Andy Capwell’s American Idol Recap: Omaha Auditions
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!
