Idol Live with Nicole! Auditions Pt.5

Part 5 of the auditions takes place tonight in Austin. I believe there will be eight audition shows in all. Thats about four more than enough for me! Only an hour tonight though so whoo hoo!!

At the beginning of the show they show us some disclaimer (which I am assuming is fake) apologizing for last week's behavior by Steven Tyler. Yup it was fake seeing as how they show a clip of a kid who's name is "Jake Muck" and Steven asking him if he knows what Muck rhymes with. Steven then looks a little hung over as he gets out of the horse and carriage? for the start of the day and Marc Anthony makes a cameo.

The show kicks off with Cory, 21, who didn't meet his sister until they were in their teens even though they lived 15 mins away from each other their whole lives. HIs sister is very intrigued by the little bitty mics they have attached to their shirts during the interview. The judges have Cory go get his sister so she can judge his singing with them. Cory sings "I Can't Make You Love Me" and its not very good in my opinion. It gets a smidge better as it goes on. His sister says she thinks it was amazing. Randy was pleastnly surprised seeing as how his speaking voice is so high. JLo and Steven both liked him also. I'm still thinking "eh", but he gets through to Hollywood. He leaves after telling them he has always been told he has a JLo booty (which he actually does).

Hollie, 17, is up next and she sings "At Last". She puts a little country twist on it. Judges weren't a fan at all really. Randy says she's not ready yet, but Jennifer wants to know if she can stop crying enough to try another song. She then sings "The Climb" and she barely makes it through without crying. It gets better as she goes on. JLo and Steven both say yes and Randy changes his mind meaning she is also through to Hollywood. Hopefully she gets it together by Hollywood or she will never make it to the live shows.

Montage of people who didn't make it through are next. Rodolofo butchers "Circle of Life" so I guess he should've been included in that montage instead of actually being featured.

John Wayne Schultz, 23, works on a ranch. Apparently he is an authentic cowboy. His mom was diagnosed in 2007 with breast cancer. She told him to try out for Idol. He is probably the cutest contestant that has been featured this season, thus far. John sings "I Believe" and its kinda boring. He's got a decent country voice, but not sure how he will do with other genres (I think I have said this about many other people also this season). Randy has him go get his parents so they can be there when the judges tell him "Welcome to Hollywood".

Courtney,17, thinks Ryan is the sexiest man alive. Her obsession seems to border a little along the stalker lines. She is crying when she gets to meet him. The girl seriously seems a little crazy. Yup, she imitates a chicken next. She is crazy! She sings "Stay" and its actually pretty good. Seems all the crazy ones can sing this season. Got to be a little over the top at the end. She is through to Hollywood courtesy of Steven and Jennifer. Ryan should be thrilled.

Shauntel,24 , is up first after commercial. Followed by Alex, 26 and Caleb, 19. They all get about 10 secs of airtime, but are all sent to Hollywood. Wow they are playing "Beautiful Day" by Lee Dewyze in the background. I'm pretty sure thats the first time I've heard it since the finale last May. Turns out Alex, Shauntel, and Caleb weren't the only ones to get through. Apparently many people got through that morning.

Jacqueline, 21 and Nick, 19 are next. They are boyfriend and girlfriend who met in choir in college. Next we are shown the most cheesy montage ever. They want to be American Idol's first "power couple". Jacqueline goes first and sings "Mercy". She actually is pretty good. NIck goes next with "Sunday Morning". He has an intersting tone to his voice. Reminds me of Michael Buble a little?? The judges loved both of them and they are continuing on their journey to become Idol's first power couple.

Janelle, sets the record straight about "country people". Her family has been trying to get her to audition for 5 years. She sings two songs and is probably one of the best of the night. She is through to Hollywood.

After being shown a short montage of many strange contestants followed by yet another commerical break, we meet the last contestant of the night. Casey, 19, gets told he looks like Seth Rogen. He plays some instrument that looks like a keyboard that you blow into. He sings "I Don't Need No Doctor". Well it is entertaining, but in a good way. The judges give him a "yes" in sync.

Tomorrow night the auditions head to Los Angeles.
