We're on the "freezing cold shores" of Lake Michigan, in Milwaukee, the final stop for auditions. Has there been a single episode that doesn't whine about how cold it got? At least there's snow in Wisconsin. And Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French missionaries and explorers began visiting here in the late 16th century. Isn't Milwaukee an Indian name? Yes, Cat, it is. In fact, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que," which is Algonquin for "the good land."
But the words "final audition city" and "Milwaukee" make me re-check the schedule to make sure it actually is two hours tonight. Yep. That can only mean one thing: filler. Right off the top. Before we get to Milwaukee, we're going to see clips from earlier auditions they "didn't have time" to get to before. But first: a montage! You see, the dancers are having a "strange effect" on Nigel, which means he throws gang signs and says things like, "You off the leash, dog." And that about does it for wackiness overload for me.
