The parking lot outside the Cow Palace is finally empty, as the judges sum up the audition process, now that it's over. What none of them is saying is what I'm thinking, which is that we probably haven't seen anyone who's worth five million dollars yet. As for what's coming up, there's no host to tell us what the next steps are, so the judges talk about the future in the vaguest possible terms, and we see some quick clips of the standouts and meltdowns and weirdoes we've seen so far. And then there's the contestants.
Next week: bootcamp, in Miami. Where bootcamp is apparently one word. And guess what? More meltdowns, apparently. Can't wait.
