TVOM: "After pit stops in the hometowns of Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez, it’s time for American Idol to head to Harry Connick, Jr.’s old stompin’ grounds. Welcome to New Orleans! (NOLA, if you want to pretend to be cool when you say it.) We find ourselves in the birthplace of jazz, but I personally would be more impressed if Harry hailed from the birthplace of jazz hands, wherever that is. We get flashes of beads, Bourbon Street and crawfish, and Harry claims that New Orleans is notorious for “breeding potential superstars.” After a shaky start and some less-than-stellar auditions, we finally get to see some of that N’awlins talent Harry was talking about."
