American Idol held its latest round of auditions in Salt Lake City last night.
While a few contestants made names for themselves and advanced to Hollywood, they aren't the lead Idol story this morning.
Instead, we're focused on a report - courtesy of blogger "JoesPlace" - that lists the following singers as being included in season eight's round of 36:
- Adam Lambert: Pictured below, auditioned in San Francisco. Has an extensive background in theater, having just appeared in a production of Wicked. Sang "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen for his initial try out.
- Felicia Barton: Only shown briefly during Louisville auditions. Her music videos and pics have been taken down from MySpace, typically a sign of having advanced. From Virginia Beach.
- Lil Rounds: Auditioned in St. Louis. Lost her home in a tornado. Blew judges away with her rendition of “All I Do” by Stevie Wonder. Compared to Mary J. Blige.
- Kendall Beard: Nashville-based singer/songwriter. Rumored to first audition tonight. Graduated from University of Texas at Austin with a B.A in Communication Studies.
We're gonna add a name to this list ourselves:
- Taylor Vaifanua: Received unanimous approval for Hollywood following her audition last night. Her official website and all photos on MySpace have been removed.
