Bob Dylan's "American Idol" audition

If a young Bob Dylan were to audition for American Idol...

(Dylan walks into the audition room.)

Simon: Hello, Bob is it?

Dylan: That's right.

Paula/Randy: Hello (etc.)

Randy: Where you from, Bob?

Dylan: I'm from Minnesota, but I live in New York now.

Simon: All right, Bob, what are you going to sing for us?

Dylan: It's a song I wrote called "Blowin' in the Wind."

Simon: All right, off you go.

Dylan: (Sings)

(Simon, Randy, and Paula look at each other in consternation.)

Simon (raising hand in a "stop" gesture): All right, that's enough. That was dreadful.

Randy (laughing but pretending to be trying not to laugh): Yo dawg, the way you mumble, I can't even understand what you're singing.

Paula (trying to be nice): You have a very nasal tone when you sing, haven't you ever noticed that?

Dylan: But did you like the song, man?

Simon: No. The music business is not for you. Paula?

Paula: Sorry, no.

Simon: Randy?

Randy: Sorry dawg, Simon's right. This isn't the business for you.

Dylan: You just don't get it, man.

Simon: No, you don't get it. Goodbye.

Dylan: (Leaves)

Watch "Blowin' in the Wind"
