A contestant with a partially paralyzed face.

Another with an autisic son.

And still another that spent four years in jail as a teenager.

It's safe to say last night's edition of American Idol was chock full of even more sad/impressive/heart-warming backstories than usual. Also making for an entertaining hour of television? A talented, adorable, funny guest judge: Kristin Chenoweth.

Overall, 31 contestants received a golden ticket to Hollywood. Read all about our favorites in the TV Fanatic rundown of last night's Orlando auditions.
