OK, we know that editing has a lot to do with what we see on ‘American Idol’ audition episodes. It’s why -- as if facing the choice between a tractor beam and a cattle prod -- we’re guaranteed to love some contestants and hate others.

But sometimes, just sometimes, the contestant is Andrew Fenlon. And when this type of contestant appears, the ‘Idol’ producers must do a tiny little dance, thinking they’ve died and gone to this-guy’s-a-tool heaven.


Just watch the video above, and enjoy it as Kara DioGuardi absolutely loses her mind. Victoria Beckham too. Because it’s funny. And because you probably don’t like Andrew either.

Perhaps Simon Cowell summed it up best: ‘You’ve got very, very bad energy.’

Think Andrew got a raw deal? You can become his fan on Facebook. Maybe ask him for a date. He’s probably just misunderstood.

‘Hideously arrogant,’ Posh declared. ‘Even more arrogant than Simon.’

So, now, that’s done.

Let’s put our energy into Tyler Grady instead, shall we?
