American Idol Goes to Hollywood!

by at . Comments

On last night's first evening of American Idol auditions in Hollywood, the field was cut down to 104.

There's still a ways to go before we meet the final 36. But a trio of contestants that stood out last night seem like locks to advance at least that far:

  1. Lil Rounds received a rousing ovation following her rendition of "I Will Always Love You."
  2. Jorge Nunez was fashionable in his scarf, and impressive with his version of "Angel."
  3. Danny Gokey showed more talent on "Kiss From a Rose" than he did during his original audition.

Click on the photos of each of these contestants, and then vote in our poll below:

How can you possibly vote? Last night was a soap opera nothing but Drama.........that sucks. I changed channels I got tired of not hearing them sing. To bad I used to like the show but for some reason it has turned into a complete strange mix of drama and rude comments to sothern contestants.
