Scott Macintyre — Blind Singer — Audition — American Idol 8

Scott Macintyre

Scott Macintyre — the blind singer — auditions in Phoenix for American Idol 8. This is a bit dangerous — if he makes it to the Top 36, he will get the sympathy vote for sure. In fairness, he is a very technical singer! His notes were very precise.

Probably an odd point to make at this time, but if Scott wasn't introduced as 'blind', I wouldn't have been able to detect it through those beautiful eyes of his. However, I realize the show plays on that type of back story.

If Scott was NOT legally blind, how would I rate his singing? Hmmm.

Average voice. Average delivery. Nothing exciting.

OK, so I haven't commented on here in a LOOOOONG time, because frankly it became too creepy for me to talk about David Archuleta every day. HA!

Anyway, I'm TOTALLY not into this blind guy. He just bores me, frankly. I'm sure I might offend some folks in here, but to say that he hits the notes right...well, so did Clay Aiken, and frankly his voice bores me as well. BUT, Clay has stage presence and a cool personality. This guy...blind or not...just not exciting. Sorry.

Every year they have a few sad stories. All these stories seem scripted...to sell the program.

I personally didn't like this guy.

His piano playing is just beautiful. I could listen to that all night. So soothing and just makes you feel so nice.
Honestly though, I think his voice was only just OK. It didn't really blow me away, but I still like him.

Loved him! He had a nice voice, I agree that it would be nice to hear him with the piano too. :)

Very nice voice. I hope people when he's in Hollywood he keeps the soft, smooth texture and not try to over-sing it.

OMG, I was mortified when Ryan tried to give him a high-five. If it was intentional, it was in bad taste. It it was just a boneheaded mistake, he really is an idiot.

I liked him. Hope he makes the Top 36 so I can hear him with his piano.
