American Idol: Season 11, Week 1 :: Audition #1, 2 & 3

Jan 20, 2011

This week on American Idol (Season 11, Episode 1), the new season kicks off in Savanagh, Georgia, where the judges discovered a ton of new talent. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “Audition #1” which aired on January 18, 2012, to discover what you missed.

Audition #1: Savanagh, Georgia

Day 1 in Savanagh, Georgia, delivered a ton of young talent including 17-year-old David Leathers Jr. (also known as “Mr. Steal-Your-Girl”). He beat Scotty McCreery in a local singing competition, so it was no surprise when he wowed the judges. We also met other talented singers, including 16-year-old Gabi Carrubba who is also a world champion tap dancer; 15-year-old Shannon Magraine, whose father played in the World Series; and siblings Schyler and Colton Dixon.

The judges met some interesting characters in Savanagh, including Shaun Kraisman, a terrific Ryan Seacrest impersonator, and 24-year-old Amy Brumfield, who currently lives with her boyfriend in a tent in the woods.

Audition #2: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Audition #2 took the judges to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for the first time in American Idol history. There we met some stand-out talent, including the wacky Creighton Fraker, who made up his own audition song during his long bus ride from New York. Other amazing singers included 15-year-old Eben Franckewitz, who resembles Justin Bieber; Erika Van Pelt, a wedding singer and mobile DJ; and 24-year-old Hallie Day, who overcame a drug addition.

Audition #3: San Diego, California 

On Sunday, the judges moved on to San Diego, California, were they met young mom Ashley Robles, who shined with a Whitney Houston song; rapper Alexa Shields, who appeared on the Ellen show; and 19-year-old frat boy Kyle Crews, who had the best male voice the judges had seen so far. Last but not least, Jim Carrey's 24-year-old daughter Jane auditioned. She wasn't great, but the judges put her through to Hollywood anyway.
