Kayden Stephenson - Oklahoma City Audition... by IdolxMuzicSixteen-year-old Kayden Stephenson auditioned for "American Idol," looking like he's not old enough to be there. But that's because he has Cystic Fibrosis, which means he probably won't live past the age of 35.Kayden says, "It's definitely scary, but also it gives me an opportunity to do everything now while I'm young. I'm doing 'American Idol' because this is my dream. I've always wanted to be on the show, that's why I came here as soon as I got of age."He sings "I Wish" by Stevie Wonder and it's just OK, but the judges just love him and send him through to Hollywood.

'American Idol': Zoanette Johnson's National Anthem puts the judges in stitches

Zoanette Johnson - Oklahoma City Audition... by IdolxMuzicSo, you know how sometimes on "American Idol" there are auditions where you're 90% sure the adult is mentally ill and not in on the joke? This is probably not one of those, but it could go either way. Zoanette Johnson took the judges by surprise with her ... interesting rendition of the National Anthem. It was affected, featured Zoanette's weird, whistle-y upper register and then at the end had some step moves. Beyonce could take a page from Zoanette's book. RELATED: "Idol's" best and worst moments so farThe judges could not stop laughing. Keith Urban actually fell right out of his chair. After Zoanette finished, Randy says, "You're a whole party all by yourself" and Nicki adds, "I am obsessed with you."They put her through to Hollywood and frankly, we're ecstatic. Hollywood Week needs characters like Zoanette to keep things interesting.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/01/american-idol-zoanette-johnsons-national-anthem-puts-the-judges-in-stitches.html

'American Idol': Halie Hilburn is a singing ventriloquist - awesome

Halie Hilburn - Oklahoma City Audition... by IdolxMuzicWe about lost our minds tonight when Halie Hilburn took to the "American Idol" seal for her audition. This country girl is not only a singer -- she's a singing ventriloquist, which is outstanding. She performed "I Wanna Be Your Cowboy Sweetheart" with her puppet Oscar and while she was no Alyse Eady, she definitely did the song proud. We were a little surprised the judges weren't more impressed -- do they know how hard that is to do?But they at least wanted to hear more from her, so she gave them 15 seconds of a second song and the judges put her through with four yes votes. Keith Urban advised her, "Oscar is holding you back ... baby, you can sing."What did you think, "Idol" fans? We could've done without the montage of Oscar ending up in the garbage. That was sad. Don't throw Oscar away!... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/01/american-idol-halie-hilburn-is-a-singing-ventriloquist---awesome.html
