Episode 3 – Auditions (S9)

Season 9 auditions continue tonight with a stop in Chicago. Tune in as I blog the show live via the East Coast Feed. I will let you know who makes it to Hollywood and hopefully find some video to post.

If you are watching, which I am sure you are, feel free to chat about the show live on the sidebar or leave your thoughts on who your favorites were tonight in a comment.

Don’t forget to join the MyndJack Radio guys and Alan Attebery for The Idol Radio Show tonight as they welcome their special guest, Brent Keith who made the Top 36 during Season 8 of American Idol and performed “Hicktown” during the Group 1 night. (Audition Video Here)

We will be talking to him about his AI experience, having to do that AI interview with Tatiana Del Toro, losing out to Michael Sarver, what his future holds, and anything else that we can think of. We will also be playing his song “Beautiful Attraction” on the show.

So make sure to listen to The Idol Radio Show tonight at 11 PM ET / 10 CT / 8 PT. As always, you can listen live by clicking the Radio link at the top of the page, through iTunes Radio (go to the Talk section and click on the All Digital Radio link), or at TalkRadioX.com.

Keep your eyes peeled as tonight we will hopefully see 2 people from Chicago that make the Top 24. I won’t say who for those that don’t want to be spoiled but there is one guy and one girl from the windy city that end up in the Top 24.

Hollywood Bound Contestants

Katelyn Epperly – I just found my favorite. Sorry Maddy. A beautiful girl and a wonderful voice. Can’t wait for the bikini pics to leak :)




Charity Vance – A beautiful girl with a nice voice but she is to young. Even her voice sounds to young. Don’t think she will make it far.



Angela Martin – Back again. Still nothing exciting for me. She reminds me to much of a Fantasia who I could never stand. She makes Hollywood but that will be as far as she will go.



John Park – Not a fan basically because he is a male but he will do well on the show. The girls should like him.



Paige Dechausse I am in love. Another favorite of mine this season.

Well we sure didn’t see a lot of talent tonight but the few we did see that made it to Hollywood were very good. I know I have found another favorite. How about you? Leave your thoughts in a comment and tune in tomorrow night as the auditions continue.

    @ ABB:

    “I might have a new favorite guy – John Park – love his voice.”

    Same here. I really liked him as well. Very nice ! :smile:

  2. Tommy says:

    I loved Shania… she’s very professional and she knows a lot, but she’s also funny and nice to look at. More of her to the AI or upcoming X-factor, please!

    i like that guy with guitar who sang Heaven. Keith something … too bad they only showed him in the montage.

  4. joeyinc says:

    probably the worst audition episode i ever sat through, hope tomorrow will be better :cwy:

    Katelyn Epperly is totally adorable…love her deep voice. She is really a favorite of mine.

  6. angie says:

    A pretty uneventful audition night. They could have squeezed that down to about 15 minutes and shown Orlando’s auditions with it tonight.

    I like Katelyn and John tonight.

  7. ABB says:

    Shania certainly liked him – “you have a great bottom end” (who says bottom end anyway?!), “you have nice lips” and so on… sounds like she’s been drinking Paula’s Coke.

  8. ABB says:

    I might have a new favorite guy – John Park – love his voice

    @ ABB:

    a couple of hot girls though and that is all that matters :ninja:

  10. ABB says:

    only 15 minutes left and no hot guys
    *stamps foot and pouts*

  11. ABB says:

    A way whole lotta waste o’ breath contestants on here tonight. Hope that’s not a reflection on Chicago.

  12. ABB says:

    Charity was cute, but a little squeaky. To me, at least.

  13. rachel says:

    I actually liked Charity. I think she has great potential.
    AND I bet Slim likes her ! :whistle:

  14. ABB says:

    Oh hey, it took a whole 17 minutes before we heard the “I can’t believe she’s only 16″ comment.

  15. angie says:

    @ Dr. Electro:

    OK, Doc, don’t go tryin’ to steal my thunder now, ya hear?? :tongue:
