Top Ten Best American Idol Auditions
Adam Lambert is the best! He has a beautiful and powerful voice. Adam uses mixed voice instead off falsetto and head voice in the high notes. Adam's voice is stronger and fuller in the high notes than the most male singers.
Adam also is an incredible showman and can sing ANY musical style.
So amazingly talented and gorgeous. I've loved Adam Lambert since his first Idol audition. So unique, talented, and gorgeous. Couldn't wait for Idol each week to see what Adam would do next. Adam always stayed true to himself. He had it figured out before he even started on the show.
It's too bad that Idol kept wanting the same type of singer to win. No disrespect because they are all talented but there is nothing memorable about most of them. I know they all have their fans who may say otherwise but Adam was in a league of his own. Although many who support others will likely disagree there is no denying Adam's talent.
Most of them wanted to play it safe and as a result in my opinion so many of them sound the same and singing the same kind of song. Nothing to make them stand out from the others. I find many of the singer/songwriter types so boring and uninteresting but, again, I know they have their fans. The whole point of American Idol I thought was to find the next ...more
Adam was so intriguing right from the start. It was so much fun to watch him each week and see how he made every song his own. He always sang with so much emotion, drawing in his audience, and totally commanding the stage. It's no wonder to me that he has gone on to have the global success that he has had. He's about to start a North American tour as front man for Queen, and has been spending a lot of time in the recording studios working on his fourth album. Can't wait to hear his new music and to watch him perform with Queen this summer. No doubt they will be rocking those arenas!
Adam's name is ALWAYS mentioned as one of the most successful Idols along with Kelly, Carrie, and JHud. He is without a doubt one of the most talented, charismatic, and memorable!
I've enjoyed watching Adam's career progress and can't wait to see what else he has in store for his fans!
Adam was so captivating right from the start. Amazing voice. I was glued to the T.V. every time Adam performed.
Adam made every song he sang his own. We had to suffer through so many karaoke performances from others who were so afraid to step outside the box. Too bad for them. Where are they now?
Adam went on to international stardom selling out his solo tours all over the world. He's also been the frontman for Queen for the past several years. Do people realize how extraordinary that is? Queen is LEGENDARY! What an honor for Adam that he was chosen by Brian May and Roger Taylor to sing their brilliant songs. They always say Adam has a voice that's one in a billion.
Adam brings his own brand of magic to everything he does. So amazingly talented!
The most memorable audition in American Idol. Ever.
It really is a mistake how Simon Cowell outright rejects this guy (but at least William Hung responded with class not sass) yet it was HIS idea to form One Direction at his X Factor, not to mention the fact that he distributed the Teletubbies song in the UK. Simon Cowell is a hypocrite.
William Hung's "worst" rendition of a song > The Best One Direction Song (and perhaps anything Simon Cowell produces)
William Hung taught people to follow your dreams, no matter the obstacles and deficiencies. Kelly Clarkson taught people to hate Jews.
His magically euphonious vocals have moved us deeply... from the couch to the floor, wetting ourselves
Because everyone else is so damn boring!
Platt is the best, including "Pants On the Ground!
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.
Kelly Clarkson's audition was SUPERB & she continued to wow the audiences & the judges from then on... the absolute best.
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.
Kelly had the best American Idol audition by far. The rest were ho hum BORING!
James Durbin's audition showed his tremendous talent and I saw it right away when he started singing. I knew then that he was going to go to Hollywood and I was going to keep watching. His performances were all stellar and memorable. I remember every one today as if it they just happened even though it has been about 6 years ago since he performed them. The day will come when everyone will see the talent I saw and his career will really take off. I look forward to that day.
From day one, I knew there was something special about James. He lit the stage up every performance. He could sing the phone book & make it into a full-blown concert! He should have won, in my opinion. I have watched him grow for 6 years & now his time has finally come. I thank AI for introducing us to our American Idol...DURBIN ROCKS!
One of the most touching auditions I have ever seen. His heart is truly in his music.
He was amazing every week. He put on an outstanding performance each and every time he stepped up on that stage.
My heart broke the night he was eliminated. I could not believe it.
I have continued to follow him and proudly own all of his CD's.
He is my AMERICAN IDOL!
He always, always gives an incredible, mind-blowing performance! He has an ability to connect with his audience and fans that most singers just don't. He always makes time to talk with fans and continuously advocates for charitable organizations that help people with disabilities. Thanks, Idol, for introducing us to JD!
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.
Yes her audition was amazing from her personality to her singing, she's like a breathe of fresh air
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.
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.
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?
Based on pure vocals, this may be the best original audition.
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.
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.
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.
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.
