There's a huge difference between American Idol before and after Hollywood Week. Fans of true vocal talent like the "after" part -- when the contestants are all competent, serious singers. But fans of hilariously awful performances -- such as this week's "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" rendition by Brian Krause -- prefer the pre-Hollywood auditions. So, is it cruel for the judges to ridicule these socially awkward hopefuls and for viewers to mock them at home? Surely the contestants have all seen the show before auditioning and are well aware of what they're getting into. Our take? If you're brave enough to stand in front of Simon Cowell, you can probably handle any teasing that comes your way.
