Top Ten Best American Idol Auditions
The Top Ten
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
Lots of strength in his character. He was robbed of the Idol title, but he was never bitter about it. He has a big heart with huge talents too. The actual winner in his season disappeared from the entertainment industry with nearly nobody even remembering what the heck his name was. Adam has suffered lots of setbacks because he's always honest & stays true to himself. He deserves to shine way brighter than some singers who can only rely on their looks & marketing team.
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!
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 - rbndelrio
Because everyone else is so damn boring!
William Hung is like Pink Floyd compared to Adam Lambert, et al
Platt is the best, including "Pants On the Ground!
Who knew an audition would make a fat, anti-Semitic, child molesting Texan go global?
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
Kelly Clarkson's American Idol audition was SUPERB & she followed it up to be the BEST AMERICAN IDOL CONTESTANT of all time.
Kelly Clarkson's audition was SUPERB & she continued to wow the audiences & the judges from then on... the absolute best.
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!
Every week his performance left everything on the stage. In the finale, his extraordinary musical ability, and his desire to bring everyone's performance up to amazing was so evident. He will always be the greatest talent to ever grace American Idol.
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
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 air
her voice blew me away! she should have won! - idolangelx13
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 love her!
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. - 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.
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.
Yas! She has a great voice, and she is just so amazing. carrie underwood is also the one girl that dosnt fly down naked on a wrecking ball fwi
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
shes tha best! she shulda won! - horrorfan
WHY DIDNT HE MAKE IT TO THE TOP 12! -
One of my favorite auditions. - Shakester
Whoever put Archuleta is stupid. Yes, he is a good artist. He didn't have a good audition though. He forgot the lyrics!
Dalton's audition was incredible! I knew the song, but didn't really like it all that much (it was okay) and then he started singing and it was a "woah" moment for me. Then he keeps going in the competition and keeps pulling all these incredible performances, some of which included "Rebel Yell", "It's Gonna Be Me", "Eleanor Rigby", and "Bird Set Free". His audition was really memorable to me. He's in the top 3 now, so I hope he wins, but if he doesn't he'll still go far!
Dalton's audition was amazing, it wowed me a lot! I never thought that that song could be sung like that and still done well. His version of it is really great!
This should bring a tear to your eye. - ilovekelly75
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.
I think her audition was one of the best of the season I think it was superb she should've made A HECK OF A LOT farther
This audition gave me chills. At 16 years old, she really showed some great vocals. - miltwong
Best singer of beautiful songs
I still remember the melodica and the "I Don't Need No Doctor" cover!
It's great watching his audition all the time because he is still the same person he was back then - so humble, funny and talented.
