You remember Paris Tassin from the early auditions? She was one of a few contestants who walked in with sad stories and ‘touched the hearts’ of the [[American Idol (2011 Series)|American Idol]] judges.
Sadly, Paris failed to live up to expectations during her group audition. She and her fellow singers gave a screechy, out of tune rendition of Rihanna’s Only Girl (In The World) while the judges looked on in despair.
Jennifer Lopez commented that the audition was “So disappointing,” while Steven Tyler told the girls “It made it excruciatingly painful for us up here to see that.” So, despite looking like a serious contender just a couple of weeks ago, Paris is sent home. Although I think the tuneless backing from the other girls may have made it difficult to stay on melody.
Paris was so upset after the rejection that she couldn’t even speak to Ryan Seacrest.
