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.

BOSS BABY REVIEW:Today, I went to see Boss Baby. I honestly had never heard of Boss Baby until my boyfriend told me about it, but to my surprise, it was a great movie!Plot: A baby who works for Baby Corp. was sent on a mission to Timothy's parents house to destroy Puppy Corps. new puppy design. Puppies were getting more love and attention than the baby, so they wanted to destroy the company. Before the baby met Timothy, he never knew what love meant! Although you would expect this to be about a baby destroying another company, it actually teaches us an important lesson about love (and it's also really funny).Rating:I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars, and I would highly recommend it to anyone of any age. :)
