Rose Flack is a super cool blonde chick from Idaho with some killer mini-dreads. She seems very sweet and well-grounded. She went into a nice memorial to her deceased father, as well as her deceased mother. How to deal with such tragedy at a young age and come out so seemingly together. Good for her.
Simon was hot for her saying immediately that she looked “terrific.” He asked her to tell him something about herself to which she responded, “I’m very charming.” . . Well, true. She chose to sing one of my all time favorite songs by Carole King – “I Feel The Earth Move.”
She did pretty well. It’s a hard song to sing. She had nice range and a nice tone.
Paula said that she needed to work on the vocals but that everything else was there. Simon said it wasn’t the best song choice but that there is something special about her that he loves – that she was memorable. Randy said she has a cool vibe. They all sent her through to Hollywood.

Straight off the boat from Samoa, Taylor Vaifanua, chose to sing a song called “Joyful, joyful” for her American Idol audition in Salt Lake City, Utah. Standing 5’11′ at 16 . . she cut an impressive visage. She had a nice soft tone to her voice.
Kara said that she was impressed with her because she had seen her practicing hard in the bathroom. Randy said that she has good natural potential. Randy said it was one of the best vocals and that she was on pitch. Simon said yes, as did everyone else. I had to re-watch it to see what they were talking about. She does have a great tone but it wasn’t that memorable.

Austin Sisneros is a sweet young blonde boy who came to American Idol to let people know that it’s ok to follow your dreams. That’s a nice sentiment from a student body president. He was surprising to me. He had a very nice tone and a very soulful style that was unexpected given his all american look.
Randy said that he thought it was a weird song choice but that it was ok. I think it was just that it was not what you would have expected to come out of him. It was very mature. Simon was huffing and puffing. He sang another one that was equally soulful. Randy said he definitely has a voice but he was going to send him through due to perseverance. Kara said he is genuine and there is something there. Paula agreed and added that he is very charming. Simon said that he just needed to be young and that he could be great. They all sent him through.

Recently divorced mother of one, Megan Corkrey, is a cutie with a severe tattoo on her right arm and shoulder. She seems very sweet. She chose to sing “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man of Mine.” She definitely has an interesting voice with a good range. I’m not sure that she will be able to get through very far but maybe she can do a bit more than the jazzy thing.
Randy said he kind of liked her and that there was something there. Paula agreed and said that she loved her. Simon said that he loved it and that she was unique and memorable. Kara said she had a glow and an adorable face. They all sent her through to Hollywood.
