Tuesday night saw the judges heading to Denver with guest judge Victoria Beckham returning for the last official audition episode. Thursday’s show was a recap of past auditions with the fitting title, Best of the Rest. Over one hundred thousand people showed up for Idol auditions but only 181 had what it takes to compete in Hollywood. Let’s check out the remaining contenders!


Denver Stand-Outs

  • Nicci Nix with her dewy skin and high speaking voice wowed the judges with her accomplished pop styled voice—the fact that she flew 14 hours from Italy for the audition didn’t hurt either. Her dedication paid off with four yeses and a golden ticket!
  • Bikini Boy Ty Hemmerling got 30 seconds into Achy Breaky Heart before the judges walked out on him.


  • Simon accused Casey James of having no personality, but Kara liked him so much she asked him to take off his shirt—and he agreed! He got a ticket to Hollywood, but his striptease antics won’t save him from Simon’s ax for long.
  • Haeley Vaughn wants to be the first black pop country singer and she just might get that chance with her ticket to Hollywood.
  • Jason Greene amused the judges with his bizarre sexual energy—and of course he sang I Touch Myself by the Divinyls—but sometimes amazing hair flipping isn’t enough to get you to Hollywood.
  • Kenny Everett, who calls himself “the male Mary J. Blige,” seemed to confuse loud with talented. Simon said he sounded like he’d been punched. Needless to say, he’ll be staying put in Denver.



  • Best Of The Rest

  • Jessica Furney sang Footsteps in the Sand, a song co-written by the man himself, Simon! The judges thought she’d improved since her audition last year and granted her a ticket to Hollywood.
  • Amanda Schetman teared up when the judges said she was overly dramatic and needs to work on her connection with the audience. Despite the dramatics, Amanda scored herself a golden ticket.
  • Lee Dewyze and the dreadlocked Crystal Bowersox both snagged a spot in Hollywood.


  • Adrian Chandtchi is 6”8’ but when he sang Only Fools Rush In in a high falsetto, Kara said he sounded like a 17-year-old choir boy. Simon said he sounded like he ate him. No dice for Adrian.
  • Didi Benami performed a Joss Stone-esque rendition of Hey Jude that got her a pass—Simon only granted her “a small yes.”
  • Stephanie Fisher tried out for the seventh time. Yes, seventh. Her frenzied performance of Fever failed to impress the judges. There’s always next year, Stephanie!

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
