Well, after yesterday’s debut, the AI crew found themselves on Kansas City, home to American Idol, David Cook. As it is DC’s home state, the judges expected to see some jaw dropping talent, and sure enough, Kansas City delivered.
A total 0f 20+ inspirants earned their Golden Ticket tonight on the second episode of American Idol Season 8. Dreamers and Idol wannabes such as Ashley Anderson, Casey Carlson, Von Smith, Matt Breitzke, Jessica Furney, India McClain, Jamar Rogers, Danny Gokey and Anoop Desai got their Golden Ticket to Hollywood tonight.
A familiar face also appeared on tonight’s episode. Jason Castro, fourth placer on last year’s American Idol gave Paula Abdul a surprise when he arrived to support his brother, Micheal Castro, who also aspire to reach the same height, if not more, as his brother in the previous season.
Micheal Castro managed to make a good enough performance to allow himself to sail through to Hollywood.
However, the same could not be said on contestants such as Chelsea Marguardt, Brian Hetter, James Micheal Avance, Billy Vinson, Chris Jones, Deandre Hopkins, Vaugh English, Jasmine Joseph, Asia McClain and thousands of others who did not make the cut.
Also, on tonight’s episode, everyone was given a sneak preview on next week’s episodes including the infamous Hollywood Week (a.k.a Hell Week) where a lot of drama is sure to unfold.
