American Idol: Season 12, Week 1 :: Audition #1 and #2

Jan 17, 2013

This week on American Idol (Season 12, Week 1), a new season kicks off in New York and Chicago, where a feisty new panel of judges steal the show. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “Audition #1,” which aired on January 16, 2013 to discover what you missed.

Diva Judges

American Idol is supposed to be about finding America's next superstar. But after only one episode, it looks like season 12 is going to be all about the drama between new judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. Talk about divas! Mariah Carey is basking in the praise from worshipping fans, while a jealous Nicki Minaj is barely letting the other judges get a word in edgewise.

Memorable Contestants 

After 2 days in the Big Apple, only 41 contestants made it through to Hollywood. Some memorable ones included Tenna Torres, who attended Camp Mariah as a girl; Evan Ruggiero, who lost his leg to cancer but unfortunately didn't make it to Hollywood; Frankie Ford, a modest young guy who busks on trains for change; and 17-year-old Sarah Restuccio, who nearly didn't make it to Hollywood after singing a country song, but redeemed herself with a flawless rendition of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass."

The best of Chicago had to be 21-year-old Cuban cutie Lazaro Arbos. He struggles with a severe stutter, which miraculously disappears when he sings. He sang "Bridge Over Troubled Water," and had no trouble at all.  He may not be the best singer compared to some of the incredible talent already shown on this season, but he will certainly inspire millions.
