Be sure to watch the audition videos below and a sneak peek to episode 6 in New Orleans! PS: We had a chance to “meet” a few of the contestants, be sure to watch those videos too!
American Idol Season 14 Episode 5 Auditions Zachary Johnson sings Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes”!
Video: Hannah Mrozak, age 16. Sometimes there’s nothing to say except “kid’s got a voice” Kid’s got a voice!
Video: Jacob Tolliver age 20, Las Vegas, Nevada. He’s currently in the Million Dollar Quartet and treated us to Jerry Lee Lewis “Whole Lotta Shaking Going On” and the piano!
American Idol Audition: Meet Cindy-Jo Schluer, she’s a 26 year old Pre-K teacher from North Banks, Minnesota. I absolutely loved her rendition of Patsy Cline’s “Crazy”!
Matt Riehle sang Sam & Dave’s “Soul Man” during his American Idol audition in Minneapolis!
American Idol contestant Shannon Berhiaume (age 16) auditions to The Animals “House of the Rising Sun”! AMAZING!
Video: Aaron Bissell age 17 sings for Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. during his American Idol audition!
Video: Harry Connick, Jr. is an accomplished musician sure, but it’s in impressions that his heart truly lies. You’ve seen his New York gangster, his stage mother. Now enjoy the latest addition to his arsenal: an insecure 14-year old girl.
Mark Andrew (age 28, foreman for his family’s landscape business) sings “Soulshine” by The Allman Brothers and “Be Like You” from “The Jungle Book!”
Idol Moments: Harry’s Got Back. By now you know it takes practically nothing to get Harry singing, joking, or in this case, dancing. But when you have Jennifer in the mix, you’re guaranteed a funky good time!
Idol Moments: Bearly Contained Laughter. Comedy is all in the timing, Harry learned, as a joke about being hunted by Hollywood-bound Cindy-Jo Schloer found its perfect punctuation.
Vanessa Andrea, 25 of Porterville, California/North Dakota is definitely one of my favorites! She sang and played the guitar to Grand Funk Railroad – “Some Kind Of Wonderful”! The judges actually told her husband, Jeremy (by phone) that she was going to Hollywood!
American Idol season 14 episode 6 sneak peek in New Orleans, Louisiana!!! Don’t forget to tune into the show on Thursday, January 22 at 8/7c!
