On The Real Housewives of Atlanta this season, it has been a pleasure to watch Kandi Burruss create and produce her own musical, A Mother’s Love, (she also starred in it when it hit an Atlanta stage last November) but as we can see from a sneak peek of the February 9 episode, the casting and production process was not an easy one.

In the below clip Kandi sits with her team as they suffer through a number of bad auditions. Don Juan encourages our girl to keep her expectations realistic, while other members of her crew acknowledge that some of the people auditioning may just be looking for an opportunity to belt one out in front of Kandi. We followed Don Juan’s advice and didn’t get our hopes up, but we certainly weren’t prepared for these cringe-worthy tryouts.

“I think we’re going to find someone,” Kandi said hopefully before the first person walked in.

Several bone-chilling (and not in a good way) renditions of “Amazing Grace” followed, and none of them caught Kandi’s interest. Our ears were ringing after watching the clip, but we think you should watch it for yourself instead of just taking our word for it.

Do you think Kandi is being too hard on the guys and gals who auditioned for her? Check out the sneak peek and tell us what you think below!
