouldn’t be surprised if they give everyone a golden ticket this year, at the very least an “AI Participation Ticket.” Not having my main dog Randy sucks. These judges will have everyone in it to win it. I mean, come on; 46 Golden Tickets? (or whatever recycled paper ticket they have this year).

4. Lots of Grace Potter covers with “Ooh La La” …
Partied with them at SXSW in 2007 when they were unheard of and Grace was still a hippie from Vermont. Now she’s a sexy minx and everyone’s forgotten about the Nocturnals. But I digress. The song selections last night SUCKED BALLS. If I was a contestant, I wouldn’t have picked any of those jams.

5. The Chamber …
What in the hell is that thing? So let me get this straight, you’re going to put 15-year old girls in a box and scare the shit out of them. Brilliant.. I think it looks something out of a Saw III movie or a Japanese porn. I’m just pumped to see when the African-American family comes 19 deep and they all have to huddle in there before De’Deaqui goes for her life dream.

6. Sam Woolf & Ethan Thompson = John Mayer Jrs. …
I don’t care who wins, just as long as they open for Mayer like Phil Phillips did this summer.

7. Madelyn Patterson …
For the win. Top 20 in Hollywood, no question.
