Top Ten Best American Idol Auditionsilovekelly75
The Top TenXW
It was really the first time a contestant played around with the judges and the host, and she was able to back it up with some amazing vocals. - ilovekelly75
Oh my gauch, her audition was so memorable! "I was just happy that the British man didn't make me cry". So humble and adorable! KELLY FOREVER.
She didn't bother with a big vocal song. In fact, she picked it as she was walking into the door. She did a very nice job with it. - ilovekelly75
I picked her to win from the very beginning. She has a really good personality and voice! Good thing she won!
Carrie is phenomenal. Her voice is like an angel. I loved her version of "Alone" by Heart.
The producers dwelled to much on his back story. That should not be held against James Durbin, as I think he had no influence on that. James was in the zone and the voice... OMG
I wanted James Durbin to win American idol! He was my favorite and the one that should have won!
That moment changed my life. Gave me hope and determination. Gave me back my love for music as well. Durbin Rocks
James Durbin rocked every performance on AI... He was my choice to win that season love him then and even more nowV11 Comments
The most memorable audition from American Idol Season 10. He was awesome and funny and very cool. When JLo told him "You have a deep voice", he was like "I get that a lot! ".
This guy should be on the TOP!
He is amazing! His voice sends shivers down my spines.
He should have won! Even the (sweet but totally unmemorable) winner said so!
I totally agree that he should have won. He was fantastic!
She was so nervous, and looked mortified walking in, and talking to the judges, but when she sang that first note, you knew she'd be around for a while. - ilovekelly75
Yes her audition was amazing from her personality to her singing, she's like a breathe of fresh airV1 Comment
Anybody with any knowledge of music, probably got chills during her performance of Killing Me Softly. She didn't make a huge performance out of it. She just stood there and sang as if she were talking in a normal conversation, and it was great. - ilovekelly75
I think her audition was great how she sang back and forth with Steven Tyler. She was only 15! What do the rest of you think?
His magically euphonious vocals have moved us deeply... from the couch to the floor, wetting ourselves - rbndelrioV3 Comments
Actually my favorite isn't listed. Julie Zorrilla, the Colombian immigrant now living in California. I was surprised she only made it to the top 24 and not the top 12, excuse me, 13.V1 Comment
Based on pure vocals, this may be the best original audition. - ilovekelly75
Clearly this man can sing & should have won that year. He has a voice that just comes out naturally when he sings. Something that is truly a gift from our Lord.
It was a shock when this boy opened his mouth, and was actually able to blow the roof off. - ilovekelly75
I feel Clay Aiken should have won American Idol the year he was on American Idol.
The judges said that for the second season, they'd like to have some great voices who did not fit the pop star image, and she gave that to them with this powerhouse performance. - ilovekelly75
Like I don't like her in general but that voice was literally astonishing but in a good way (: X.
She sang a country song, and a jazz standard, and showed her beautiful voice and versatility in just two songs. Without knowing that she'd later dissappoint, if you were to know she'd be out in just fifth, you'd be shocked. - ilovekelly75
I loved that she put her own twist into the songs she performed.
He sang The Star Spangled Banner, and it was the first and last time he proved he was a force to be reckoned with, receiving applause from all three judges, and a standing ovation from Randy and Paula. - ilovekelly75
