When it comes to American Idol, I love watching the auditions! I love that we get a chance to “meet”the contestants, hear what’s inspired them to try out for the show and actually listen to them sing their favorite songs. I get so nervous for them and wish they could all get a golden ticket and a trip to Hollywood!
Tonight we were treated to so many talented musicians, it’s unbelievable! Here are a few American Idol season 14 (episode 3) auditions that I think you’ll enjoy.
In a sea of country-favored Idol hopefuls, Alexis may be the only barefooted one. Watch her perform “Little White Church” for judges Harry Connick, Jr., Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez on American Idol. PS: Alexis, I thought I was the only Mexican hillbilly hippie! 😉
Video: On a night filled with unique voices, Kohlton Pascal’s may actually be the most out there – somewhere between Tom Waits and Bruce Springsteen.
Cedric Arce sings Adele’s “Rumor Has It”
One of Keith Urban’s biggest fans, Anton Bushner sings his hit song “Tonight I Wanna Cry” beautifully!
Branson, Missouri native Ellen Petersen plays the banjo during her amazing “American Idol” performance! Love her rendition of “I Want to be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart”!
Spoiler alert, Ellen Petersen gets the golden ticket. As she’s walking out the door, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. convince her to play “The Beverly Hillbillies”! LOVE it!
Ian Subsara and Harry Connick, Jr. perform a “High C” duet/comedy bit!

Little Willie Littlefield’s song “Kansas City” has always been one of my favorite songs! Since my name is Candace, my parents changed the words and would sing “Candace City” to me when I was little. To say I’m a little obsessed with Keith Urban singing MY song is an understatement!!!
