Last week, Paul brought you the story of Akron Watson, the American Idol hopeful who’d been stripped of the chance to go to Hollywood, possibly because of a past marijuana possession charge. I’ve been trying to avoid the Idol audition shows for the last few weeks (I prefer my Idol-related entertainment in the form of Paula Abdul’s off-air antics), but last night, I caught just enough to see Akron and his cousin audition. His segment was not cut from the show, nor was any mention made of his dismissal. The guy’s pretty good. Watch him here. Then, if you feel so inclined, you can support him here, where he mentions an article that supposedly ran in the print edition of FrontBurner. Who knew?
