On last night's American Idol episode we finished out the audition rounds in Oklahoma City. Thanks so much for finding ClevverMusic, here's your IDOL CAP with everything you need to know from last night's Idol which included puppets, forgotten lyrics, and a former judge guest star.
At the Oklahoma city auditions we saw our first ever ventriloquist audition, with her puppet Oscar. Halie Hilburn and her puppet dueted on "(I Want To Be) A Cowboys' Sweetheart" which included some yodeling. The judges asked her to sing another song solo, not with her puppet self so she sang "More Than Anyone" which was fantastic. They allowed her to go on to the next round, as long as she got rid of her puppet. Farewell Oscar.
Perhaps the contestant that made the biggest impression on the judges in Oklahoma City was 19-year-old Zoanette Johnson, a rehabilitation health specialist. Zoanette vowed if Obama won the election she would audition by singing the National Anthem, but she had a little trouble with the lyrics- so Mariah helped her out watch this.
But Zoanette wasn't done there, she actually made judge Keith Urban fall out of his chair with her high notes and dance moves check it out.
After that Nicki said, "I love you, I am obsessed with you." I don't know who Zoanette made it through to the next round with four yeses, but she did. We have to disagree with the judges on this one.
The most inspirational singer of the night was 16-year-old Kayden Stephenson, born with cystic fibrosis. Kayden breathes the message to seize every opportunity as he has been given a 35 year life expectancy. He auditioned with Stevie Wonder's "I Wish" to which Mariah said, "I'm beyond inspired". While he didn't have the best voice we've ever heard, we're not surprised he made it through to Hollywood.
The end of the last audition day granted us a lovely surprise in the form of a cross dressing Steven Tyler. He showed up as the last lingering auditioner with a blonde wig and red lips, take a look.
Next week Hollywood Week kicks off Wednesday, so you won't want to miss it. Tell us down in the comments your favorite audition from Oklahoma City. Thanks for watching our IDOL CAP, see you next week with more. I'm Misty Kingma for ClevverMusic, see you soon.
