American Idol Season 10 Auditions :: February 2

On the third week of auditions, the American Idol judges traveled to Austin, Texas. They had no trouble finding cowboys in Austin. But they did have trouble finding cowboys that can sing.


Audition #5: Austin

An inseparable young couple, Jacqueline and Nick, stood in front of the judges together. (Nick, with his unnaturally big smile, looked like a young Leonardo DiCaprio). Both sang beautifully individually, and the judges sent them to Hollywood.

One promising cowboy had the good looks, good values, a good voice and...a great name—John Wayne Schulz. He had no trouble convincing the judges that he deserved a golden ticket.

Ryan Seacrest was surprised to find a 17 year old Idol contestant tear up for his sake. Courtney Penry’s crush on Ryan had her blubbering like a baby. But that didn’t stop her from earning a free trip to Hollywood.

The Austin auditions ended on a very strong note when Seth Rogen look-a-like, Casey Abrams, busted out an unassuming voice that had the judges on their feet dancing. His unique voice will definitely take him far in the competition.

Audition #6: Los Angeles

LA is a place where stars are born. A place where hopeful musicians and actors go to get their big break. So it surprised the judges when most of the contestants turned out to be delusional wannabes rather than talented singers. Only a few who auditioned made it through to Hollywood, including a belly dancer with a decent voice whose hip-shaking earned her votes from Randy and Steven; Karen Rodriguez who hopes to become the first Latino American Idol; Tim Halperin who sang a Maroon 5 song; and two brothers who sang a beautiful duet. The bad auditions made the most impact on this episode. Especially Tynisha Roches, who arrived with her own microphone and wound up chasing Randy Jackson around the audition room. Psycho? We think so!

I can't believe no one's made a topic about this, or at least one that I've seen. It had some in tears, and it was all over the anime/cartoon/nerd world. For people who watch the Legend of Korra, what did you think about the finale? Are Korra and Asami and item? Do you think it adds up? One of the creators, Brian Konietzko, confirmed that Korrasami was canon. I just feel bad for Mako that both of his girlfriends ended up going for each other.
