It’s the final stop for the American Idol auditions, Omaha, Nebraska. The one hour show featured many more solid talent, but were there any contestants that really stood out. Here’s a recap of some of the standout singers.Quaid Edwards, a 21-year old college student, who’s Mom toured with Keith Urban with a group called Jolie & the Wanted. Craig hasn’t really sung much before and he has a solid voice. Ticket him for Hollywood.

Madison Walker, a 15-year old, that took on Carrie Underwood’s ‘Before He Cheat’s’. She sang is very well. She could be one to watch.

Tessa Kate, a 25-year old who sings in Branson, Missouri. She takes on Johnny Cash’s ‘Folsom Prison Blues’. Standout voice, Harry Connick Jr. compares her to Barbara Mandrell. I say she was more in the style of Dolly Parton. I really liked her.

Paula Hunt, a 20-year old that sings with the Air Force Community Band. She sings Etta James and has a great voice. She certainly has an old soul. I have a feeling she won’t advance that far, I however, liked her.

212 singers advance to Hollywood. The Hollywood week starts on Wednesday with a major twist promised. It should be fun!
